The Replacements: The Ritz, New York NY
Jeff Tamarkin, Billboard, 1 March 1986
ACCORDING TO longtime devotees, there are two kinds of Replacements concerts: those at which the band is sloppy and anything goes, and those where the band is tight and professional and accounts for some of the strongest live rock'n'roll being made anywhere. So the fact that the Minneapolis quartet's set here Feb. 1 fell right in the middle made for a curious show indeed.
