Not for everyone
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Look, you either get this album or you don't. People who rate this album low don't get it - and consequently they don't understand what made the 'Mats a great band in the first place. To me, owning only the major label Replacements albums is like reading half of a novel. It's raw and unpolished - yeah, the sound quality is lacking, obviously - the 'Mats were 4 kids from Minneapolis on a small-time label back then. I wouldn't change a thing - consider it a timepiece, an artifact of an era. Great stuff."

"Paul W amd John Cusak nailed eighties angst. The tie in you say?
Well, today I saw 'Say Anything' for the first time in a long time, and if you listen closely about halfway through "Within your reach" is playing on the radio. And then, to drive it home at the end of the movie, when our hero is about leave the U.S. with his true love, the song is on the radio and as he splits the apartment he blasts the volume. A truly pivital moment in eighties cinema.
Westerberg and the Mats captured that wanting goofball in music the way Cusak did it in film. Oh, yeah, YOU MUST OWN THIS DISC!!!"

"The red-headed stepchild of replacement albums. Ever wish you could be sitting in a basement drinking a beer and listening to the best rock and roll band in America? Well you can. To me this album captures the mats with their guard down. This album was just a joke, "label wants a hit, and we don't give a shit", right? Just imagine Westerberg coming into the studio with "hospital" and Bob letting loose with the riffs, probably recorded in one take. Tommy's comments after "Treatment Bound" The kid was 15 years old for chrissake! Chris Mars lead on "hootenanny" is a small hint of his enormous talent and things to come. I bought this album in 1985 and I bought the cassette in 1989, and yesterday I bought the CD. The more i listen to the mats the more i realize how important Bob Stinson was to their sound and he is in pure form on Hootenanny. Isnt it funny that an album put out 17 years ago as an afterthought is still better then anything else out there today? Amazing."
