Product Description

The Meat Puppets are legends - in the sense that bazillions of people actually love them just for being themselves and doing whatever suits their skewed tastes, prods their warped senses of humor and echoes their unique experience as blotter-addled, southwestern desperados with guitars, on a vision quest beyond the punk rock, beyond where the spirits of CSN&Y, Black Flag and the Louvin Brothers crouch together by firelight beneath the Mesa...

great Puppets reunion July 17 2007
By D. simonton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It's great to hear the reunited Kiekwood brothers. Personally, I liked the last incarnation of the Puppets on Golden Lies. And Curt's other ventures, Eyes Adrift, Volcano and his solo cd, were all very good. But the new album, Rise To Your Knees takes the band to a new level. The current Puppets are a little more serious and laid back. Songs like Spit, Stone Eyes, and The Ship are simply beautiful. Upbeat songs like Radio Moth and New Leaf are welcome additions, however a different version of New Leaf recorded by the previous members from Golden Lies was previously released on the Meat Puppets complilation a few years ago. I would like to have heard Chris' bass and vocals a little more, but this album is definately well worth buying.

Arizona desert-rockers return July 20 2007
By Likebeingalive - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Having had a few days to digest the first proper release by Meat Puppets in twelve years, I feel I have reached a verdict. First off, let me state up front that I hold this band in extemely high regard. To me, they are legends who have had a profound impact on my musical sensibilites. I enjoy all of their albums, with my favorites being Up on the Sun, Meat Puppets II, and Forbidden Places. Prior to the release of Rise to Your Knees, I read several reviews which invariably compared this release to their SST catalog and essentially all reviews reached the conclusion that it didn't hold a candle to those albums. One American socio-political publication which masquarades as a music magazine went so far as to give it only one-and-a-half stars out of a possible five. However, I came across an interview with Curt Kirkwood in which he expressed his love and enthusiasm for Rise to Your Knees. Now being a huge Puppets fan whose word am I to take? Obviously, Curt's and boy am I glad I did because this album rocks. In true Puppets fashion it is inventive, imaginative, and endlessly creative. All of the familiar elements are present- cosmic guitar riffs, trippy sonics, and surreal lyrical imagery. There is a reflective theme throughout, perhaps attributable to aging and/or Cris' struggle with substance abuse. By the way, we're all rooting for you Cris, you rock so hard! Anyhow, if I had to compare it to other Puppets records I would say it most closely resembles Too High to Die and No Joke. Songs run the gamut from traditional Puppets rockers (New Leaf, Disappear, Radio Moth), to poppier fare (Enemy Love Song, Island) to ghostly space rock (The Ship, Fly Like the Wind). Many songs find a groove and ride it into the ground in a way reminiscent of the 1986 song Out My Way. All in all the brothers Kirkwood and new drummer Ted Marcus have created another unique masterpiece in classic Meat Puppets fashion that will provide years of listening enjoyment for those dedicated to this wonderful band. I leave tomorrow to see them play in South Carolina. Can't wait...

Worth the wait July 18 2007
By Carol Pezet - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
"Rise to your knees" was well worth the wait. There isn't a song on this album to skip. From the first song to the last, this album is complete gold. The Kirkwoods are still at their best, and new drummer Ted Marcus fits perfectly as a puppet. Buy this album now, you won't regret it. I would go as far as to name it "Best album of 2007".

Meat Puppets return ... pop music immediately rendered irrelevant Jan. 25 2008
By J. E. Werme - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
As a devoted Meathead and someone who has been disgusted with the downturn in pop music since the mid-90's, I was very excited to find that Kurt and Chris were recording together again. Just knowing that Chris was alive and well after all he's been though was great news. When Kurt Kirkwood released his solo record, "Snow", I figured the Meat Puppets were officially done recording. "Rise to your knees", while not the best work by the Brothers Meat, is certainly a strong record and reflects appropriately on their work over the past 25+ years. The new recording of "New Leaf" is beautiful in its symbolism. "Fly like the wind" is a standout song on this record, while other tunes (Tiny Kingdom, Spit, Light the Fire, etc.) carry the weight of the album. If you're familiar with the Meat Puppets extensive song catalog, this record will be sound familiar and comfortable. If you haven't spent the last 20 years listening to the Kirkwoods' music, this is not the record to start with (go with Meat Puppets II, Up On the Sun, Forbidden Places, and Too High to Die). With the Puppets once again recording, rock music may just remain relavent, for at least some of us, for at least a little while longer.

Psychedelic folk rock. Love it April 15 2009
By L. Sorensen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
These dudes sure have done a lot of drugs. You'd have to to be making music this weird. But don't worry, it's weird in a good way. I would recommend this album to almost anyone. I think it's appeal is broad enough to be appreciated by anyone with an open mind. You'd have to be pretty fragile to get scared off by this one. It's totally mellow, fun and often wacky. You can't hear much of the punk rock roots in this album, the screaching and screaming vocals of their earliest records from the 80's and early 90's are long gone, and they found a nice niche in this album. On a couple songs you can hear their classic country bluegrass sound, which is nice. The banjo pickin' on "Tiny Kingdom" made that song an instant favorite of mine. My other favorites are "Fly Like the Wind", "Stone Eyes", and "Island" because they are just so damn catchy and the lyrics are pure Meat Puppets goodness. I also love "Enemy Love Song" for its wacky upbeat sound. So if you are a Meat Puppets fan and don't have this one, it's a must have. If you're new to their sound, you might want to check out their hit album "Too High To Die" first, so you can here the sound that made them famous. It's another one of my favorites.
