Product Description


By their fourth album (1987), the Phoenix trio had turned into a full-fledged roots-rock band, leaving their old hard-core peers far behind and instead occupying the territory more commonly associated with the full-on boogie of ZZ Top or the Grateful Dead's wanton self-indulgence. Of course, you still had Curt Kirkwood's innate feel for the desert coming through on songs such as the rollicking "Look at the Rain" and the plangent "Crazy." Listening to the heat-evocative "Sexy Music," you can hear the Meat Puppets' influence on 1998's generation of alt-country rockers, from Mike Ireland and Holler to the Pernice Brothers and upwards. Only occasionally do the trio degenerate into their old warped style (the bonus track "I Can't Be Counted On"); mostly they play it straight. Includes five unreleased bonus tracks. --Everett True

Product Description

Vinyl version, includes download card! Hard driving riff rock, Meat Puppets style. "Huevos" was recorded in four days and released less than six months after "Mirage". But where that album was spacey and lush, "Huevos" is rough and spontaneous.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great hard driving riff rock. June 7 2001
Format:Audio CD
This one is a great purchase by one of my top 10 favorite bands. I am pretty surprised that I am only the third person to review this. This album is a very stripped down to the influencess of ZZ Top and man can you hear the ZZ Top influence. Derecks drumming is very similar to Frank Beard's on Paradise. Look at the rain is absolutely the best song on this album and Curt's voice is way out there on the chorus. Some people may dislike this album saying this is a ZZ Top wannabe album but obviously those people just don't get the pure masterpiece of this great album. Every time I listen to it it just really hits me and sounds phoenominal. Another great twisted rocker on this is Automatic Mojo with the great riffs and the beat of the drums. Sexy Music is a great song that almost puts you in a trance. Man get this album you really need this in your cd collection. If you don't have any Meat Puppet cds and you are wondering if you should get this one first. I will not argue with you this will be a great choice to start with. No die hard Meat Puppet fan should not have this in there collection. If this isn't in there collection with Up On The Sun and Meat Puppets II then I guess they can't be counted on at all. : )

2.0 out of 5 stars Bland Nov. 13 2001

I've heard everything the puppets released except for three records (forbidden places, monsters, and too high to die), and so far I rank this as their worst effort.
It's a much more radio-friendly effort than their earlier works. That in and of itself is not always a bad thing, but this cd really bores me.
I guess Automatic Mojo is decent, but I MUCH prefer the version that appears on LIve in Montana. As far as I'm concerned the only essential song on here is Sexy Music.
The rest of the album is OK at best. Bad Love and Dry Rain are my least favorite puppets songs ever. How anemic can a chorus get?
Instead of Huevos, you should get Meat Puppets II or Out My Way. Live in Montana is also very good, and I also really liked their debut album (although not recommended for beginners, as its incoherent mumble/scream vocals might turn some people off).

5.0 out of 5 stars A NON-REVIEWER FINALLY SPEAKS July 25 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is my favorite and perhaps the best Meat Puppets album for this simple reason: It rocks. Not only that, but it rocks in a fun and sexy way (unlike the heavy-handed "Monsters" followup disc). Some of the best interactions in rock have occurred in the trio setting, and this disc shows how three guys can cruise to the outer reaches of musical creativity together. There are no weak tracks here, the musical interaction is uncanny, and each of these guys is a virtuoso of groove on these tunes. Curt's guitar fills in particular are awe-inspiring. Supposedly this was a low-key, hasty effort after the "Mirage" disc, but you wouldn't guess that from the deft performances and uniformly creative compositions. Yeah, yeah "MP-2" is quirkier, and "Up On The Sun" is pretty good, but "Huevos" kicks tuchas!

This record shows more of Curt's astounding and astoundingly individual vocal talents, the first time he breaks into 'This is Paradise!' you can truly believe him. I found some tracks more difficult to accept musically than others on this album, an example would be 'Look at the Rain' and 'Fruit', however after the first few times you hear them, they start to become more and more catchy. If you've never heard the Meat Puppets before I'd suggest maybe 'Up on The Sun' instead or 'Meat Puppets II'. However, don't let that put you off buying this album next, the tracks 'Paradise', 'Sexy music', 'Automatic Mojo' and 'I Can't be Counted On' are classics that must be heard.
Also, if you happen to get the re-release of this album you get a video of the 'Pups performing 'Automatic mojo' live....like the album itself, it's something not to be missed.
