Biography

It's been six years since Soul Asylum has issued a new album. But as evidenced by the arrival of 'Delayed Reaction' (the group's first release for 429 Records), the wait was most certainly worth it. Fans will be happy to discover the group's trademark ragged-but-right sound is still very much in tact, and that they've turned back the clock to the good old days ...

sad yet stangely uplifting.. this was the soundtrack of (my) summer of '96, with beautiful melodies and lyrics you just wanna know off by heart. and you will, just like i did - cos you'll listen to it over and over and you'll love every minute of it (just like i did, and still do). it plays like a story, it's to be consumed as an entirity, a journey with a beginning, middle and end.

Never understand the negative reviews for this album in the press and elsewhere, to me it's a classic rock album and was a big part of my youth. Released a year after the death of Kurt cobain it reflected alternative rocks decline (in the mainstream) and the on coming macho nu metal scene. The opener misery is soul asylum at there best reflecting the fake angst being promoted by rock music, it sells. Soul asylum are a band, in that each member is important to the sound, particularly the guitarist Daniel murphy , they can mix the heavy with the soft , to my own devices and promises broken are classic self observation songs and the playlist works with one of there best string of pearls, just like anyone captures loneliness and the closing I did my best is a universal song in which we can all relate. I know a little glossy, but give it a chance and listen to one of the best 90's bands. Lucky to have been a witness

Format: Audio CD
Loathed as I am to be over critical of any artists work this is the finest example I have yet to witness of the ridiculously positive, even sycophantical aspect to some of the album reviews that sometimes appear on Amazon. I revisited this CD today and played it for what turned out to be the very last time from start to finish to see if I had been unfair to so swiftly dismiss it when it when first purchased in 1995.
Unlike the previous reviewer I could not get on with the contents. I found the work mundane, painful to listen to; cringeworthy in places.
Bearing in mind our time on this planet is limited I can think of a million better CD's to spend my time listening to than this.
We all have our guilty pleasures and although I fully respect the affinity any other reviewer using Amazon may have to this or any other album I felt compelled to offer some perspective to the gob-smacking 5* review published.
And in case you feel I am being a little unfair just take a look at how many used copies there are for sale for next to nothing; if you want to sample this album you will only need to meet the cost of the postage plus a few pence. 5 stars it most certainly ain't.

How do you follow your big break-through? 7 Jun. 2001
By "campervan9" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
You have to admit it -- Soul Asylum had their work cut out for them on this one. After Runaway Train and Grave Dancer's Union sold I don't even know how many million copies a few years before (I know that it was a lot), they followed it with Let Your Dim Light Shine. The first single (and first track), Misery, had me hooked from the first time I heard it on the radio, and the rest of the album, though not quite as strong as Grave Dancer's Union, doesn't disappoint -- the best recommendation I can give is to start with Grave Dancer's Union, and if you like it, don't hesitate to pick this one up too.
After Misery, I Did My Best, Eyes of a Child, and To My Own Devices are great ballads. Just Like Anyone is a wonderful mid-tempo rocker, kind of in the Somebody to Shove/Black Gold vein. I don't like Caged Rat -- it sounds like a kind of thrown away grunger from a band that doesn't play hard grunge well, but most of the rest of the album is good listening.

Excellent, as always 13 Feb. 2006
By R. Rognstad - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I'm a long time fan of Soul Asylum, this being the 4th album of theirs that I bought, and I can only wish I bought it sooner! It has everything about Soul Asylum that I love, from the brilliantly intellectual lyrics (String of Pearls) to a little bit of country (Bittersweet Heart) and a little bit of pop (Misery), carefully blended together to create a lovely album. A must buy if you are fan, and if you are new listener, perhaps a good buy to experience the variety they are capable of (you will be hooked!).

"frustrated incorporated" 21 May 2005
By Rich Latta - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Soul Asylum - Let Your Dim Light Shine (1995)

"Misery" is far and away the standout track on this album. It's a perfect pop song, much more tuneful and catchy than anything else here. There's some other good stuff, but some of it is pretty lackluster and almost irritating to be honest. "Shut Down" is pretty good. I like about half of "String of Pearls." As another reviewer here noted, the lyrics are a bit embarrassing at times. And let's face it, when it comes to hard rocking, this band is far from the hardest, although they often deliberately go for a mellower direction on this album.

I thought "Misery" would be a huge hit when I first picked up the single. It seemed to perfectly ridicule the marketing of teen-age angst while celebrating it at the same time. Some of the other reviewers here who criticized the lyrics just didn't get them: they're pretty brilliant. Now I understand why this song didn't take off - it hits a little too close to the bone for the tastes of your average angst-rock fan. I think in some way it reveals a little too much, something they'd rather not consider (especially while trying to rock out).
their dim light shines bright 14 Aug. 2005
By J. Clark - Published on Amazon.com

Man oh Man, this is one fine rock n roll album. I bought it

in 1995 when I was 14 years old and its still one of my favorite records ever. I dont like to hype things too much for fear that people will be disappointed but if someone doesnt like this then we have nothing in common when it comes to music. Misery is a song among songs and is what made me a fan in the first place. Promises Broken and I Did my best are Grade A country rockers. I cant think of a bad thing to say about this album or this band, cant wait to hear what they put out next.
Essential 90s alt 24 May 2013
By Collective Bio Matter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It's astounding to me the reviewers that give this album 1 star. Great mix of balladry and creative alt rock. Like many others said, severely underrated. Unfortunately, this gem is tossed aside by those that probably are not even fans.
If you're looking for some great 90s rock, then invest in this one.
