Uncle Anesthesia by Screaming Trees
Released: Jan 1991
Label: Epic
Sweet Oblivion cemented Screaming Trees' reputation as modern-day longhairs grooving on 1970s hard rock. Its predecessor, in contrast, is rooted in late-1980s alternative rock. Mark Lanegan, brooding and guttural, still sounds like the second coming of the great Jim Morrison, but behind him the band goes for a Loop-inspired shoegaze aesthetic. As the narcotic title and Alice in Wonderland-meets-Ghoulies cover art suggest, Uncle Anesthesia is a profoundly psychedelic listen; listeners' ears are forced to navigate a swirling ocean of reverb, droning riffage and gloriously decayed wah-wah.
