Mudhoney - Blinding Sun

This is a promo release of Mudhoney's second big label single, and is from the Piece of Cake album. The album title apparently refers to how easy it all seemed, and they didn't exactly take their big label debut all that seriously, admitting that the album was "Half-baked".

It was the beginning of a long, slow decline phase for a once great band. The album lacked the attitude of the early singles and the consistency of "Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge" and they slowly slipped into irrelevance. Kind of like Nomar after the wrist injury.

"Blinding Sun" is at least one of the more well-baked songs on the album, and was a solid choice for a single release. "King Sandbox" plays on the "piece of cake" theme in the lyrics, and also comes across as one of the more half-baked efforts.
