i remember buying Apple in 1990 only a few weeks after the fatal heroin overdose of song writing genius Andrew Wood, it really is a shame, this band had it all, a charismatic lead singer, tight musicianship and what i believe to be the most inventive band name ever. There is no doubt in my mind, Mother Love Bone would have been just as, if not bigger then Pearl Jam(most likely because their albums would have been more accessible to the general public over later Pearl Jam releases). With touching ballads(Stargazer, Crown Of Thorns, Man Of Golden Words, Bone China) and flatout hard rockin' tunes(This Is Shangri-La, Captain Hi-Top, Heartshine, Come Bite The Apple), this band had the potential to be the next Queen or Led Zeppelin. Do yourself a favour, BUY THIS ALBUM, YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT.

OK first of all i'd like to make something clear to those who seem to think you can't like Mother Love Bone AND Pearl Jam - Both bands are absolutely stunning. Andy and Eddie were two completely different people and it doesn't detract from either band.

Now, I will say something that sums up Apple and Mother Love Bone as a whole - Special. There is no other way to describe it. Sometimes a band comes along and is just so incredibly different, beautiful. stunning and tons more superlatives that don't even begin to fully describe the talent here. There is something almost mystical about MLB. Firstly Andy Wood was destined to be a star. There are just some people that were put on earth to entertain and he was one of them. However, he was not here for simple shallow entertainment. One listen to Man of Golden Words or Bone China will tell you that.

And none of this so far has mentioned Crown of Thorns. If you can get hold of the Chloe Dancer/Crown of Thorns version you will be witnessing one of the most amazing songs ever written. Im sory if I sound naive and gushing here but there are no words to describe what this song does to me.

I picked this CD up about late 1992, when Pearl Jam was quickly on the rise and i continue to listen to it, to this day. Andy Wood was a total genius and could have been the Jim Morrison of this generation had he not died before his band had the chance to become huge, which they certainly would have. a truly underlooked classic and a MUST for fans of the Seattle Scene.

In an alternative universe Mother Love Bone is a household name, praised by critics and recognized as one of the best bands of the 90s, and no one has ever heard the words "Pearl Jam" mentioned in that order. In this universe singer Andrew Wood was one of the biggest rock stars of the 1990s and he continues to enjoy his celebrity today....

Listening to "Apple" (1990) it's easy to ask, "what could have been?" If Andrew Wood hadn't died of a drug overdose, what would his status and the status of Mother Love Bone be today? What great music would they have gone on to record?

But alas, Mother Love Bone died along with Andrew Wood and one is left to speculate. What we are left with is just one album and an EP, the sole testaments of a great band.

While there are a fair amount of albums that weren't recognized in their day (like Love's "Forever Changes" or The Velvet Underground and Nico, both 1967) no album has been as criminally neglected as "Apple." While the album received and still receives good-to-glowing reviews and "Crown of Thorns" is considered a classic, the band and their music, have been, overall, greatly overlooked and under appreciated.

What exactly was the sound of this great band? Grunge, right? After all, Mother Love Bone was from Seattle and three of the band members (Ament, Gossard and Bruce Fairweather) were in the Green River (one of the pioneers of Seattle grunge) so "Apple" should have a total grungy sound, right? Well, not exactly.

Listening to Mother Love Bone and then comparing it with Mudhoney, it's clear that when Green River split, singer Mark Arm took the band's sound with him.

My love for Pearl Jam took me to Mother Love Bone and that was the way i knew about them. I didn't know they existed at all . Before buying this album couple weeks ago ,i had only listened CHLOE'S DANCER/CROWN OF TORNS on the soundtrack of the movie Singles...I pretty much bought this album blindfolded and what a surprise !!!!! THIS IS A GREAT GREAT ALBUM ,TOTALLY MONEY WORTH IT !!! WOW !!! Have Andy Wood not died, i am sure they would had been such a great rock band , iconic just at the same level as other bands that came later during the grunge era. althought MOTHER LOVE BONE was not a grunge band , you could understand that something big was brewing in Seattle in the very early 90's /late 80's .
Great great songs !!! a must buy if you love rock/grunge !!!

To me Andrew Woods was the most charismatic, talented and promising epic rock ballad writer and vocalist not only coming out of Seattle but coming out of rock music in general. I know this sounds absolutely ridiculous and crazy. Unless you were a part of the 1990s grunge rock music movement you might have not even heard his name before. Andrew Woods became known pretty well in Seattle in 1998, when former members of a band called Green River, namely Stone Gossard, Jeff Ament and Bruce Fairweather formed a new band together with Greg Gilmore, and Andrew Woods who had closed his own prior creation, Malfunkshun. The band was called Mother Love Bone and became fairly well known in the area due mostly to Andrew Woods' glamorous on stage persona. His clothes were flamboyant and psychedelic and his act was interactive and breathtaking. After releasing an ep Shine in 1989 they have recorded this album Apple in 1990 but unfortunately a few days before the scheduled release of this music Andrew Woods overdosed on heroine, his longer term addiction. The music of this album has its own special mood but it could be characterized as a mixture of hard and grunge and glam rock with 4 beautiful epic rock ballads mixed within. All these ballads were written by Andrew Woods. Together with a couple of other great songs of faster and mixed tempo, Bone China and Stardog Champion written by Stone Gossard, these softer rock songs: Stargazer, Man Of Golden Words, Gentle Groove and Crown Of Thorns are my reason for writing this review, because these songs are what I love about this album. Andrew Woods wrote all lyrics for Mother Love Bone and besides being intensely powerful in their own special fragmented way they project certain poetic hazy dreamy quality accentuated by his spectacular way of singing.Read more ›
