Are there any Screaming Trees fans out there? I don't hear much about them on the board.

If you do like them, name your favorite song and album.

I would say "All I Know" for the song, "Dust" for the album. :D

    Cant go wrong with Shadow of the Season, IMO.

    IMO, easily the most underrated band of the 90s. Just as talented as PJ, SG, AIC, etc. Lanegan is one of my all time fav singers. I have pretty much everything they ever made, whether commercial or unreleased material. :)

    Glad to see a few fellow ST fans on here.

    i think lanegan has proved a more versatile/creative musician outside of ST

    he is always a great fit on QOTSA stuff... that darker mood just fits him better than the poppiness of ST

    but i still love them!

    gotta love "dying days" (with mikey), "alice said", "troubled times", and "dollar bill"

    i cant wait for what this guy does next!

    Love them, Mark Lanegan is the perfect live singer. So luck to have seen him twice this year already and 2/3 more to come!!!

    I agree the darker moods fit him better but I think his work with ST is actually a great example of how versatile he is. Yes they were more of a pop band but if you listen to sweet oblivion and then listen to Whiskey for the Holy Ghost, the style difference is incredible. I guess the same goes for listening to some of the earlier Trees records vs the later ones too. I think this is one of the reasons I never get sick of listening to Lanegan. There is a Lanegan project for every single one of my moods! :mrgreen:

    I'm glad he's as busy as he is

    Favorite song would be "Troubled Times" for sure.

    My first ST album was the SST Records Anthology which is really Doors'y I think and Sweet Oblivion is my favourite of the later albums. The Secret Kind is really intense and I Nearly Lost You is so anthemic. Would love to see a reunion but ML seems to have too many other projects for that to happen. Not complaining though because everything he does is high quality!! My favourite ML performance is the ST's cover of Peace In The Valley which was on the b-side to Dollar Bill.

    Dust is such an amazing album.

    could listen to "all I know" all day long"

    really like "dying days" and "time traveler" alot too. My 3 faves off the album.

    Def one of my favs as well; right up there with Grey Diamond Desert. It would be sweet if we could get proper remasters of all the ST albums, especially the earlier ones 8-)

    Dust is an absolutely perfect album in every sense of the word, not a duff song on there. My favourite is probably Look At You or Sworn & Broken.

    In the late 90's I had a tickets to see Screaming Trees in a tiny venue in Reading England. I wasn't able to go and its one of the biggest live music regrets of my life. Strangely I still haven't managed to see Mark Lanagen live either... damn and thrice damn!

    Gotta love Screaming Trees! (and anything else ML does!) My favourite track is probably 'Shadow of the Season' but 'Dollar Bill' is a close second. ML has been playing an awesome version of 'Where The Twain Shall Meet' on his solo tour as well

    I first heard them when Nearly Lost You was on the 'Singles' soundtrack I think - another example of how great that cd is.

    what’s not to love great band wish i had, had the chance to have seen them live, songs like sworn and broken, dollar bill, winter song and the epic no one knows are all pieces of brilliance, going to listen to them now, "All the while you've been sleeping drifting on a wind never blown tomorrow you'll wake up aching wondering how, when no one really knows"

    I have been saying for a while now, this is the next band that really needs to try and reunite.

    I'm kind of surprised someone hasn't mentioned More or Less. That's always been one of my favorite Trees songs.

    ALL OF IT

    start with bubblegum i guess... the rest of his solo stuff kind of sounds the same (in a good way)... and then get the 2 gutter twins albums... and the 2 with isobell campbell... and everything he has done with QOTSA... and then from there you can dig around for smaller collaborations

    the guy is incredibly busy... THANK GOD :D

    I love the Screaming Trees...out of all the bands of that ilk they're the only ones my husband really likes...it has led on to a lengthy collection of all things Lanegan related...the man can't put a foot wrong as far as music goes as far as I'm concerned...his voice is just amazing...you can "feel" it as well as hear it.
    It makes much more sense to live in the present tense

    Dust is a great album and features Mr McCready on a track. I also dig Sweet Obilivon. Great band and worth checking out. I know a few of their early releases are being released on Vinyl soon too. 8-)
  • Options
    I would like to see remasters of their whole catalog.

    It would really be sweet to see a Deluxe Edition of Dust packed with all sorts of goodies and such.

    Hint, hint ;)

    Unlikely, though, since the album is officially out of print.

    "Gonna go to that deep river" :) Great tune. Their cover of Tim Rose's Morning Dew is great too. Strangely enough, 'Caught Between' came across my iPod this morning on the way into work. Song rocks
