Iconic and influential album in the alternative/indie rock community. Such a breath taking album to listen to. The dynamic of loud and quiet, melody and noise are perfectly intertwined

Absolutely one of the most fun albums to listen to, still. Melds the poppy with the fucked up in the best imaginable way.

Like it more than Surfer Rosa. One of the best rock albums of the last 15 years of the 20th century

From RobertChristgau 05/09/2015 18:40
They're in love and they don't know why--with rock and roll, which is heartening in a time when so many college dropouts have lost touch with the verities. You can tell from the bruising riffs, the rousing choruses, the cute little bass melodies, the solid if changeable beat. But not from any words they sing. They'll improve in direct relation to their improved contact with the outside world. Getting famous too fast could ruin them.

85/100 = B+

Same here. I always loved Here comes your man, but it took me three or four listens to really get into the album as a whole, and now it's one of my favourite records from the 80s.

What a great album! It took me a couple of listen to appreciate it. Is very creative and unique. This albums sounds like most of the alternative bands in 90s, so I can see it was very influential.

Great, once you understand what they're going for and you give in to the madness and shout along. May take a few listens to get into, but from the first listen you should know something special is going on here.

So, after listening to it a couple more times, it kind of grew on me.
It's still not one of my favourites, but I appriciate it more.

I doubt the monkey on the cover went to heaven. It looks demonic. I can dig it.
