It remains a mystery how Too High To Die didn't become a huge success. The music presented here fit right in with the alternative and acoustic rock that was popular in the mid-90's. Although the track "Backwater" would become a minor hit single, several other tracks such as the acoustic ballads "Shine" and "Why?" could have also been hits if marketed correctly. The electicism of their earlier albums is on full display here. Whether it's the heavy riffing of "Violet Eyes" and "We Don't Exist", the great melodic alternative tracks "Severed Goddess Hand" and "Flaming Heart", the country of "Comin' Down", or the blues-rock of "Roof With A Hole", everything here is top notch. Other great tracks here include "Things", "Evil Love", and "Never To Be Found." There's also an unlisted remake of their song "Lake Of Fire", which was popularized by Nirvana on MTV Unplugged, at the end of the album. Simply a great album. Highly recommended.
They've never really gotten the recognition they deserved and while they've made a few spotty albums this isn't one of them. From Violet Eyes to the excellent Severed Goddess Hand most of the songs here are excellent and have held up well over the last few years.
"Too High to Die" doesn't quite achieve the heights of II and Up on the Sun, but that's not a criticism. Few albums from any artists hold up well in comparasion with those two albums.
This is a great album and one of the best alternative albums of the '90s.

If this CD had "sucked", needless to say, I would NOT have bought ANY more "Puppets" music. As it has turned out, I have ALL their full & single releases! Read morePublished on Dec 21 2009 by Luap Van Horn
I love these guys. It's super cool that they associated with Kurt Cobain, fore the Meat Puppets music is hip and worthy enough to be played alongside Nirvana's Unplugged. Read morePublished on March 22 2004 by Cally
Definitely one of the great albums from 1994 or even the mid-90s. The Meat Puppets have a country twang mixed with metal power chords that makes this a great album to listen to. Read morePublished on Feb. 23 2004 by Andrew Fernandez
These guys don't exactly remind me of "Dinosaur Jr.", but they do in the way that they're punk and country, as much as they are grunge. They put it all together well. Read morePublished on Feb. 15 2004 by H3@+h
Like a roll of dice, this release turned out to be a winner for me. Strong guitar work, and eclectic arragements, this is one of my favorite alternative bands! Read morePublished on Sept. 6 2003 by Damian P. Gadal
Great album that has a indie rock vibe in the songs "Backwater" and "We Don't Exist." Also of note is the unlisted hidden track, "Lake of Fire" which... Read morePublished on June 24 2003
