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

This was pretty much the soundtrack to my freshman year of high school, and I love to revisit it!

Ahead of its time and simultaneously one of the best products of its time. Moments of beauty followed by moments of fun followed by beauty and so on, mixed with introspection and angst. A great album

A great snotty punk rock record. Let it be, what a brilliant album title, who would have the balls to name an album that? The Replacements best album since their debut, sorry ma, LIB is a swaggering and cocky LP full of attitude and even vulnerability at times. All the tracks are standouts, including a cover of Kiss anthem, black diamond. A great rock'n'roll record.

The ultimate angst album. The last two tracks- Sixteen Blue and Answering Machine are my two favorites. This album is amazing lyrically, with the exception of the notorious Tommy Gets His Tonsils Out, Black Diamond, and Gary's Got A Boner. Of those three, Gary's Got A Boner is the only track that I think really weighs down the album, the other are good fun. The rest of the album though has great lyrics of sadness and relationships, with the shockingly tolerant for a rock song of Androgynous. The music on here is very good and I also like the vocals quite a bit.
