Background: Released in 1989, Blind Man’s Zoo was the fourth album by 10,000 Maniacs.
The album reached #13 on the U.S. album chart.
After the success of In My Tribe, it would be expected that hordes of bands would take a stab at the market with their own second-rate versions of the album — it’s disappointing that 10,000 Maniacs would be one of them, churning out not only In My Tribe, Pt. 2, but an inferior copy at that. It’s not that the album is bad — certainly they’ve perfected their sound, and in many cases, the songs are catchier this time out — but in handling the issues (there’s no shortage of them), Natalie Merchant has become more direct and obvious.
