We gave it an A

With a lineup of two-string slide bass, baritone sax, and drums, Morphine makes a seductively noirish noise unlike anything in contemporary rock. The riffy accessibility of Morphine’s three prior albums is downplayed, but unexpected touches like the eerie organ of ”Potion,” along with Mark Sandman’s smooth growl and sardonic wordplay, make Like Swimming exotically refreshing.
