Blind Melon is the eponymous debut album by acclaimed Rock band Blind Melon,
released in 1992, featuring breakthrough single ''No Rain''. Fronted by singer
Shannon Hoon (who can be heard doing backing vocals on Guns N Roses' Use Your
Illusion I and II) Blind Melon had a distinctive sound, influenced by Southern
Rock and Psychedelic Rock. Songs like ''Soak The Sin'' and ''Tones Of Home''
evoke Hard Rock with a funky sound; ''Time'' resembles Grateful Dead-style
improvisational music and acoustic songs like ''Change'' and ''No Rain'' hinted
at Pop and Folk influences.
The band recorded the bulk of the album with producer Rick Parashar (who had
produced Pearl Jam's Ten) at London Bridge Studio in Seattle, Washington. Blind
Melon's production is marked by the use of outdated amplifiers and other
antiquated studio technology. Modern studio effects were not used in its
production as the band wanted to create a pure and intimate sounding record.
"Managing to be equally mellow and introspective as well as rough and
rocking, Blind Melon's 1992 self-titled debut remains one of the purest sounding
rock albums of its era, completely devoid of '90s production tricks." -Greg
