Get great Credit!
John A. Plait | San Buenaventura, California United States | 08/30/2002

"Having lived my formative years in the Twin Cities, this recording represents (to me) the pinnacle of the Suburbs.
Although containing some of the band's darker songs it also contains many of their funniest lyrics and lovable songs. Starting with "Tired of My Plans", the band moves through the tongue-in-cheek sadomasochistic "Tape My Wife to the Ceiling", the somewhat disturbing "Ghoul of Goodwill", into the bar fight song "Dish It Up" followed by a hilarious "Mommy". Late in a show seeing Beej disappear from stage only to be found standing in a corner atop tri-stacked speakers as the band would brake into a rousing "Drinking with an Angel" was definitely something to behold. By the time "Spring Came", "Credit In Heaven", and the all-time classic "Music for Boys" were played the band would have the audience dancing uncontrollably and eating out of their hand. This recording, and all the songs here-in relives a glorious moment in the Minneapolis Scene's great history and indeed all of Rock and Roll."

"nobody else has reviewed this! astonishing. this 1981 release is one of the most pleasing post-punk releases that i know of. i would say that it is one of my 25 favorite recordings of the whole 80's decade. and i will say it: it is one of my 25 favorite recordings of the whole 80's decade. everything here is marvelous. great, quirky songs, with creative rhythmic shifts that are a constant delight. the bass and piano and guitar and drumming are all equally important to this music, and each instrument is played with a freshness and individuality that make the suburbs sound quite like no one else: a totally unique sound that is also completely accessible and enjoyable. this is a pop/rock classic."
Revisit the burbs of your youth

"You know how you remember something fondly from an era in your life and then you go revisit it and it is rather disappointing? Your memory glamorized it and the reality isn't that good. Well this is not one of those moments.
If you danced your brains out to the 'burbs back in the 80's this brings all that back and then some...It still sounds as fantastic as it did then. It got me pogoing around the house making my kids thinking they may have to call the men in the white coats. Thankfully I didn't throw my back this you won't be disappointed. These guys definitley stand the test of time!"
