The Replacements: All Shook Down (Sire)
Richard Cromelin, Los Angeles Times, 23 September 1990
IN WHICH Paul Westerberg completes the progression from unruly rocker with a tender heart to tender-hearted tunesmith given to rock spasms. All Shook Down erupts periodically with patented Replacements release, but it's defined by songs like 'Sadly Beautiful', which carries a deep country sweetness on a wisp of country form, and 'Last', a swingin' little number from Paul's piano bar.
