Exclaim!

The Replacements were so luminescent because they played their bizarre, specific brand of rock for the kids at the front, all snot, spit and sweat. In trying so blatantly to recapture that magic, The Deadbeat Bang of Heartbreak City can't help but feel like a lot of smoke and mirrors.

Pitchfork

The Philly band’s rousing punk anthems lose a little luster on an album that feels more motivated by desperation than starry-eyed conviction.

I really, REALLY wanted to like this album. Mainly because of how incredible the cover is. But in reality, this album sounds like it was made by a mediocre 80's rock band. It sounds so outdated and repetitive. There are honestly times when it sounds like a bad KISS song 😐 Such a major disappointment; at least it's not terrible though.

FAVORITE SONG: Tommy in the 80s

LEAST FAVORITE SONG: Born to Raise Hell

This is something my Dad would listen to it. It's very glam-rock, hair-band kind of music. But I think that's really cool and gives it an edge over bands like Greta Van Fleet that are trying to revamp an old sound. The second half of this album is not as strong as the first but it's definitely a unique album for this time.

Not really absorbing alternative rock / punk with emo influences.
