A fantastic album that blends "The Replacements" and Psychedellic Furs" together into a fantastic album. Dramarama recorded a number of fine records, but sadly only their almost hit "Anything Anything" is really remembered at all. As for this album, buy it!
The greatest record of 1985 and possibly the entire decade that no one heard. "Anything, Anything" is a legitimate contender for the single greatest rock song ever written and the rest of the album absolutely blazes with energy, melodicism, and a special kind of punk energy only comparable to similar alternative bands of the time like the Replacements or Husker Du. "Emerald City" will haunt you for weeks on end, as elegant and beautiful a song you will ever hear.rHyperbolic? Perhaps. But this album is really that damned good.
