Any Fans? I have all their stuff and I must say I'm not much for the '90s Grunge or Alternative but they are freakin' bad ass.

I had a copy of their s/t (or 'Blue Album' as it's known) at one point. It was a freebie radio promo copy that I got from work. I liked that song 'Gel', but don't recall much else from that album and ditched it. I think that one was their big seller, so it probably had some other hits on it.

Don't know much about them otherwise. Much of the 90's era grunge/alternative rock and metal that I listened to during that time has been ditched. Not that there was much to begin with. The only bands from that era that I still listen to with any consistancy is Stone Temple Pilots and Alice in Chains. Little bit of Soundgarden too. Playing Temple of the Dog as I'm typing this as a matter of fact.

Saw them live and they one me over, they even did a cover of 'Crazy Train' when I saw them.

I thought the first album 'Hints' was ok, but it was following that album, the self titled album that MG mentioned that I got into them, and bought next three or four albums they released.

I think Youth and Afterwords are their best.

I like their S/T I believe it is, they are one of my mother's favorite bands and I heard alot of them at one point. It's not completely my thing, but some of it is pretty rawkin'.

How do you feel about Youth, Shawn? That is my fave.

I thought Youth was pretty good, but in all honesty that one and Rabbit are the 2 I have heard the least...

One of those bands I was aware of at the time but never really investigated. As I get older my tastes continue to get more eclectic, so not sure how I'd react to them now.
