Product Description

Dust - Screaming Trees

This product is manufactured on demand using CD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

The Trees' third and best major-label album wasn't an easy one to make: the band felt compelled to scrap the first recording with producer Don Fleming and re-record the songs with George Drakoulias of Black Crowes and Tom Petty fame. But the creative malaise and personal chaos that reportedly plagued the follow-up to 1992's gold-selling Sweet Oblivion are nowhere in evidence in the finished grooves. Dust is a complex, layered effort that transcends the grunge tag so often hung on the band by emphasizing deep roots in psychedelia and folk-rock that have been obscured in the past by the fuzz and fury. As always, Mark Lanegan's smooth-as-bourbon vocals and Gary Lee Conner's thunderstorm guitars are two of the most distinctive instruments Seattle has produced. But what makes this album special is the ensemble playing and the dynamics: The band seems to have listened to Lanegan's call in "Make My Mind" to "Take a minute just to breathe." Sitars, tabla, harmonium, and Mellotron adorn moving midtempo rockers such as "All I Know" and "Dying Days," adding to a world-weary but overall optimistic vibe. Dust could be considered the combination of MTV Unplugged in New York and From the Muddy Banks of the Wishkah that Nirvana was never able to realize--it's a mature, melodic album that doesn't sacrifice the energy of youthful rock & roll abandon. --Jim Derogatis

Customer Reviews

This is one of the best albums ever.
bleddog
It is a shame that this album never was as successful as these three albums because it is just as good as they are, if not better.
mark
This is a mature and rocking album. "Dying Days" recalls Led Zeppelin.

I know of two criminally overlooked albums in the 90s-and then again a busload which were "simply" overlooked.
Those two are the eponymous album by Mad Season and "Dust" by the Screaming Trees.
The thing about the 'Trees is that for years it was anticipated they'd deliver a brilliant album and for years it wasn't happening. A true riddle really, since all the necessary elements were there: an incredible singer, and a truly great band to back him up. Yet, if you listen to their earlier albums the mystery gets solved. Internal band strifes, bad producing, or simply the chemistry not really coming together were the factors responsible for those rather "so and so" early efforts.
Once all the components were just right, the result, in "Dust", was exactly what many people were hoping for:
absolutely stunning.
The thing is that by then, noone was expecting anything much from the Trees and thus this masterpiece went largely unnoticed, when in fact, well, in fact it was one of the very best albums of the whole decade!
But it gets more interesting actually. "Dust", despite what many people think (in their desire to categorise everything) was not just "another grunge album". It probably had as little to do with grunge as Soundgarden did. What it was, was a gorgeous bluesy but unmistakably rock album with a capital "R".
But that alone isn't what makes it so great.
What makes it stand out is that it's one of those albums where the intensity of the music and the singing is so capturing that it's irresistible. "Dust" isnt one of those albums to listen to a few times and put it away for good. It's without a doubt an LP that you will come back to many times for years to come because it leaves a mark on
the listener like few albums do.

When I listen to "Dust" nowadays it really makes me question why the Screaming Trees never received the recognition of their contemporaries. While Alice In Chains, Nirvana, Soundgarden and Pearl Jam surged into the limelight with passionate grit and angst, The Trees forged their own loyal allegiance through low-key yet equally admirable releases. "Dust" was the last of these releases, and proved to be a glorious swansong and the band's best.

For those unaware of the band's style and sound, I would urge you to try and separate them from their grunge era tag. Do not expect raging distorted guitars and aggressive vocals. Instead Screaming Trees fuse soaring melodies and harmonies, infectious chorus hooks and 60s psychedelic rock into their sound. The result is intriguing and unique, and is given further prowess and individuality by front man Mark Lanegan. Lanegan's wonderful gravely and brooding tone is sumptuous throughout, elevating the band's music.

What makes "Dust" such a special album for me is its consistency. The band was always able to write excellent songs, but always seemed to struggle to recreate this consistently throughout an album. "Sweet Oblivion" touched on the consistency needed, but still contained the odd lacking track that I would always skip. With "Dust" I can simply press play, sit back and enjoy its entirety. There are still standout tracks however, such as the stunning "All I Know" which has the most glorious of chorus harmonies. "Make My Mind" is one of the band's classic songs; showcases great pop sensibility in the main hook. "Dying Days" is perhaps the band's most well crafted song, shifting between subtle slow-burning verses and uplifting choruses.

Back in the "grunge" days I was somewhat of a screaming trees fan. I bought DUST in '96 when it came out and loved it. Then my car got broken into and the CD vanished. 4 Years later, I remembered DUST and snagged myself another copy. Upon playing it for the first time in years I was ablsolutely taken all over again. This album is such a mastierpiece of music it's almost unreal. It's like a dream. It makes me want to start a rock n' roll band. Halo of Ashes is the perfect starter. All I know feels like an old friend to me. Sworn and Broken is likely my favorite song and every time I hear that incredible harpsicord solo it sends shivers up my spine. The Screaming Trees were a band torn apart by constant inter-band turmoil. The making of this album was perhaps the pinacle of that turmoil. However, dispite all the problems the band had and whether they knew it or not, they produced what I consider one of the best rock albums ever made. YOU MUST OWN THIS ALBUM!

Like some of the previous reviewers have stated, it is too bad that the Screaming Trees are basically ignored in the U.S. This album once again proves how important they are to the few who listen to them. "All I Know," "Sworn and Broken," "Witness," and "Dying Days" are great rock tunes, and the rest of the songs are only a notch below these. When I listened to "Dying Days" for the first time, I knew within ten seconds that it would be a song I would always remember. I only hope this band releases another album sometime in the future because I have heard nothing about them lately.
