    I hated this kind of Lemonheads-lite, floral-dressed, clompety-booted, neurotic ninny inanity the first time round, I have absolutely no idea how anyone could be arsed to expend the (admittedly small) effort it takes to produce such a pointless photocopy ... [but] not even I can find it in my bitter heart to hate the Nickelodeon-Dinosaur Jr bounce of "Georgia" or the honey-toned amble of "Suicide Policeman".

"Suicide Policeman" shambles along like a brokenhearted kid walking down the sidewalk, "Get Away" roars and crackles with Pavement's best, and "Rubber" thuds and groans like the monster under your bed. A perfect album for 90's nostalgia freaks. Full Review »
