How can this be overheared...well? How?

"I feel bad always thinking about bands that are in fact great, empowering, creative, and in fact easy to listen to just being completly overheared. Meat Puppets and king's X and even more; Polaris are a perfect example, BUT ESPECIALLY THE DROP NINETEENS!
I got into the Drop Nineteens luckily enough by exploring the music realms of Pete and Pete (the greatest show for the early alternative kid), and I just stumbled across this band after not finding hardly any of the other bands listed on the playing lists after each episode. The first album Delaware was great, it made me want more, it was like more alternative hard rock shoegazer, more of a rockish My bloody valentine (and I love MBV...well...I love loveless) but the second album...wow! like a combination of the vines (an "ok" band) and Talkshow (very good) mended into a much better band than both! I mean the voals are high and piercing and melodic! This type of music is very sentimental! "The dead" is just a wonderful track that reminds me of the careless days of childhood, only way more profound than most songs manage! The rest of the tracks are enthralling as well, track 2, 4, 8, 13 to emphasize a few. The music is just so simple and unique and that is so hard to find, Perfect pop beats for the careful ear! I don't think it's groundbreaking, but it's good, good enough to be popular, but it isn't! Why?"
Easily among the top 100 best records of the 90s.
