Almost every other track on The Lemonheads third outing, "Lick", is a memorable slice of proto-grunge in the vein of other punk-influenced artists from the late '80s and early '90s such as Nirvana and Dinosaur Jr. The other half isn't quite up to snuff. This is due in large part to the dual songwriting credit. Evan Dando, who would eventually head the band, manages to both pen the catchiest tunes as well as deliver the most appealing vocal performances, delivering the goods on both fast and angsty numbers like "Glad I Don't Know" as well as on mid-tempo numbers like the haunting "Circle of One" and their legendary cover of Suzanne Vega's "Luka". Founding member Ben Deily isn't quite so lucky. His songs chug along on generic guitar riffs that are totally par for the course for an underground band in the wake of Sonic Youth in the late '80s, and his prepubescent-sounding voice and seemingly nonsensical lyrics don't help.

If you're a fan of bands like the aforementioned Nirvana and Dinosaur Jr., or of lo-fi acts like Pavement then I highly recommend that you give "Lick" a listen. It's good, messy fun.

It still holds up more than 10 years and dozens of listenings later. The songs are catchy and clever with a punk edge and a sense of humor. None of it is filler and "Luka" alone is worth the price of admission. But if you are a fan of the "Into Your Arms"-type pop songs, you might not like this. I think it was all downhill from this point. If you do like this, check out "Creator" and "Hate your Friends", forget the later stuff.

This review is pretty much in regards to the recently released Deluxe Reissue. Amazon seems to have this and the (Taang Records) original version's reviews lumped together. The sound quality is the same, as there appears to be no significant remastering of the tracks. I'd know the difference since I've regularly listened to this album since it was released in 1989. It didn't need any in my opinion anyway, the original album sounds perfect. The track listing for the first 11 songs are just as they are in the original album, beginning with Mallow Cup and ending with Ever. The bonus material, tracks 12-22 are great and pretty much the reason you'll want to re-purchase this album in deluxe form. Two bonus studio tracks (Strange and Mad) are included, as well as a couple of Deily-era live tracks from WERS Boston in 1987. The live versions of Luka and Mallow Cup (along with the infamous band interview with Corey Loog Brennan playing the part of Evan Dando) on a Holland radio station has been properly reinstated on this release. The final four tracks are from the band's first e.p. release, being Glad I Don't Know, I Like To, I Am A Rabbit and So F-----d Up!

The repackaging is in digi-pack form, and in my opinion, it could be slightly better. It doesn't offer much other than a couple of photos and credits. The re-release of Creator contained liner notes from drummer John Strohm discussing that time during the recording of the album, and it would have been nice if the same sort of historical data was offered here. But that's just me. All-in-all, a great album and a nice re-release for your classic-era Lemonheads collection.

While I much prefer the first two albums to this one, Lick is still a pretty good record. Sadly, there's much less noise, urgency, and punkish energy on this record than their earlier ones but, again, compared to the long line of crappy releases that followed this, Lick is still a lot better. I'm willing to bet that if you love the later mellower Lemonheads sound, you probably won't like Lick. Personally, I feel that after this record the quality of the Lemonheads music took a huge nosedive and has never recovered. Thanks a lot Evan Dando!

This is the early years.and the early years was the most powerful lemonheads period ever.it's a must own....the rapidly budding Dando [flexes] a burgeoning [songwriting] talent....the real killer here is `Luka,' a wired rewrite of Suzanne Vega's ghastly, mawkish hit; [shows a] talent for melancholy recontextualisation of the oddest source material.
