Product Description

The Meat Puppets at their psychedelic peak. A tightly crafted labor of love, "Mirage" was released in Spring of 1987 to increasing interest from mainstream rock circles. Joe Sasfy (Washington Post) proclaimed it "their finest, as close to a polished artistic arrival as you'd want from a frisky anti-pop band committed to musical spontaneity and adventure." This edition of "Mirage" has been expanded to include five extra tracks, featuring early demos of "The Mighty Zero," and "Liquified," as well as a cover of the Presley movie shlock, "Rubberneckin'," and the previously unheard "Grand Intro." --This text refers to an alternate Audio CD edition.

Mirage is exactly what you have heard it was, The meat puppets psycadellic masterpiece. I don't know how any meat puppets fan could dislike this album it's probobly my third favorite album of theres. Every song is so colorful and the album as a whole paints the picture of the album cover when you hear it. The opening of the album starts off with curts psycadellic guitar which is the intro to the laid back title track. Quit it is an all out Meat Puppets rocker which you can't help but really get into. Get on down is a funny song where the music just makes you want to do a stupid little dance as well as sing along too. The lyrics have to do with taking your car apart and what not. A Hundred Miles is probobly my favorite track where the music in the verses have a get up and grove beat and the chorus is the part of the song that rocks! If you liked Up on the Sun, Meat Puppets II, and Too High to Die then you will most likely love this and yor collection should not be without this. If you want to start with this album then go ahead and click buy cd and wait for the glorious day when one of rock's greatest masterpieces comes on your doorstep.

The trilogy my headline speaks of began with "Meat Puppets II", continued with "Up On The Sun"... and brought you here, to "Mirage". Mirage is a crystalline view of sweat, thirst, rezilliance, joy, sadness... all of the things that make life worth living. Few bands can sum up an entire lifetimes worth of emotions in less than 45 minutes the way that the Mup's can... and this record is a solid testament to that fact. This record is equal to the previous two that came before it... and should be treated as the monument to Americana that it is.
You have despair and loss in "Love Our Children Forever". You have a sense of nature's elements in "The Wind And Rain". You can even have some mindless fun in "Get On Down". You can experience 75 years worth of living in suburban America by just spinning this disc once.
And how many bands do you know of that can deliver an entire lifetimes worth of emotions on one silver disc?

This is my favorite disc by a band with a fantastic musical dynamic that draws on such a wide influence of styles. This disc has a pretty strong country flavor, the playing is swell, most of the songs are good ones. I really like this period of their work, but my main attraction to this band is that each album is unique in style, yet so absolutely Meat Puppets! Curt Kirkwood's guitar work is bitchen, as always!
