Among the many parasites of Seattle's grunge, Candlebox were the most
A singer, Kevin Martin (a Texas native who moved to Seattle in 1985),
whose dire, whiny baritone can't decide which grunge singer to ape,
Peter Klett's inept guitar riffs
and one of the most predictable rhythm sections ever
made Stone Temple Pilots sound like Beethoven.
Nonetheless, Candlebox (Maverick, 1993) the album sold truckloads of
copies as did the singles Change and You.
The even more dreadful and sterile Lucy (Maverick, 1995) is hardly
a collection of songs, as Butterfly and Best Friends and the
likes are mere cliches. The band clearly can't write music (the singer can't
write lyrics either).
Happy Pills (Maverick, 1998) is so unbelievably dull that the two
previous albums sound almost musical.
