"Dyslexicon" (Sony; 1995)

Reviewed by Jeff Rogers

After listening to Dandelion's "Dyslexicon" a few times I could not separate this band's sound from Nirvana’s. Sometimes, they sound exactly alike, although Dandelion does have a heavier guitar section that might cast a few hooks into the Alice In Chains pond. 

For the most part, if you got a little tired of Nirvana, these guys won't do much for you either. The music also sounds a little like Mudhoney every now and then, but that’s only because of the somber sound of requiem.

While the grunge bus was leaving the parking lot these guys apparently couldn’t scrape enough gas money together and thus arrived late to the show. I applaud their effort but only with one hand -- a golf clap, if you will. This was their last commercial release.

The only song worth ripping is “Weird-Out.”

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
