MORPHINE - CURE FOR PAIN (1993)

CUTTING EDGE INDIE ALBUM FROM THE 90'S
ARTIST`````MORPHINE
ALBUM`````
CURE FOR PAIN
GENRE`````ALTERNATIVE
ROCK-POP
YEAR````````1993


ALBUM REVIEW (by Greg Prato):
With their cult following growing, Morphine expanded their audience even further with their exceptional 1994 sophomore effort, Cure for Pain. Whereas their debut, Good, was intriguing yet not entirely consistent, Cure for Pain more than delivered. The songwriting was stronger and more succinct this time around, while new drummer Billy Conway made his recording debut with the trio (replacing Jerome Deupree). Like the debut, most of the material shifts between depressed and upbeat, with a few cacophonic rockers thrown in between. Such selections as "Buena," "I'm Free Now," "All Wrong," "Candy," "Thursday," "In Spite of Me" (one of the few tracks to contain six-string guitar), "Let's Take a Trip Together," "Sheila," and the title track are all certifiable Morphine classics. And again, Mark Sandman's two-string slide bass and Dana Colley's sax work help create impressive atmospherics throughout the album. Cure for Pain was unquestionably one of the best and most cutting-edge rock releases of the '90s.

Let me tell you guys something. This is one of the bands of my life! i first got to know them in 95 with the album "Yes" (which followed "Cure for Pain") In the same year I had the opportunity of seeing them live in portugal (where i lived most of my life) in what was the first ever rock festival for me and un unbelievable experience. I saw them live again 3 years after that. Sadly 2 days after their last concert in portugal (i think it was in 2000 or so Mark sandman overdosed with some cheap (or too pure) heroin he bought in the streets of lisbon!
A great loss for music, but a band that lives on!

I discovered Morphine around the time they released Cure for Pain. I have Good, Cure for Pain, Yes, Like Swimming, and The Night. They made lots of great music.
