CD Reviews

A nice change of pace for a great band
freereign | Ocean of Corn, MN | 12/06/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I like this album a lot. Westerberg's songwriting was maturing, the band was trying to find a way to stay fresh and interested in what they were doing. They missfired on a few songs, but mainly in the arrangement of them, as many of these songs really came alive in concert. If you want a good example, look for the bootleg "Sheet Shower and Shave", it's got two sets, one opening for Tom Petty and another in a club in Madison. The first word isn't really "sheet" but the censors like it better. I recommend the book 'All Over But The Shouting' to anyone. A fun read, puts you in the heart of the Minneapolis scene of the 80's."
Good re-master. But, hit and miss attempt by The 'Mats

"First off, the re-master itself: Comparing with my original 'Mats CD, the songs don't have that "muddy" sound that were common to CD's at that time. The volume has been brought up a few notches, but I don't notice any clipping (which is what's important). Overall, a definite improvement over the old CD. And the song extras are a welcome addition, of course.

As for the original album tracks themselves, I personally find them to be hit or miss. After "PTMM", everyone was expecting big things and this was supposed to be their crossover album into the mainstream. But, that was not to be. Still, I like Side One a lot, even "We'll Inherit The Earth" (granted, it could have been so much better). And Side Two is still worthy for a listen, if just for "I'll Be You" and the underrated "Darlin' One". I believe it's aged well, all things considered.
