First Appeared in The Music Box, October 1995, Volume 2, #9
Written by John Metzger
Blind Melon is one of those bands that just seems to be misunderstood by everyone. Though it employs a strikingly different formula on its latest effort Soup, the album is as good, if not better, than the group's self-titled debut. This time around, Shannon Hoon and company add bits of Yes and Jethro Tull to its sound, and the result is nothing short of stupendous. Hoon continues to sing for a generation of lost souls in the sea of life, and he continues to do it well.
Soup is available from Barnes & Noble.
