Product Description

Vinyl LP pressing. Dead Meadow is the reason for the resurgence of heavy, psychedelic rock. Now, they are reaching out from the underground with their Les Paul guitars to deliver their once out-of-print first album in a newly remixed and remastered form. The catalog revisit of this seminal guitar-driven band forces us to connect the dots of recent musical history. --This text refers to the LP Record edition.

By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Feb. 22 2007
Format: Audio CD
Dead Meadow is one of those rock bands that feels classic -- they love vintage hard-rock and psychedelica, as well as fantasy and horror.

All those elements come into play in their self-titled "Dead Meadow," which has fortunately been rereleased after the success of last year's "Feathers." And this particular nugget of hard rock still has it blurry appeal -- a slow-burning, intense stoner-rock sound, with a psychedelic edge and eerie lyrics.

It opens with a staticky, crackly buzzing noise -- then a foghorn-like bass barges in and starts playing ponderously. The one instrument is so overpowering that I had to turn down the volume -- and the drums came in, breaking up the bludgeoning basslines. There are some murmured lyrics, but they're submerged under the heavy stoner riffs.

Having weeded out the casual, the album careens into the faster, drum-driven "Indian Bones," and the eerie, slightly awkward "Dragonfly," with its slow guitar riffs. Then it's back into dense psych-stoner-rock, which is distorted slightly to give it a surreal edge, and swirling electric guitar solos that blossom out.

There's a brief acoustic interlude -- "At the Edge of the Wood" -- which is just a folky, meandering little melody that lacks the heavy, intense feeling of the other songs. It feels a bit out of place, but is followed up by the tightly-wound, aggressive rhythms of the grand finale, "Rocky Mountain High."

"Dead Meadow" is not the best album that this band has put out -- they were all young at the time, and sometimes the music shows their inexperience. But this is also an album that most bands would be proud to produce.

Like the reviewer Danny, I continue to be amazed that fans of such a rich and diverse band like Fugazi can be so narrow minded when it comes to other music. Ian would be ashamed of them. Like that person, I saw Dead Meadow open for Fugazi; I saw them at the Ritz in Raleigh. And you can believe that I was very glad that I got there on time. It may be a cliche, but their music is so refreshing. There's no arrogance or pretension, just three guys rocking out. The music is so rich, the guitar and bass work so thick, that you feel like you can reach out and touch it. Highlights of the record are Sleepy Silver Door, Beyond the Fields We Know, and my personal favorite, Greensky Greenlake. Is the music derivative? Of course it is, but what music isn't these days? At least these guys do justice to their influences, bands like Zeppelin and Sabbath. And don't get hung up on this Stoner Rock label thing....

I am always amazed that such great musicians as Fugazi, with such diverse musical tastes can breed such narrow-minded fans. Reviewer number one appears to fall into this catagory and it's sad. Music shouldn't be so limited and pigeonholed, but we have people like that out there who want all bands to sound the exact same. So, if you want to spend the rest of your life listening to only one form of music then don't listen to this, if you have a mind of your own give it a spin, you might like it.

This album is really good. it's great that band from DC is actually doing something different and thinking for themselves. It's a shame that that Fugazi fan is so lame. He's probably upset that his benefit at the Wilson Center was cancelled and he ran out of tofu treats. But if you like the spirit of rock and roll and believe that music should actually be fun to listen to, buy this album, it's worth every cent!!!!!
