5.0 out of 5 stars A Seminal Album, A Different Band, 17 April 2007
This review is from: Lick (Audio CD)
For me, "Lick" is and always will be the definitive Lemonheads album. In the truest punk style, the local outfit from Boston actually weren't all that good before the album was made, and after it was made, effectively split up. "Lick" is a fleeting schizophrenic moment of freshness and ferocity where two contrasting frontmen battled and complimented each other to scintillating effect.

Deily provided the out-and-out punk-rock heroism while Dando provided proper songs - it was 1989, I was sixteen and the popularity of "Lick" anticipated the meteoric rise of the Sub Pop or "grunge" genre that would follow just a year or two later. The band that existed after the split was quite a different animal - in a couple of years Dando was soon producing terrific material on his own (the "Favorite Spanish Dishes" EP and "It's A Shame About Ray" LP in particular) - but the punk element had long gone.

It is fairly obvious what belongs to Deily and what belongs to Dando. Deily's neighbour-bothering "Cazzo di Ferro" and "I Am A Rabbit" punk tracks are absolute gems in their own right. The softer numbers like "Anyway" and "Circle Of One" are clearly Dando's, perhaps not quite the quality of the stuff he would produce a couple of years later, but providing the sensitivity and diversity that really made this recording something special.
