"Wonderful writing. Who else could write a song like 'Got You Down' from the point of view of the husband of a woman who is playing around on him, the husband sharing his insights into the man she's playing around with, speaking almost out of pity for the wife and knowing how he is untrustworthy. Amazing song. Then there's 'Boring enormous' another song that I can't think of anyone else who could write it, an understanding of how we can become boring, said in the medium of rock no roll! And what about Baby Learns To Crawl. Incredible songwriting. I challenge anyone to point out anything substantially greater than this by The Replacements. I've never heard another song about a child growing up writen so intelligently and provocatively. Every track on Stereo is an excellent song!
