Seaweed - Four LP

A couple of months ago I was talking about how I was revisiting a few bands from the 90s that didn't do it for me at the time. The thought was that as I have gotten older, my taste in music has matured a bit. Well, I picked up Spanaway by Seaweed (on kick ass green vinyl - www.ibuywaytoomanyrecords.com/2011/12/seaweed-spanaway-li...) and enjoyed it. I wasn't blown out of the water, but I thought it was a pretty good record and made a mental note to keep my eyes open for other Seaweed records. I happened across Four at a good price, so I grabbed it.

I can say without question, I dropped the ball on this band. Four is outstanding. Huge thick guitars. Impassioned vocals. Surprisingly big hooks. What a record. Maybe a bit heavier than I typically like my bands, but this record is still perfect in every sense of the word. My eyes are wide open now, and my quest to pick up more Seaweed records will be pursued with much more vigor going forward.
