Amoeba Review

Brad 10/15/2012

I can still remember the first time I got into this band. It seriously seems like just yesterday, which is weird. I remember hearing the single on the radio and being sort of into it. But then I borrowed my friends copy of the album and got super into it. It was sort of twee and very British. "Here's Where The Story Ends" was their big single in America. And it was overplayed without a doubt. It was sort of like their "What I Am." It was just as overplayed as Edie Brickell. But the album was awesome. The album also included "Can't Be Sure," "Skin & Bones," "A Certain Someone" and "Hideous Towns." I listened to this album a lot. As soon as I put it on it brings my right back to 1990.  The Sundays went on to put out two more albums. Blind in 1992 and Static & Silence in 1997. I was also a big fan of Blind.  Harriet Wheeler fronted the band. She was the sort of front person that could only exist in the early '90s. She always seemed introverted and shy, perhaps a bit quirky. They were the kind of band that Angela Chase from My So-Called Life or Darlene from Roseanne would listen to. Before they got really into grunge music.

 

This album featured in Brad’s Best Albums of 1990 blog.
