4.0 out of 5 stars Great Intro To Seattle Scene April 24, 2004
By eRgO
Format:Audio CD
This CD captures the early days of the Seattle "grunge" scene, which to me was just a hybird of metal and punk, infused with a 70s rock ideal (see classic Van Halen or The Stooges). Needless to say, in the late 80s and early 90s, this was refreshing stuff. Green River features members of Muhdhoney and Pearl Jam, but the music definitely sounds more like what Mudhoney would later produce. If you're a fan of later Pearl Jam recordings, don't purchase this on the grounds that PJ members were in it. But if you like sloppy, rocking, and heavy guitar rock, this is definitely for you.

Green River ... just the band's name alone conjures up fond memories for those who were there and for those of us who wish we had been there.
Except possibly for the (early) Melvins, Green River was the most inventive hybrid hard rock band on certainly the Seattle scene, if not on the national scene. These two recordings, especially taken together, are sopping wet with ominous, threatening, in-your-face aggression and doom and gloom. Rife with both filthy punk vitriol and over the top 70's heavy metal pomposity, both mini-albums assualt the listener mercilessly, from one second to the next, literally.
Steeped in what sound like Hells' Angels-esque Black Sabbath and Motorhead tributory (and celebratory) riffs, and with enough pent-up and pumped-up blues angst to make John Lee Hooker's head spin, you might wonder what twisted, demented roadhouse these boys crawled out of. There is so much darkness and mayhem within each song, it is almost overwhelming. After all, what could you expect from a group named after the fog-shrouded spawning ground of America's most prolific serial killer?
"This Town" is almost amazing in itself. It should be Green River's aural manifesto, had it not been for the preceding EP "Come on Down". As such, it is full of what made this band so great - the unrelenting, complex (for a garage band) melding of punk, metal, and white boy blues. Mark Arm has never sounded so angry and suicidal.
"P.C.C" is overblown metal at its best. The lyrics are disturbing and comical at the same time.
"Ozzie" is a stroke of genius.

5.0 out of 5 stars glam grunge punk sludge at its best!!!!! July 24, 2001
Format:Audio CD
this is just a great album buy some of the best names in seattle the band members are to be what is mudhoney, mother love bone and pearljam.this album does not sound like really any of those bands but if you listen closely you can hear a litte stooges and newyork doll influence.this is the secound album realise the first was a little more metal with steve turner on guitar(mud honey)but this has some of the best sounds from that area know as seattle .it was a creative peck and you can see why the band fell apart thet did what they had to do start a revolution.the falling did help pave the way of all the other bands to follow the trend of grunge if you dig the history of seattle grunge or just like raw punk intense rock. but if you are looking for other bands that might sound like pearl jam or mud honey go find the real thing instead!!!!!!!1

Green River was an excellent band! They were the FIRST to play what became known as 'grunge' music. Mark Arm invented it, not Kurt Cobain! If you like Nirvana, you'll love Green River ^-^

4.0 out of 5 stars A must have November 25, 1999
Format:Audio CD
If it weren't for Mudhoney, I would give this five stars. Grunge at its best. It sounds like it was recorded in a garage and that is the heart of this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars The way music should be September 14, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I think it's easy for people to write this CD off as horrible after only listening to it once or if they aren't big fans of the grunge scene. But if you love the sounds of early Soundgarden and early Nirvana or Mudhoney, there's no doubt in my mind that you'd love this as well (eventhough no Nirvana or Soundgarden members are in this band, I'm just using them as comparisons).
So if you're a fan of early grunge, this is an absolute must-have. With catchy songs like P.C.C and Baby Takes; powerful songs like Together We'll Never and Forever Means; and obscure gems like Smilin' and Dyin' and One More Stitch, you just can't go wrong. This CD has quickly become one of the most-played CDs in my collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars There are moments of genius August 18, 2008
Format:Audio CD
On this album you have some of the best songs Mark Arm ever sang ("This Town", "Unwind", the cover of "Queen Bitch") with punk guitars, and I'd easily take it over Superfuzz Bigmuff or any Pearl Jam album. Too bad the band had different goals and had to break up.

You can understand that Gossard and Ament were beginning to define a new Seattle sound so that's the cool thing of this album, but I cannot say the same thing of Arm's voice. Read more
