#236: Let it Be by The Replacements

4.10.2012

Let it Be by The Replacements (1984)

Favorite Track(s): "I Will Dare" and "Favorite Thing" and "Androgynous" and "Unsatisfied" and "Sixteen Blue"

Thoughts: Isn't this a Keanu Reeves movie?  I haven't seen it, and don't plan to.  I think it's about sports.  This is my first listen to The Replacements.  I wonder how they feel about people thinking about Keanu Reeves when they think of them.  Maybe they don't mind.

Anyway, I loved this album.  The simple piano on "Androgynous", the sweet lyrics of "Favorite Thing" and the bad ass KISS cover.

Is This Better Than The River?: As good, not better to me.

The Replacements bass player, Tommy Stinson, joined Guns N' Roses in 1988 and has been their bass player since. In the cover picture, Tommy Stinson is on the right. His late brother Bob is pictured second from the left.
