Blind Melon is the number-one underappreciated band of the 1990s. It is a crime that the Bee Girl from the "No Rain" video is the image most think of when asked about Blind Melon. The truth is, this band was one of the most talented of their generation; nowhere else is this evidenced as well as on Soup, the band's 2nd full length album. The band trades in some jam elements from their debut in favor of concise, well written songs that act as a perfect representation of what this band was capable of. Unfortunately, Shannon Hoon's death left us to only imagine what could have come next.
Soup is opened with an offbeat horn and vocal intro that segues into the outstanding "Galaxie". This song is fast paced but with melodies to die for. Another highlight is "Vernie", a touching tribute to Shannon Hoon's grandmother set to a mellow, almost psychadelic musical backdrop. "Toes Across the Floor" is probably my favorite song from Soup, if not my favorite Blind Melon song of all time. Dark, brooding verses explode into a screaming chorus that perfectly represents the hopelessness of Hoon's addictions. "St. Andrew's Fall" is another benchmark in quality and it's probably the most complicated Blind Melon song, consisting of three very distinct sections that stir up many emotions, good and bad. "New Life" is the album's most heart-wrenching song, with Shannon singing the line "when I'm looking into the eyes of our own baby will it bring new life into me?". Shannon was a great person, someone hopelessly addicted. He wanted badly to be a father, but the grip of addiction was too strong and he is missed.

Not only is this one of the best albums I have ever heard but there exists a VERY hidden track on it. This doesn't seem to work on my computer's CD-ROM drive or my new CD player so you may need to find someone with an older player but it is very much worth it. Put the disk in and press play. As the first track starts to play press and hold down the rewind button. If you have a clock that counts backwards stop around -2:09 (or on my old player it jumped to the start of track one). They have the music from one of the tracks playing forwards but the vocals are playing in reverse. It seems that the new players are 'smarter' and know not to read before the begining of the disk. If you don't believe me or it doesn't work just look at the shiney side of your disk. The first track is located on the outside edge. If you look closely you can see a ring of no data. Enjoy.

"Soup" is the type of record that's both an exhilarating and disturbing listen. It starts out harmless enough with the rocking "Galaxy," a song that proves Blind Melon has a talent for writing catchy riffs and down-to-earth lyrics. When I say harmless, I mean this sugary sweet morsel of pop evokes memories of driving with the top down en route to no particular destination. However, the album grows more solemn with tunes like Vernie, San Andreas Fault, Mouthful of Cavities, and The Duke. Each song is a beautiful blend of Shannon Hoon's unique croon, which seems too gentle and sympathetic for one plagued by so many inner demons, and the band's ability to provide the ideal mood with visceral instrumentation that is both genuine and complex in its simplicity.
This is not an easy first listen. Blind Melon's pop sensibility flows throughout the album, but they are more subtle and buried deeper than those found on their first, self-titled record. There is "No Rain" to be found in this collection, but there are several songs that will evoke wonder and amazement. The final number, "Lemonade," is strange in that it seems to break from the theme of the other songs and sound more like "Galaxy," the album's first song. Both have a high energy, optimistic quality about them that encourages you to think, "Hey, these are fun songs. These guys aren't all moody and gloomy. They have a sunny side." Perhaps, that's the illusion they hoped to create. On the outside (the first and last song) everything seemed fine and dandy. But inside (songs 2-13) festers feelings of self-deprecation, disdain, and sorrow. Just like the band itself, "Soup" is pretty on the outside but tortured, albeit beautiful, on the inside.

Well, I have to start off by saying that I was never a huge fan of Blind Melon, but after seeing their Behind the Music on VHI, I was hooked. I went to NRM to buy Blind Melon and they only had one copy left and nothing else. So I went on line to get Soup and Nico. I am addicted to Soup. I think it is one of the best cd's I have ever heard. Shannon's voice is so amazing and the music....where to begin? I couldn't even narrow one song down as my favorite. "Skinned", "Car Seat, God's Presence" and "Galaxie" have go to be my favorites. The one that makes me sad is "New Life" about Shannon finding out that he was going to be a father and how excited and scared that he was. No song sounds like the next and everyone has it's own destinctive sound and vibe to it. To qoute Shannon: "I find myself singing the same songs everyday" that is exactly how I feel about this cd. I listed to it all the time and I don't think that I will ever get sick of it. So if you are a Blind Melon fan or if you are not, I would suggest getting all three of their cd's and just listen. The lyrics and the music is all that matters and trust me, once you listen to any one of their cd's you too will be hooked.
