I think I went the opposite route that most people take in terms of discovering the Replacements. It seems like most people start off checking out more respected albums like "Let It Be" and "Tim." I just happened to listen to this album first which might make me slightly biased since I had no basis for comparison.
First off, let me say that this is a great record. A lot of people find this album to be lackluster but I disagree. It's got all the ingredients of any good Replacements album which, simply put, are great songwriting and great music. It does lean more towards a pop style of music than their previous albums, but I don't mind pop if it's done well (which it certainly is here). The playing is also a bit more restrained here, but there's still enough of the Replacements' trademark recklessness that comes through. Like all their great albums, the songs are eclectic and no two sound the same. Following the low key vibe of "They're Blind" with the rave up, energetic stomp of "Anywhere's Better Than Here" are perfect examples of the various moods that they are capable of.
The only real problem with the album is that it does suffer a bit from the typical, overly polished, 80's style production. There's a lot of reverb on everything, especially the drums, which sort of saps the raw energy that tends to give the Replacements an edge. However, the songs are good enough so that it doesn't really matter that much. In some cases, the production even works to a song's advantage such as contributing to the haunting feeling of "Rock N'Roll Ghost."
In the end, I think "Don't Tell a Soul" is a really solid album that holds up over time and repeated listens. Is it their best album? No. But is it a bad record?

Paul Westerberg once admitted that, with this album, The Replacements really made a serious play for commercial success while trying to hide that attempt. Who could blame them for trying, though? They had put out nothing but brilliant music up until then and had little to show for it but critical respect and a little beer money. This album is great. Not as great as their very best work but great nonetheless. "Rock and Roll Ghost" takes on added poignancy when you know that Paul wrote it about a friend from his early rock days who killed himself and that Paul can't bring himself to sing the song in public. "I'll Be You" is a perfect line-drive that deserved more attention from mainstream radio. And the other songs on the record range from good to miraculous. The Replacements were perhaps the greatest rock and roll band of all time if one uses heart, talent, sense of humor, and soul as criteria. This album is evidence that they knew they deserved more popular attention and were willing to go for it. I just wish it had worked. Then there'd be more kids today having their lives changed like mine was.

If I could confess to you something I have noticed for years about my favorite band from the 80's The Replacements. Many of the Replacement fans are idiots. They cannot accept that a man grows older and changes. I remember when I first bought Don't tell a Soul the complaining from Mats fans. Paul sounds incredibly reserved. So the boys who played loud, fast and obnoxious grew up. Must we crucify them. The fact remains that "Rock & Roll Ghost" is a freighting epitaph for a man who has given his life to rock and roll and just disappeared before everyone's eyes. Since the Replacements were essentially ghosts none of the Tom Petty fans seemed to have minded when he lifted the line "Rebel without a clue" line from "I'll Be You" for one of his lame excuses for rock and roll. PETTY HAD A HIT WITH IT! "Darlin' One" hold the emotion of a man screaming the loss of a woman he so desperately wants and cannot have. Is that what the songs is about? I don't know that's what I read into it. That is what the song means to me! "We'll Inherit the Earth" should have been a Generation X mantra. Except it came out 3 years too early. This is a great album with great songwriting. This is one of the Replacements finest moments and the majority of Replacement fans dismiss it.......Simpletons......

The 'Mats' sixth studio album is the one that almost all fans hate. Dismissed as too mainstream and too slick in its production, Don't Tell A Soul is often disregarded in discussion of The Replacements' legacy and influence.

In reality however, the album is a progression from the rawer (and similarly brilliant) Pleased To Meet Me (1987), and is Paul Westerberg's most accomplished work as a songwriter.

The album stands as the band's most melancholy work, Slim Dunlap's lead guitar is refined and understated (replacing Bob Stinson's wild-man solos); Tommy Stinson's bass work is tighter than ever; Chris Mars' drumming is pure precision; and whilst Westerberg's songs are still built on attitude and alienation they are tinged with an air of acceptance and resignation: the band's first and only hit, 'I'll Be You,' hints at the band's desire to become, if only fleetingly, the stars they should have been, had their loutish, beer-soaked immaturity not got the better of them. The problem is, this belligerent f**k-'em-all gusto made The 'Mats so endearing, and the trouble fans have is refusing to acknowledge that even these beautiful losers had to grow up sometime, disavowing the fact that 'Achin' To Be' 'I'll Be You' 'Rock n Roll Ghost' and 'Darlin' One' are some of the most sophisticated rock songs ever written.

As someone has said earlier, if anyone thinks the band had sold out on Don't Tell A Soul, then Westerberg's tortured scream at the opening of 'Anywhere's Better Than Here' should tell them otherwise.
