Unrelated: I listened to Mad Season
Surprise surprise....sounds like the Staley/Alice In Chains dark-vocal-harmony sound drizzled over a bunch of dull low-key Pearl Jam songs. I didn't care for it. In particular "Lifeless Dead" and "I Don't Know Anything" are a one-two punch of dull crap, the latter sounds like a lobotomized version of Badmotorfinger by Soundgarden.
Pugeye, have you heard Green River? Mother Love Bone? Temple Of The Dog? I think there's a reason these "90s supergroup" albums aren't terribly well remembered or discussed today. And while I didn't think MS had horrible cover art, I sure will say it doesn't give ANY clue as to what the album will be like!
