The Replacements Artist Snapshot:

The Replacements came out of Minneapolis, at the forefront of the indie rock scene that was exploding there in the early-to-mid-1980s. After dropping its initial hardcore leanings, the group caught fire with a skewed take on classic rock, mixing Stones-y chord changes with the nihilistic attitude of punk. As leader Paul Westerberg's songwriting became increasingly sophisticated, the group essentially became a vehicle for him. He continued to chart his own course in a solo career after the band's final release in 1990.

Product Notes

The middle title among the triad of seasoned-but-not-depleted mid-'80s Replacements albums, Tim isn't as inspired as its predecessor, Let It Be, nor as involving as its successor, Pleased to Meet Me. Still, it's the work of a wondrous foursome near the peak of its powers, and, as collections of songs go, it may be Paul Westerberg's crowning achievement. "Kiss Me on the Bus," "Swinging Party," and "Here Comes a Regular" pretty much set the standard for the sloppy-drunk college-rock romanticism of the '80s. "Bastards of Young," "Lay It Down Clown," and "Left of the Dial" proved that the hard-charging Midwesterners were still scamps at heart...or at least could still fake it. This is the last album made by the original quartet (the excesses that would lead to guitarist Bob Stinson's early death prompted his dismissal after Tim came out) and provides a key to understanding the appeal of an astonishing band that did everything right except figure out how to become stars. --Steven Stolder
