This is I believe the second album by the replacements. Its a classic by many critics. One listen to "answering Machine" and you'll be hooked. with lines like "how do you say goodnight to, an answering machine? How do you say Im ok, to an answering machine?" the finaly of the album leaves you with your heart feeling heavy. Of course not all the tracks are about insecure feelings, "we're coming out", "garys got a boner", and some others go back to the rock rutes of the band, but not like they are previously, they dont rock out on power chords anymore. "unsatisfied", a ballad in their terms, is a stretch from, say, their EP "stink". But really thats what this album is all about, becoming more than what they are before. And this album proves that they can do just that.
