This band have just the one sound - one that doesn’t sound as fresh as it did back in ‘89.

Really all their songs adhere to a similar framework - ok, some have longer instrumental sections. That’s it.

Still, their third and final album isn’t significantly weaker than what came before and it IS a great sound and a good ‘song’.
"I stayed home on the fourth of July
-and I closed the shades so I didn'thave to see the sky."

How can a line be melodramatic and mirrored all the same? God, I love this.
An Excellent album that takes you away and keeps you there throughout the full tracklisting. Although this album doesn't include Galaxie's 500 biggest songs, this is their best full album experience. This is where Galaxie 500 reached their peak and nailed there sound
