    I need a place to discuss how Tim is better than Let It Be!

    I'm almost done with the book and their whole career of self-sabotage is fascinating.

    Tim is my favourite Mats album. That trilogy of Let it Be through Pleased to Meet Me are all very difficult to separate though.

    Definitely a peak in the discography there. Though the songs get a lot of their charm from the production's rough edges, part of me always wonders how huge Bastards of Young could sound with the right mix.

    Yeah i hope someone remasters the albums one day. Same with the later Husker Du records. I mean I'd like a decent sounding version of Zen Arcade and New Day Rising but the original recordings are so raw there's no saving them I'd imagine

    We may not get a remaster while Westerberg is alive haha. He's pretty crotchety!

    I am fucking stoked for this.

    I've always thought that album was underrated if you looked beneath the 80s sheen, but the prospect of a new mix is very enticing.

    I absolutely love the new mix. It improves on almost every song, except for my favorite song on the original LP, "Asking Me Lies"

    The new mix has an insane amount of cowbell and also the drums sound super flat?

    Maybe there weren't enough usable tracks to go with that one

    Anyway this reissue rules

    don't tell a soul was always my favorite replacements record and the new/old mix has totally renewed my obsession with it

    feels like these songs are finally getting the shine they always deserved removed from the uber 80s gloss of the original mix

    the new solo on "they're blind" is sublime

    Talent Show is most improved, I think. Did you know there's banjo in that song?!

    I've been saying it for years but this re-release further re-affirms that "Portland" never should have been left off the album

    An all-timer

    I think my fav Replacements record is Tim, but my most listened to is Pleased to Meet Me. That album is endlessly listenable.
