Q - p.124

Mojo (Publisher) - p.120
3 stars out of 5 -- "Smartass, sweetly melodic and just irresponsible enough to court constant flameout, The Replacements were America's quintessential college rock band."

The first career-spanning Replacements retrospective, this 2006 collection takes listeners on a whirlwind tour of the beloved Minneapolis band's entire catalogue. Led by singer-songwriter/guitarist Paul Westerberg, the proudly shambolic group tore through the 1980s with rowdy rock rave-ups (the punky "Kids Don't Follow," the defiant "Bastards of Young"), but always tempered their finest punk moments with surprisingly tender pop tunes. ("Within Your Reach," possibly the most beautiful lo-fi tune ever penned, and the gorgeously melancholy "Here Comes a Regular," to name just two, are both included here.)
Although the ensemble never achieved commercial success, the Mats crafted a sizable number of pop-perfect classics, including the chiming "I Will Dare," the propulsive "Alex Chilton," and the urgent "Can't Hardly Wait," all of which are featured here. While 1997's two-CD ALL FOR NOTHING/NOTHING FOR ALL provides a more comprehensive look at the Replacements' major-label days, this disc offers up 10 tracks not on that set, including eight formative tunes from the band's Twin/Tone stint and two new songs recorded in '06 by the surviving original lineup. (Guitarist Bob Stinson died in 1995, and drummer Chris Mars appears only on backing vocals.) For those who missed the Mats in their heyday, this 20-track compilation is an ideal primer, and reinforces their status as one of the greatest rock groups of the '80s.
