For the Meat Puppets, it's unfortunate that Too High to Die was more than just the title of an album. The band's rampant drug use—plus the drug use of those around them, and all the street cred that surely must come when a member is capped by a post office security guard—acted as a distraction from an underappreciated discography that stretches for nearly three decades. A preview like this can never quite do them justice, but their first three recordings are essential. While 2009's Sewn Together was an adequate return to form (of sorts) for the Brothers Kirkwood, this year's Lollipop captures a band that has finally grown comfortable in its weathered skin.
