5.0 out of 5 stars The only essential Lemonheads album March 27, 2001
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Half Classic September 27, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.

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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Time To Kick An Action March 3, 2001
By Matthew
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Damn, this is good February 13, 2005
Format:Audio CD
That was my thought when I first bought this album in college. I listened to it for five months. It is one of my favorite albums in my collection and I still listen to it on and off. "luka" is a great remake of an annoying song and "those were the days", some of the lyrics are from TV show "All in the family" (just watch the opening credits.). Their next album after this one is "It's a shame about ray", So this album is one out of four lemonheads albums (along with creator and hate your friends) where Dando and Co.still remain true to their roots.
