About this item
On their swansong 1996 album, grunge legends the Screaming Trees unleashed one of the greatest rock albums of recent years. Led by Mark Lanegan (now with Queens of the Stone Age) and the Conner brothers, "Dust" is a stunning blend of punk, classic rock and raw, bluesey vocals that recalls Hendrix, The Byrds, Zeppelin, Sabbath, Howlin' Wolf but at the same time, as with all great music, totally transcends crude comparisons. The songs veer from blasting rock'n'roll workouts, bruised ballads and mellotron-led drone workouts. Along with Nirvana and Mudhoney, the Trees deserve to be remembered as leaders of the grunge scene, regardless of matters such as record sales and gimmicky music videos.
