Product Description

Product Description

Import only 180 gram audiophile vinyl pressing. 2010.


The Screaming Trees should've had it all, and Sweet Oblivion is the album that should've given it to them. The Ellensburg, Washington, band's second major-label disc is as expert a set of pounding grunge and shifting moods as anything this side of Nirvana. But despite a set of brilliant hooks, intriguing lyrics ("Shadow of the Season," "Julie Paradise"), and Mark Lanegan's attention-getting vocals, it stopped short of going gold. Still, along with its belated follow-up, Dust, this is a masterwork of '90s hard rock. --Rickey Wright --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I had read and been told by my friends that the Screaming Trees were one of the most underrated bands of the 90's. I didn't know how right they all were until I listened to this album. Sweet Oblivion is just, well, amazing. It should have made the Screaming Trees a house hold name just as 'Ten' did for Pearl Jam, and 'Nevermind' did for Nirvana. The Screaming Trees put the right blend of mellowness with rock so Sweet Oblivion never becomes boaring.
Everything in this album works, there are extras added into the background of songs that acompany the music so well whether it is tamborine in 'Dollar Bill' or organ in 'Nearly Lost You'
I must say that Mark Lanegan has a unique voice that can be so soothing yet still rock at the same time, it's sort of haunting. You may have heard him doing vocals on the Queens of the Stone Age albums 'R' and 'Songs for the Deaf'. He also co-wrote a few of the songs on 'Songs for the Deaf' such as 'No One Knows'(he can be see in the video for this song as the guy in the jeep with the hat on I think he's in the middle). Oddly this is also the name of a song he wrote on Sweet Oblivion. But don't think that these songs are the same because THEY AREN'T, the QOTSA version is heavier with different music and lyrics. The version on Sweet Oblivion is softer and more like a ballad but still nontheless a great song.
Truthfully I will admit that the first few times I listened to the album I didn't think it was amazing, it wasn't bad but it wasn't completely great either. After listening to it for a little while I got a chance to really see how great this album is. Sweet Oblivion is a masterpiece and will stay in my CD collection for years to come.

I walked out the door about 10 year ago...and told my household
I was going out to find Sweet Oblivion!!!..Well that night I went out to a friends house , drank a bottle of vodka,8 beers and went driving...crashed my car...went to jail...all that...damn...
Now all these years later...Im listening to the cd again...and Im floored...Mark Lanegan sounds like a dying man with some hope,,,,and the band rocks..the death chant...this is not the Grunge band that the papers talked about...this is the real stuff...pain...hell...drugs..drinking....man Im glad Im still around to write this...
Rock on...

I still remember the first time I heard and saw the video to Screaming Tree's "Nearly Lost You:, I was in a Louisville hotel fixing to start some training for a new job. That was a wild time. I was turning 20 and it is a wonder I am still around to tell about it. I found this cd and got to listening to i and man I wish I had got to see them. Grunge rock still is amazing! This cd is an essential to any person who experienced the grundge movement during the 90's. Get it now!!!
