Under A Billion Suns
Label: Sub Pop Records
Suns kicks off with "Where Is the Future," a sidesplitter complaining about the un-sci-fi present. Singer Mark Arm howls, "I wanna drive in a bubble car/I wanna fly with my personal jet-pack/I wanna visit my family on Mars." The rest of the album finds Mudhoney's grungy roots maturing, with a tight horn sections and crunchy songs that rail against Republicans.
