The Meat Puppets were many, many things, all involving guitars -- grungers, cowpunks, plain old rock stars -- but they never got quite as experimental as they did on 'Mirage', their homage to all things psychedelic. Originally released back in 1987, the record is now being reissued by Wienerworld, with five extra goodies that range from early demos of classic songs to originals/covers.

9/10 Jack Customer review, 1st February 2015
I really cannot say enough good things about this album. I could go on and on, but I will be brief. While Up on the Sun and Meat Puppets II typically receive all of the critical accolades (and rightfully so), it is 1987's Mirage that is the hidden gem in the Meat Puppets discography. It manages to combine high-brow intellectualism with off-the-wall silliness. The song The Mighty Zero is a perfect example of this. The music is clever and the words even more so. Lyrical content is devoted to such things as nature, time, and math. Other standouts include Leaves, Confusion Fog, and I am a Machine.
