Mudhoney - Blinding Sun
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.
