VINE VOICEon 27 August 2008
This album has some very good tracks on, but it's not the unequivical genius that would follow, starting with the 1993 album Painful and pretty much onward throughout the rest of their career.

It contains the brilliant indie guitar pop track Upside Down, which is well catchy. Satellite is a mellow little delight a sound which they would pursue on tracks on subsequent albums.

De touring America With Horns is another great track building on the same chord sequence as an earlier YLT track called Alyda.

Where they fail (I believe, although I've heard some Yo La Tengo fans says they love these tracks) is on tracks like Mushroom Cloud of Hiss and Some Kinda Fatigue, where Ira's voice is just angry and shouty and lacks melody. The guitar work is pretty rocking but its not quite there.

On the next album, Painful, they add organs which warm the mix up and Ira has finally given up the urge to shout, but to sing, and sing nicely he does.

Worth buying but try Painful, Electro-Pura, I Can Hear the Heart Beating as One and And Nothing Turned Itself Inside Out before.
