Nah, I wouldn't. Been there, done them. Too much work.
A great alt rock album from the 1990's with a nice mixture of Post-Hardcore, Shoegaze and Space Rock which really does give it an huge over other Alt Rock acts being a more atmospheric and melancholic listen

so good, this is right up my alley and what a cover

fave tracks: little dipper; the pod; stars; the very old man; why i like the robins; i hate it too; songs of farewell and departure

least fave track: suicide machine (if i had to choose)
Hum was one of those bands that did all of the talk show appearances and everything but never seemed to grip the masses with a hit track for some reason.
