"Songs like "Behind The Garage", "Anytime You Want" (is it just me, or is this song structurally, and the end of "Stove" tonally, kinda nodding towards My Bloody Valentine, albeit not in an onpurposeseeming way at all?), "My Room", "Allergic To Love", and, well, the whole dang thing, for me, at least, especially after all this time, now serve as what Rick so well elucidated once in an old interview as "postcards or diaries, in song"...or some other such paraphrase...anyways, i wouldn't have wrote anything here if anyone else had've written anything at all, but this record really changed many rock'n'roll kids that i knew, myself included...it made us want to chronicle our lives that openly too, maybe...idunno; i'll always think of "Love Tara" as the album that made me really believe in the D.I.Y. aesthetic that seems to get ingrained into each successive generation of punk rockers by a different special album...me and my early-teen friends at the time seemed to be inspired to buy our guitars through "Nevermind" and "Goo", but inspired to actually _write songs_ through befriending these tracks...Tascam and Fostex's Canadian divisions should've given the band a cut of their increased profits during these years, in a just world, at least... ;)"
Summer before college

"Eric's Trip Love Tara is one of my all time favorite CDs. It simultaneously triggers nostalgia for the summer before college in 1991 and explosively emotional and experimental college years up to 1996. For me their music captured the zeitgeist. I could listen to Love Tara every day and not get sick of it."
