It has the 2 songs you like, the others probably won't grow on you.

Unlike previous attempts by Evan and the gang, this immensely listenable. It has an "unplugged" feel.Normally this means the songs are stripped bare and dull. Here it really works.
Evan's take on life is a bit "cuckoo". Songs about wearing your ex's favorite tee-shirt and how it suits you better; about how your reflection looks when you see it in the back of a spoon; about how street lights at night make you feel you're descending to hell as you drive along...Erm, Okaaayyyy?
The whole CD is barely half an hour long. But what a 30 minutes they are. (Don't disappear to the loo after this starts).
If you play guitar you'll love this - the chord structures are exceptional. Hang on, I'm putting you off here.
To finish, I'm being a bit controversial here, I reckon it's better than Nirvana's Nevermind - which is one of my all time favorites. Don't set the grunge police on me!
A classic.

Lemonheads are one of the best bands around. Evan Dando's cathy tunes stand forever as some simple, yet very melodic and intelligent songs that you will keep coming back to again and again.

I discovered this album whilst experiencing a typical adolescent 'Nirvana' stage sifting through tapes that my brother recorded in his early teens. I had never heard of the Lemonheads before and was greatly surprised by the original and catchy tunes to be found on this LP. Each is short, direct and punchy. They sound like The Smiths on recreational stimulants. Of particular note are 'Rock and Stroll' and 'Alison's Starting to Happen'. Also, listen out for the excellent reworking of that Simon and Garfunkel classic 'Mrs Robinson', full of infered irony and meaning. It is definitely worth buying, but, unless you love the band to pieces, don't bother with their other stuff - it's far less important.
