Like a high school girl who latched onto "Backwater" on a whim, this is the only Meat Puppets album I own. When and why I bought it, I can't remember. I was probably going through a "90's bands who jumped from indies to majors" phase, or something of the sort.
I've barely ever listened to this, but I've been spinning it over the last few days. And it's pretty good. It sucks that that's all I can really say about it. I'd like to be able to compare it to their other albums (the band had been around for over a decade at this point), but I have no frame of reference.
I am a fan of "Backwater," and while that's certainly the catchiest track here, there's plenty of other good stuff. I just haven't ever taken the time to really dive deep into it. I think at some point I planned to get into the Meat Puppets. Probably should have started at the beginning.
There's still time.
