Customer Reviews

Blind Melon's first album is one of the best albums ever.
thomasu69@hotmail.com
With a great mix of blues, funk, and folk, Blind Melon has one of the most unique, fresh sounds in music.
JD Mills
In my opinion a good album is one you like from start to finish, and it flowes well together.

I remembering hearing "No Rain" when it first came out on the radio and it instantly became my childhood favorite [I was about 8 at the time]. "No Rain" is a good song and went on to be a decent hit, but unfortunately it turned out to be the only big hit by what turned out to be one of the most underrated bands of the 90's. After seeing the 'Behind The Music' on them I decided to get the cd and it wasn't a dissapointment at all. Sure, No Rain is great but so are "Dear Ol' Dad", "I Wonder", "Drive" and every last one of the songs on this album. There seriously isn't a single bad track [my personal favorite however, besides "No Rain", is "Change"]. If you like Jane's Addiction, The Violent Femmes, or heck, even Green Day then you'll probably like Blind Melon {I mean heck, I usually listen to grunge and hard rock and I still like them]. All of their albums are great and worth buying but their debut, in my opinion, is their best. So do yourself a favor and discover the wonders of Blind Melon!

Many other reviewers have covered my feelings about Shannon Hoon, so I'll just get to the point. I am a young and new fan of Blind Melon. Shannon had already passed on by the time I started getting into music, but I can see why so many people were devestated by the news. Blind Melon is awesome. Anyway, getting to the album, this album is a collection of great songs, with no dud songs. (by dud songs I mean bad songs by good bands) "Soak the Sin" Gets you right into the Blind Melon mood. A rock song, but not a hard one, this is one of my favourites on the album. "Tones of Home" will bring older fans back to their days of love concerts and mary jane. For me it's just a great old fashioned song. The intro for this song is one my favourites. "I Wonder" is a great softer song about challenges and internal struggle that can be quite a motivator. "Paper Scratcher" is an awesome rock song that I look forward to when listening to this album. It's a great pick-up after the sad "I Wonder" This song will put you in a good mood. I think this song would be really popular nowadays. "Dear Ol' Dad" is another old fashioned but really good song. It's one of those songs that kind of drags you in while you listen to it, and you get right into the mood. "Change" was obviously written for a reason. A powerful, meaningful, but sad song, this will make you think. On the down side, this song kind of saddens me. Luckily, the next song up is "No Rain" possibly the happiest song ever written, though the well written lyrics make me think that wasn't the intent. Still, you can't help but smile and sing along with this song. "Deserted" is another one of my favourites. Another self-searching song, but not a sad one.Read more ›

I bought it when it came out. I bought 'Soup' when that came out, and then I bought 'Nico' when that arrived, as well.

Well, it's 15 years later, and now I can't listen to this album. I can't listen to Nico, and while I can occasionally get up to put on Soup, this one gathers the most dust. To call it a solid album is an understatement. To come to terms with it is impossible. I've worn it out and repurchased it probably five times? I even stole my sister's copy.

The songwriting and playing is brutally personal and honest to the point where it frightens me. I get emotionally upset when people bring up the band, the singer, or the songs.

Capitol pressed so many copies that you can buy it here for $.99, and if you ever thought Seward got a good deal...

Shannon Hoon had one of the best voices in 90s rock, and it's quite a shame he died. Every song is a killer, espeically "I Wonder", track three. No Rain is great too, no matter how many times you hear it. Over all, great great stuff.

I just recently got this album, I'd heard "Tones Of Home" and of course "No Rain", and found them both to be pretty good, but didn't really consider the album until a friend of mine put the gorgeous Led Zeppelin III-esque "Change" on a mix tape. I happened to find the album used later, and decided to pick it up. It's a bit different from what you might expect, most of the songs are more rocking than "No Rain" and their "hippy rock" reputation would suggest, and yet despite some similarities to early Pearl Jam and Jane's Addiction (mainly in the late Shannon Hoon's vocal style, which often recalls Perry Farrell), it's a bit too classic rock influenced to quite fit in with typical 90's grunge and alt-rock. However, this is a positive thing in the long run, as it's managed to stand the test of time surprisingly well for a debut by a band with a fairly shortlived 90's career. Although the songs sometimes seem to noodle on for too long, an overall pretty strong sense of melodicism and especially Shannon Hoon's soulful vocals keep this from dragging things down too much. Reccomended if you're a fan of Pearl Jam and Led Zeppelin.

Dear people, This is truly an excellent album. Unless you are deaf and have a problem with the essential fabric of rock'n'roll, you will be touched by this music. This album is one of the best I have heard in a long time, and I haven't even gotten tired of it after all this time. The songs are truly beautiful and well written. If you only liked No Rain, then you will be pleasantly surprised by the rest of the album.
