Very listenable except for one song with snoring sounds in the middle. Sound is more late 90s indie, although can hear more classic early 90s seattle grunge too.

I had never heard of this album or band before this, but was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed listening. Big fan of the guitar work on this record - there's something magical about fuzzy sounding guitars. Lowkey inspiring me to whip out my electric again and mess around with my effect pedals. The guitar is definitely what stood out to me the most and what I enjoyed the most, but I also liked the vocals. Album was chaotic in a way that I thoroughly enjoyed. Might check out more by this band!

Not being very familiar with the genre, I find it hard to review classic grunge in any other way than through the lens set up by Nirvana. In a direct comparison, Mudhoney lack Nirvana's catchy choruses and Kurt's iconic delivery thereof. Nonetheless, I enjoyed this one a lot more than I thought I would. It has some pretty good hooks and isn't too chaotic and certainly not mindless (my usual complaints regarding grunge and punk-inspired genres in general). The album length was perfect too, as I stayed engaged throughout. Good album.

They get labeled as grunge because they're a Seattle band using heavy distortion in 1991, but there are more punk elements here than anything: an abundance of two-minute songs, shouty repetitive choruses, a lead singer who can't carry a tune, and purposefully mediocre production quality (because using low quality tape totally owned those studios, man). I vacillated between being impressed by the balls on these guys and annoyed by this album's existence, which was probably the point. Best track: Good Enough

One of my favorite bands... hell, at times they are my absolute favorite. Great band to see live. This is a classic in my book, just got the 30th anniversary version of this on vinyl. Glad to see it here on the list. These guys are still cranking out great stuff. I'd argue their last 3 records (The Lucky Ones, Vanishing Point, Digital Garbage) are as good as (and maybe better than) anything they've ever put out. Check them out too.

This record by fuzz-propelled garage grunge anti-stars from the Washington State area doesn't have the all-time hits the band are still known for today (such as "Touch Me, I'm Sick" or "Suck You Dry"). But overall, it's the most cohesive and convincing entry from their early output. Buy either this or a compilation from them (or better, buy both--there's only *one* compilation out there anyway). Number of albums left to review or just listen to:  more than 900, I've temporarily lost count here Number of albums from the list I find relevant enough to be mandatory listens:  approximately a half so far  Albums from the list I *might* include in mine later on: a quarter (including this one) Albums from the list I will certainly *not* include in mine (many others are more important): the last quarter

90’s grunge but with a 60’s rock spirit. Some tracks sound like something The Doors might have done if The Doors formed thirty years later than they did. “Generation Genocide” has a psychedelic feel and “Something So Clear” could almost be a grunge-ified “Break On Through (To the Other Side).” Hearing harmonica on a few songs was a surprise! The album has a fiery punk energy and strong songwriting. An excellent album overall.

This is so quintessentially grunge I could practically feel my clothes turning plaid as I listened. I was very into the whole grunge thing at the time, and hearing this now is both nostalgic and yet also feels rather cliched. Once you put aside that it isn't a parody, it came before the cliche, then it's all quite enjoyable.

Heavvvyyy 90s fuzz-rock with some pretty good hooks. It's like if the Eels were more angry than sad and feels very much like the early 90s while somehow riding the wave of more modern (2010s) sound that makes it relatively timeless. Still, it's not entirely my style

Very Garage-y aesthetic. Let It Slide is good. The low recording quality makes all of the songs sound exactly the same. Shoot The Moon is more my speed, but Move Out was good too. The harmonica does a lot to add something bright and cutting with everything else being fuzzed out, like in Pokin' Around.

I haven't listened to Mudhoney before. They are somewhat similar to some of the grunge bands I have listened to, with stronger punk influences. I liked it well enough, and there was some good playing going on, but it never really grabbed me. I liked the guitar solo in “Thorn”. “Fuzzgun ‘91” would be great for a grunge beach movie. “Pokin’ Around” was my favorite song - the harmonica was a welcome addition. I don't know if I would have liked this album more if I had listened to it when it was released. Today, I didn’t mind listening to EVERY GOOD BOY DESERVES FUDGE, but I can't say I'm very motivated to do so again.

As a Seattle-ite, I'm glad I've now listened to a Mudhoney album. I was solidly...whelmed. I didn't want to leave the room because of it or anything but I'm not in a big rush to listen again. I did listen to it twice: once on headphones, mostly just paying attention to the music, and again on speakers while doing other things. I liked it better the second time. As my sole focus, there wasn't much there that caught my interest, nothing particularly unusual or catchy or moving. But while I was doing other things (making breakfast, answering emails), I found myself bopping around a bit to it. That's gonna elevate it from a 2 to a 3 for me. Thanks, though, Mudhoney for saving Sub Pop.

I'm not sure "charming" is the adjective that comes to mind with this album, but it does have an exuberant, fun garage band feel without ever becoming unlistenable. I like the fast, edgy "Thorn." Not too many songs stand out for me, though. I was going to remark that the lyrics as a whole were pretty bland, but then I got to the verse about "Driving reckless in your Pinto/full tank of gas" which made me smile real big, but I didn't find many other moments like that. I liked the look into early Seattle grunge. I liked it more than I thought I would (and probably more than I would have in 1991). I didn't like it enough to listen to 15 bonus tracks.

Il fatto che sia uscito il giorno prima che nascessi potrebbe aumentare il suo voto finale. Un sound che sembra il punto di incontro tra punk rock e grunge.

This is an interesting one to come back to after many years. I bought this album when I was young, but it didn't make much of an impact on my, and I didn't listen to it all that much. I think now that some of the reason that I didn't immediately like this album is that the vocals aren't mixed very well. They always feel like they're fading into the background a bit, and that leaves nothing out in front leading the band. I think a remastered version of this album could be really cool. As it is, there's certainly a lot of promise here, but it doesn't quite follow through 3/5

Punk but the guitar gets a considerable exposure to spotlight. And I guess that's how grunge is born. Those "grungy" tracks are the best in the album, "Generation Genocide", "Thorns", and "Broken Hands". The rest are, to be honest, just mediocre punk.

To the same extent that I liked the first Mudhoney I received on this list, I "disliked" this one. It's not bad, but while "Superfuzz Bigmuff" is raw and authentic, "Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge" sounds generic and expected as any 90s grunge. Maybe it's just my mood listening to it today or the not-so-good recording quality, but it's not the best from Mudhoney. It's still worth listening to this album, but it's forgettable.

Would anyone even know this album (or band) existed if Kurt Cobain didn't sing its praises? It's a fair question. Nirvana, and especially Cobain, were such a huge curiosity when they broke big that the music press went out of their way to find out what made Cobain tick to the point that any artist he cited as an inspiration were then equally dissected. If Nirvana are the Beatles of grunge, then Mudhoney is the genre's Bill Haley. Mudhoney's debut EP became popularly known as the starting point of grunge, but that one is a tough listen. Like the Beatles, Nirvana's music still seems timeless, where this album sounds exactly like 1991 or '92. That's not a bug as much as it is a feature. Every genre needs its very own Big Bang moment, and Mudhoney was at the very least the spark that ignited Nirvana's bang.

It is a grunge album, but it is not overpowering. I did not skip any of the songs. The music itself is good and it doesn't get annoying. The lyrics are just there. The dial did not move much on this album.

Mitä saa kun laittaa Nirvanan, Lynyrd Skynyrdin ja Bad Religionin tehosekottimeen? Mudhoney ei ole oikea vastaus. Perushyvä levy.

Pretty straightforward grungy rock album. Even though it definitely has an indie feel to it I am really let down by the production. It sounds so weak and flat. I felt that in the intro track and was hoping that it was just the intro track being a bit of an appetizer for the rest of the album, but as soon as I heard the second song I felt kind of "meh". Everything was kind of middling and average? I didn't love it.

Grunge punk with a kind of slightly lo-fi Dinosaur Jr feel. Not really enough hooks to grab me. A low three

Starts of quite well, but turns kinda flat after that. "Let It Slide" (track 2) and "Something So Clear" (track 4) were the highlights for me. I like this type of music so I didn't feel the need to skip any tracks. A forgettable 3.

I've never been into grunge, but I can appreciate some of the influences on the members of Mudhoney, like the Stooges' Iggy Pop. Unfortunately, this evolution of punk on this record isn't that impressive. It's not humorous, energetic and doesn't make me feel much. Rating 2/5

Not a big grunge fan but I can see where this album would have been influential on the grunge scene. Has a bit of 60s garage feel and feels like a bridge between that and later Grunge scene. Do like Good Enough and a few of the slower grooves.

You can hear the influences: Iggy Pop, a bit of Sabbath, garage, punk and so forth. But the deliberately muddy lo-fi production is probably more of a hindrance than a help. I enjoyed parts of this, but found it to be a bit of slog overall.

Stort plus för albumets omslag, den var ju riktigt fräsig. När det gäller musiken blir det ganska ofta lite för skrikigt och ett snäpp för flippat. Jag märkte dock under lyssningens gång att dom hade en del fina riffs som lyfte låtarna något. Bäst: "Broken hands"

I wrote this whole thing about how this is just another below average grunge band from the 90s. Honestly, I don't have the energy. This is fine. It's better than Pearl Jam, but that is an incredibly low bar. Some of the songs are fine, but I really just don't care for it. Highlight: 6.

It started off fine. It got noisy and unbearable at times in the middle but got better towards the end. I feel like this album lacks a bit of identity. Its genre is listed as grunge, but it doesn't feel like grunge sometimes. I wasn't expecting a harmonica to be featured, but it was and it kinda slapped, all things considered. But again, not really grunge at points. Favorite track: Pokin' Around

Works best when it explores the fray between indie arrangements and grungier instrumentation, unfortunately leans too hard into the latter on most tracks and becomes a bit homogenous and unremarkable throughout

I love grunge but Mudhoney is at the crappy end of it imo. Yeah I know they were practically the first grunge band, but they lean too heavily into the alternative art rock DIY garage band stuff where I prefer my grunge to sound like AIC and Soundgarden. I've heard this album a few times, it kinda just exists. It's not horrible, but it's not actually good and I wouldn't listen to it for fun. Seems to be propelled by reputation alone. 2/5.

Sounds like yet another punk rock simplistic power chords and screaming record. I want to see the merit in this kind of music, but I just don’t. 2 stars cause it at least has some point to it, I just don’t see anything that stands out or is that significant whatsoever. I can play power chords and scream about my tortured soul too, why aren’t I on the list?

Lots of energy. I would guess that they’d put on a rambunctious live show. For just listening, I was not all that captivated though.

In de 90's was ik enorm fan van zo'n beetje alles wat met Seattle en 'grunge' te make had. En ik wilde Mudhoney ook altijd tof vinden. Maar elke keer als ik eran begon kwam ik weer tot de conclusie dat het niet mijn ding was. En zo ook nu weer. Muziekaal wat onrustig en rommelig maar nog wel te doen. Maar dat zeikerige gesnerp van Mark Arm verpest het echt volledig.

I love metal but somehow I just can’t get into most grunge. Grunge is like metal but with less talent and more whining. I was pretty bored with this one. I can see how it would be a classic for diehard grunge fans though. My favorite part was the drums, they were great throughout

Olipas tämä erilaista kuin odotin. Kuvittelin että Mudhoney on jotain 1990-luvun pomppuheavya/nu-metallia mutta se taisikin olla Mudvayne. Vaikka genre olikin jonkinlainen positiivinen yllätys, ei levy silti herätä suuria hurraahuutoja. Aika tylsää rokkiräimettä nuhaisilla soundeilla. Kappaleista ei parilla kuuntelulla jäänyt yksikään positiivisesti mieleen. Ei kyllä myöskään negatiivisesti. Jotain vastaavaa tässä on kuin aiemmin listalla olleessa Modern Loversin levyssä, mutta taso ei yllä lähellekään samaa. Kakkonen hennolla plussalla.

Nie sadzilem, ze kolejny albumik od tej bandy sie pojawi, a jednak jest ich drugi studyjny krazek, rownie podziemny i lofikowy jak pierwszy, every good boy deserves fudge z 91, nadal jest to grungowe granie z humorkiem, sklad sie nie zminil, wiec muzycznie plyta przypomina to co bylo na superfuzzie, tylko ze jest troche wiecej materialu, bo az 42 minuty na 14 trakach, nie tylko instrumentalnie, ale i lirycznie nadal jest to to samo, czyli utwory dziwnie luzne, mocno sarkastyczne na tematy przerozne, na plejke leci good enough i into the drink

I believe this is our second from Mudhoney, another fuzzy, grungy rock album. Again, similar to the Sonic Youth album we just had, I just don't feel in the mood for this kind of music. It ran together and not much stood out. I think I enjoyed the previous album more, but yeah. Not much here for me. Favorite tracks: Thorn, Broken Hands. Album art: Cute? It's a very child-like drawing, but note the NAKED WOMAN in front of the boat! I do like this one though, fun style and coloring. The title is also an obvious reference to those sheet music lines. I wonder if an actual kid drew this? 2/5

Mudhoney fut longtemps une de mes plus grandes fiertés dans le grand quizz du générateur. En effet, je les reconnaissais à chaque fois, sans trop comprendre pourquoi. Passé le temps de cette satisfaction, la présence d'un second album de leur part n'etait absolument pas nécessaire.
