Sleepless in Seattle: The Birth of Grunge

A-

Lamentable title aside, Sleepless in Seattle: The Birth of Grunge‘s compilation of unruly Northwestern hard rock of the ’80s and ’90s is a valuable reminder that Seattle gave us more than Nirvana. Early cuts from Screaming Trees and Green River have lost none of their wallop; half-forgotten acts, from Love Battery to Mr. Epp and the Calculations (the droll club-crawling parody ”Mohawk Man”), never sounded so good. By the album’s end, the music grows slicker and more conventional — but that, alas, was part of the story too.
