Replacement's Let It Be gives me more than the Beatles. But it is a great tip of the hat and both albums are amazing.

From Brad1770 05/06/2018 11:43
The Expanded Edition contains 6 additional tracks reviewed below

1. '20th Century Boy'[Outtake]: rocking cover of T-Rex's 1973 single only track TICK

2. 'Perfectly Lethal'[Outtake]: nice enough track but not difficult to understand why it was left off the album TICK

3. 'Temptation Eyes' [Outtake]: dreadful cover of a dreadful song originally done by The Grass Roots in 1970 CROSS

4. 'Answering Machine' [Solo Home Demo]: literally Paul with electric guitar recorded into a cassette player . Awful sound but historically important PASS

5. 'Heartbeat - It's A Lovebeat' [Outtake]: cover of obscure The DeFranco Family 1973 track , too clever for its own good CROSS

6. 'Sixteen Blue' [Outtake - Alternative Vocal ]: almost identical to original PASS

God bless The Replacements , the band that rang the the doorbell to the fame mansion then ran away giggling amongst themselves

"Let It Be" encapsulates everything why we love this band

Its has the sublime in 'I Will Dare' and 'Unsatisfied'

It has the great in 'Answering Machine' & 'Androgynous'

It has WFT moments in 'Gary's Got A Boner ' and ' Tommy(Stenson) Gets His Tonsils Out' which is literally about Tommy getting his tonsils out as Paul struggled to come up with lyrics to pad this album out in the studio

And like all Replacements albums the down right stinker in 'Black Diamond' which is an odd cover off Kiss' 1974 self titled album

God Bless The Replacements

There are definitely some great songs, but I just don't appreciate The Replacements as much as it seems I should.

Perfectly balanced production, The Replacements were staying true to a punk aesthetic while trying to branch out into something else. Arguably one of the biggest turning points for early alternative.

Your can hear its influence all over this album. It would've been so cool to be a college kid at that time, reveling in the college rock scene.

One of the best of the early alternative era, up there with stuff by The Smiths and R.E.M. While The Replacements are a little more punk than those bands (Favorite Thing, We're Coming Out), they had there alternative-y moments too. Peter Buck from R.E.M. even makes a guest appearance on I Will Dare. If you like punk or alternative, this one is a must have.

Great album. From the angst of Were Coming out, to the deep poetry of Unsatisfied.

Also, I've noticed there are multiple songs that seem the guitar was just blatantly copied my bands from the 90s and 2000s. Very Influential

Can't believe I found this so late in life. It's such a great record not a bad song.
Favourite songs: Androgynous, Unsatisfied and I Will Dare
