Shine (1989.), Mother Love Bone's first EP

With the massive success of 1991 albums, Pearl Jam's 'Ten' and Nirvana's 'Nevermind', alternative grunge rock from Seattle ruled supreme. However, the reality was that this genre of music had been around for a great deal longer. One of these earlier bands was Mother Love Bone. Originally formed in 1988, the band consisted of guitarists Stone Gossard and Bruce Fairweather and bassist Jeff Ament, who had all previously been members of Green River, the original grunge styled band. Coupled with drummer Greg Gilmour and charismatic lead singer Andrew Wood, the band released its first EP, 'Shine' in early 1988 and then their first full album release, 'Apple' in 1990. This band, with all of their potential seemed destined for massive success. However tragically, a few days after the release of 'Apple', lead singer Andrew Wood fatally overdosed on heroin. Following this tragedy, the band couldn't carry on and folded. From the ashes of this band came Pearl Jam and with all of their and other band's successes, Mother Love Bone was all but forgotten. So how much of a lost masterpiece is this album?

The work by Mother Love Bone in their short-lived existance is phenominal. The fact that this band was only able to record one full length album is such a pity - they had everything in terms of style, musical genius and attitude. The bands sound is somewhere between that of glam styled 80's metal and that of 90's alternative rock; it's a unique fusion. As an important point though, it must be stressed that eventhough Pearl Jam came about from this band, both band's sound VERY VERY different.

Not to nitpick, but under the section of Edition Notes, it says NOT to buy Shine... Its all on compilation... not EVERYTHING. There's a hidden track on Shine that is one of my favorite MLB tracks because its SO bizzare... Its called "Zanzibar" and is mostly Andy Wood speaking in trippy little phrases and recollected conversations while the band kind of noodles with noise behind him... its at 4:08 on the "Capricorn Sister" track...

"Do you come to these bars very often? Zanzibar! And things like such... It was Thursday afternoon, I was Laughing, Joking, Drinking fruit juice, peppermint herbs, Cap'n Crunch, things like such... she stood six foot three, she looked down on me and asked What? What? What hurts?"

And thats just the intro... Given its a novelty, but any MLB fan or even an Andy fan needs to hear it at least once... its worth it, if only for the strangeness.

Just what I wanted. This masterpiede of 90's grunge music will be one of the most important pieces in every collection.

This is a good album, but I already have a 2cd set which has most of the songs on this cd. I will hold onto this for now. I found the 2cd set in a discount music store several years ago. I knew nothing about the band, but liked the music. I still listen to it from time to time.
