Album of the Day
If ever a band was in the right place at the right time, it was Candlebox; formed in 1990 in Seattle, the quartet rose with the city's grunge scene and was signed to Madonna's Maverick Records. CANDLEBOX became the label's first big success, eventually selling more than 4 million copies in the U.S. alone. Singles “Far Behind,” “You” and “Cover Me” all reached Billboard's Mainstream Rock Top 10, but every one of these 11 originals is pretty solid, with an intense but accessible attack led by frontman Kevin Martin. The band's finest hour, CANDLEBOX was released 25 years ago today, and still burns bright.
