The Replacements: All Shook Down (Sire 7599-26298)
Martin Aston, Q, November 1990
THE MINNEAPOLIS band's eighth album confirms the scurvy garage-band thrill of Stink or 1985's Tim has well and truly passed on. A sharp variety of melodies still fall off writer Paul Westerberg's nib, but this is the first collection to sound like his heart wasn't in it.
Total word count of piece: 197
