On the back cover, influential producer Jack Endino claims that the Thrown Ups "started the whole Seattle sound." That may be a stretch, but grunge definitely would not be as nasty without this project. Songs are irrelevant, titles like "Bucking Retards" and "Sloppy Pud Love" give you an idea of where this Seattle combo is coming from. It is grunge with the tunefulness taken out, on the complete other end of the spectrum from Pearl Jam, hovering close to early Melvins or the Fastbacks. Fans of the genre will enjoy, but it is not an album that stands up to repeated listens.
