Mother Love Bone Albums Ranked

Mother Love Bone was an American rock band that formed in Seattle, Washington, in 1988. The band was active from 1988 to 1990. Frontman Andrew Wood’s personality and lyrics helped to catapult the group to the top of the burgeoning the late 1980s/early 1990s Seattle music scene. Wood died only days before the scheduled release of the band’s debut album, Apple, thus ending the group’s hopes of success. The album was finally released a few months later. As well as being influential to grunge, they are also considered early pioneers in the alternative metal genre. Here are all of Mother Love Bone albums ranked.

3. Shine (1989)

“As you can see, I can’t give this album enough praise – it’s like no other. I really wan’t to say it’s an album alongside that of grunge albums ‘Ten’, ‘Dirt’ and ‘Badmotorfinger’ but it’s just such a unique work it’s hard to compare to anything else. That aside, you can’t miss out on this album, it’s a classic and one that has become sadly forgotten and underrated.”

2. Mother Love Bone (1992)

“Mother Love Bone feels like a mash-up of Guns ‘n Roses and Temple of the Dog. This may sound odd, but it’s the most accurate description that came to mind. I love it, and I can see why their being cut short was so tragic. It would be interesting to have a band like this still around today.”

1. Apple (1990)

“Rock doesn’t get much better than this. The solo on “Stardog Champion” will blow your F***ing mind. “Capricorn Sister” is an all-time classic. “Man of Golden Words” and “Stargazer” show a deep emotional and spiritual side through Mellon collie. Mother Love Bone would’ve been the next Led Zeppelin but was never given the chance.
