They came back sounding as good as ever, I Will, State of Mine, Listen...all among their best tunes. OK their are less Lo-Fi songs, but the songs are excellent and a must for indie fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars first in 14 years 4 Nov 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
fabulous from start to finish, all killer no filler...but stand-out tracks, for me, are...

'I Will' 'Defend Yr Self' 'State of Mine' and 'Can't Depend' which is, to these ears, very Lynyrd Skynyrd/Creedence...!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific 2 Oct 2013
By Drischord - Published on
Format:Audio CD
I've been thrilled with this record. Sebadoh left the scene on such a blah note with The Sebadoh 14 years ago. I really thought they'd peaked with Bakesale and would never reach such heights again. Not so! Defend Yourself is terrific and really a must for any Sebadoh fan.

Lou's songs on this one are heavily tainted by strife involving his marriage and family. Never accuse the guy of being opaque with his feelings. Sometimes you feel a bit uncomfortably voyeuristic, but the music more than makes up for some slight awkwardness. But the real delight of Defend Yourself is the batch of songs Jason Loewenstein submits. I think it's the best set of his career. If you love noisy, screamy Jason, you'll be disappointed, but if you love angular riffing in the style of Polvo and Sonic Youth, you're going to love what he's got to offer. Vocally he sounds more like Lou than ever, so the strength of this record is more continuity than contrast. As far as I'm concerned, sign me up.

Yeah, some dinosaurs (no pun intended) are going to complain about the lack of Eric Gaffney, but folks need to realize it isn't 1993 anymore. Twenty years have passed, and the fact that Jason and Lou (and Bob D'Amico) gave us such a great record all these years later is reason to celebrate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sebadoh is back and better than ever 25 Oct 2013
By B. Mann - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album is fantastic - I have listened about 10 times and the music gets better. Lou Barlow really has an extra emotional edge on this album and Lowenstein is just pure garage punk rock N roll - punch you right in the mouth. The music is pure and produced to perfection - its so nice to hear music that sounds like rock N roll instruments are supposed to sound like - not over-produced compressed crap from major labels. The first track "I Will" will give you goose bumps and make you cry and then motivated you - all in one track. Lowenstein kills it on the title track...and the entire album is great. The Vinyl LP came with MP3 download and 2 bonus tracks.

Like with all music their will be haters who just don't get the raw legendary beauty of this album. Music critics are pompous nerds that are usually one step behind. People who want pure 3 member band, real organic music - will love this album. Kurt Cobain loved Sebadoh for the reason that this album is great - its true to the soul of what music should be....

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Sebadoh 17 Sep 2013
By J. Clark - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
For those who have been missing that Sebadoh sound over the years, this will scratch that itch. No need to drone on and on about anything in particular. If you like Sebadoh, buy this and be happy (or melancholy as your mood suits you).

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy This Record 7 Dec 2013
By CM - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It's great to see Sebadoh making records again. I was somewhat skeptical after years since their last album, but as soon as I started listening, my fears were put to rest. I haven't stopped listening to it since I purchased it four weeks ago. Awesome record by one of the best bands ever. Hopefully we won't have too wait to long for the next release.

4.0 out of 5 stars loose, frolicking indie rock w/ melody & power 2 Nov 2013
By Charlie Quaker - Published on
Format:Audio CD
The return of these venerable indie rockers with their 11th studio album after a 14 year hiatus
finds them in strong form. The songs build on the band’s previous loose, quirky, frolicking indie
style, combining equal parts of hooky melodic pop structures and semi-raw, mid-fi post-grunge
energy. Dark, noisy guitars roar with a slacker-punk core one minute and ring with a psychedelic
roots/pop spirit in the next. Members have played in Dinosaur Jr., Folk Implosion, Sentridoh.
Recalls bands like the Replacements, Pavement, Meat Puppets, Guided By Voices, Superchunk,
Beat Happening, Robyn Hitchcock. Sebadoh are like the neighborhood garage band that made
it. They’ll always be a ‘7’ or ‘8’ out of ‘10’ for me. Maybe never at the top of the list, but always
on it, always fun to listen to, often better than I expect.
