Artist: The Replacements Track: Shiftless When Idle Album: Sorry Ma, Forgot to Take Out The Trash Label: Twin/Tone Year: 1981
The evolution of my musical tastes all in one band.
When I first heard The Replacements, I thought that Sorry Ma, Forgot to Take Out The Trash was head and shoulders their best album. Generally though, amongst my friends, Tim was more highly regarded. But I said “fuck you” to those college rock wankers and just turned up Sorry Ma even louder.
As time went by, my ear gradually began to change and now, many many years later, I think that Let It Be might just be their best release… then Sorry Ma, then Tim, then Hootenanny… then the rest.
