Product Description

Product Description

With no guitars and a half a set of bass strings, Morphine managed to rock harder than most of their fret-bound competition while retaining the slippery nocturnal undercurrent that would become their signature sound. On this 1992 debut album, the Boston trio strips down the minor-key blues of frontman Mark Sandman's former group, Treat Her Right, and adds a host of off-kilter elements. Sandman's slide bass and narcoleptic vocals are perfectly complemented by Dana Colley's frenetic baritone sax, which he plays like a cross between Rahsaan Roland Kirk and Van Der Graaf Generator's David Jackson. Sandman reportedly played one-string bass for this album (he'd later expand to two), and the sound quality here is murkier than on subsequent efforts. But tracks such as the infectious "You Speak My Language" and the prophetic "Do Not Go Quietly unto Your Grave" (Sandman would die onstage in 1999) are powerful indicators of Morphine's dark musical glories to come. --Bill Forman

The music world has lost a truly great poet, musician and genius in Mark Sandman. I am truly grateful to have the opportunity to continue listening to this remarkable band and spread the word to every soul I encounter. I was fortunate enough to see them live...the best 40 minutes of my life. Good, their debut album, is unsurpassed, raw and full of sexy, heartfelt tunes. From the cool, bluesy jazz of "Have a Lucky Day" to the smartest, sexiest song ever written, "You look like rain", to the mysterious, sultry sound of "The other side", there is not a bad song on this recording. As Mark said, "...do not go quietly unto your grave..."ÿ

I was very sad to hear Mark Sandman had died. Of Morphine's albums, their debut is my favorite. The idea behind the group - two-string bass, sax, and drums - sounds impossible. But it creates an atmosphere evoking smoky bars and irresistable sleaziness. "You Speak My Language" is my wive's and my "song", although it's hardly sentimental. "You Look Like Rain" is probably the ultimate come-on to any woman with half a brain. A world without Mark Sandman is a lesser world indeed.

Sultry sax, loping drums, dreamy bass, smart & sexy lyrics/vocals. I have every release by Morphine, but 'Good' started the whole slow-burning sexy journey. When I start feeling the pain of todays artery-clogging polyglot "flavors of the month" (or, as my 10 year old son helped me realize when he proclaimed, "there are too many bands"), I simply load up my carousel with a 5-disc dose of Morphine. Like a slow-drip morphine pump, it sure kills my pain.

I can't say enough good things about Mark Sandman and Morphine. Their 1st 3 albums rank as some of the best music of the last 25 years or so. The cd player in my car has refused to eject 'Good' for over a year. It's either broke, or it loves the music. Either way I don't care, it's worth listening to 1000s of times.

Mark Sandman's writing is pure lyrical genius, and his soulful voice brings it out all the more. This is acclaimed as Morphine's best album, and I agree with that. Of course I haven't heard much by them I haven't liked. Very ecclectic. Very good.
