5.0 out of 5 stars Energetic punk with spirit and passion
I bought this album on vinyl in 1985 & have recently rebought it on CD as I cannot live without it. Punk it definately is, but it isn't angry, it isn't preachy, it isn't copied. It is original, pure burning energy played in more a garage style than the bands in the UK at that time. The lyrics are fun (like, "I'm in love with the girl the store down...

3.0 out of 5 stars Never sorry for the trash
Not the best record of the band, but this was the fresh sound of the post punk era in USA. Tim is my favorite record of the band, but I like most of their material.

I bought this album on vinyl in 1985 & have recently rebought it on CD as I cannot live without it. Punk it definately is, but it isn't angry, it isn't preachy, it isn't copied. It is original, pure burning energy played in more a garage style than the bands in the UK at that time. The lyrics are fun (like, "I'm in love with the girl the store down the road..!") and not about typical punk cliches.
It is one of the best American punk albums I've heard; I'd like to compare it but they are in a league of their own.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sorry Ma, Forgot To Take Out The Trash, 8 Oct 2011

This review is from: Sorry Ma, Forgot To Take Out The Trash! (Audio CD)
This is the first Cd I have bought by the Replacements. This is a great punk rock album - if you like Soul Asylum's first few albums then this is in a similar vein. Across the eighteen tracks, the overall style is fast-paced hardcore punk but closer listening reveals hidden depths - 'Johnny's Gonna Die' is remarkably sombre, 'Hanging Downtown' is poppy and joyous beneath the sneer. The frantic performance style of this band adds to the excitement, at numerous points in the album it sounds like the wheels are about to fall off yet unbelievably it all works out!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Balanced Perspective?, 11 Aug 2012

Any album with 'If Only You Were Lonely' (a classic drinking song) plus about 30 post-punk/hardcore classics must be worth 5*s.

The 'Mats are my favourite band and this was the album I 1st heard, strangely- 'Don't Ask Wny' is a case in point, sounds a bit like the Pistols (on a really good day), well crafted, great guitars and lyrics. Same goes for opener 'Takin' A Ride' which just explodes from the stereo. Lots of these songs crop up in their sets through the years so theres no 'embarassing early material'-issues here.

These guys are the ultimate in self-deprecating genius (who wants to be famous when its all handed to you on a plate) and there's nothing finer than that, in my opinion
