Pond - The Practice of Joy Before Death

Sub Pop [1995]

Most of the time I feel like I came to Portland 25 years too late...
Anyway, here is a little grunge-fueled alternative/indie shit to power your day... Or help you sit on the couch harder. This is their second album and (at the risk of sounding like a LOSER) I will openly admit that I like it more than their self-titled debut. It feels a little less alternative. Honestly, it sounds like they just listened to a lot more Dino Jr. then wrote an album, and I believe whole-heartedly that adding a bit of Dino Jr. to any band will make it better. Think about it...



  1. any chance you could re-up this? would be grateful.


    Done and done. Link fixed too.
