Mudhoney: Superfuzz Bigmuff plus Early Singles
2

Sound — 10
When it comes to grunge music, Mudhoney invented it, literally. Throughout thier long history, Mudhoney has been one of the few bands who have been able to maintain thier slow, sludgy, yet raw and energetic sound that can be called grunge. Superfuzz Bigmuff is probably the best (and most well-known) example of Mudhoney's work. A sound very reminescent of the earlier days when artits such as Nirvana and Soundgarden were still recording with Jack Endino.

Mark Arm's vocals definately are unique but have set a standard that many follow today. The raspy and angry sounding vocals sing along to over distorted guitars to lyrics that range from lost love to satirical and saracastic attacks on social issues such as racism and prejudice.

Overall Impression — 8
While it may not be as well known as Nevermind or Badmotorfinger, Superfuzz Bigmuff is no doubt a huge influence in the grunge movement of the 1990's. Some of the most impressive songs on the album are harder In 'N' Out of Grace to the softer If I Think and Need. If this album were stolen/lost, I would definately replace it.
