8/10 Stephen Customer review, 8th August 2017
"Sweet Oblivion" was the second of three major label albums for Screaming Trees. It was released at the height of the grunge boom in 1992. The first single from the album, and arguably the band's best song, "Nearly Lost You" was featured on the soundtrack to the Cameron Crowe film "Singles" which celebrated the Seattle music scene.
"Sweet Oblivion" doesn't quite hit the heights of their final and best album "Dust" but it comes quite close. The sludgy, Neil Young-esque "More or Less", the blistering rock of "For Celebrations Past" and the catchy "Butterfly" are particular highlights. The album also includes their other relatively big hit, "Dollar Bill".
For me, this album is a bit of classic.
