So you've always wondered about Screaming Trees but never got any? Well here you go. A very good and lengthy collection from mostly the last three albums. The first track is from the "Something About Today" EP, the next three are from "Uncle Anesthesia", the next seven are off the excellent "Sweet Oblivion" album, then three non-album tracks, and five from "Dust". My only complaints are, only three songs from "Uncle Anesthesia", and where is "All I Know" from the last album? But, what's here is awesome stuff, from a very underrated band. Personally, I like Screaming Trees just as much as Pearl Jam or Soundgarden, and will listen to them until my "Dying Days".

Like many people I had heard the catchy `Dream' single when it got a lot of play on MTV, back in 97. But unlike most, I have been privileged to hear all of his other wonderful and mind expanding songs on the album. This album has been one of my true loves throughout all of my musical experiences, and I can safely say it always will be. As stated above, this is one of the only true philosophical albums I have ever come across. The theories and ideas expressed throughout the entire CD will not only challenge you to focus on the intricate melding between the lyrics and the amazing sampling, but also to think of greater possibilities about life and the universe as a whole. This album did not receive the recognition it truly deserves, but then again, I think it works on a higher level then what most of us are used to.

Format: Audio CD
The Screaming Trees are well known to close watchers of the alternative scene in the US in the early nineties. While other Pacific Northwest bands like Nirvana and Soundgarden were achieving nationwide success, the Trees attained notoriety only among the more discerning fans. Part of the problem was that while they cuts some amazingly great tracks, none of their individual albums rated as indisputable masterpieces. Their first several albums especially contain many weak tracks alongside utter gems. Even their two best albums, SWEET OBLIVION and DUST, had their weak moments. The problem is that the Pacific Northwest scene was on one level focused on album-oriented bands, while the Screaming Trees made great singles but less-than-spectacular albums. Their other great disadvantage was that they were simply not a good-looking group. Some of their were big, either in height or girth, and the frankly looked a bit menacing.

That is why OCEAN OF CONFUSION is a nearly perfect introduction to the Screaming Trees. And although I've enjoyed their albums, I find I almost never listen to any of their music except this compilation disc. In fact, if someone gets this and is truly blown away by what they hear, the next album I recommend them getting is not one of the individual albums, but a second compilation, ANTHOLOGY: SST YEARS 1985-89. That disc covers their earlier years just as this one covers the second half of their career. If one wants more after that, I recommend instead of more Screaming Trees, exploring the solo albums of the band's singer and songwriter Mark Lanegan, especially WHISKEY FOR THE HOLY GHOST.

But though the individual albums weren't great as albums, all contained a few spectacularly great singles.

If you don't have any other albums from the band, this is the place to start. It's a shame that they didn't get more attention then they did, but "Nearly Lost You" from the platinum "Singles" soundtrack helped their 2nd major label LP "Sweet Oblivion" sell around 300,000 copies. There is plenty here to love, and shouldn't be looked over. But where is some of their earlier stuff and All I Know from Dust? I guess Sony couldn't get their hands on their earlier stuff. But what you get it still great.

I was really surprised to see the negative reviews of this album. Sure not all the songs are not as accessible as Dream might be, but overall I really enjoy listening to the creative ramblings that this album goes through. As for people not liking the lyrics it's sad to see so many people judge them so harshly. Radiohead and Nirvana and even the Doors have lyrics that don't make "sense", but they're still cool to listen to. It's a shame that more people don't have a more open mind for these kinds of things. It's a great album if you're into fun experimental music.

A well put together compilation, the bonus tracks make for a worthwhile investment even if you already have some or all of the albums. However, one question remains- where the heck is Bed Of Roses? It was their hightest charting track on the radio, afterall.

I came across this group quite by accident... turns out I was working with one of the band members and didn't know it... reading the news one day I saw that so and so had a birthday that day... asked my friend if that was him and he admitted it... then we started talking about his music, he burned a cd of a few of his favorites... I was hooked... bought this album and plan to buy Anthology: SST Years 1985-1989 next, based on his recommendation. These guys have a great sound. Love the sound, it's mellow, classic and vibrant... it reaches out to one at many levels and is not offensive, obnoxious, depressing or disgusting... it's reflective, melodic... Traveler, Dying Days, and Paperback Bible are some of my favorites... looking forward to listening to the other albums... these guys are extremely underrated...
