Product Description

Eventually is the second solo album that Paul Westerberg released after the breakup of The Replacements. [Note: This product is an authorized CD-R and is manufactured on demand]

Amazon.com

Admittedly, Eventually is as tentative a collection of songs as its title indicates. Yes, Westerberg is mostly satisfied keeping house and watching the rabbits in his backyard. Yes, he's pleased to report he's "given the world the slip." And, yes, the least convincing songs here are the full-on rockers, while one of the most affecting is "Good Day," a winsome piano ballad that is Westerberg's "The Way We Were." Better still is "Hide N Seekin'," a song haunted by the Rock & Roll Ghost Westerberg sang of in 1989. In this incarnation, it's hard to tell if the apparition quivering in the shadows is the Replacements' late lead guitarist Bob Stinson, or Paul himself. --Steven Stolder

It's tempting to compare unfavorably this album (along with other Westerberg's less than raunchy solo work) to the Replacements at their prime. It's also a little bit unfair. Any artist should be allowed to grow up and move beyond their initial influences and early chemical dependencies.
One of the marks of the better Replacements' albums was a commitment to a particular type of sound that ran througout the album and served as a skeleton for the work, like "Let it Be"'s distant guitar or "Pleased to Meet Me"'s crunchy, stilted guitar sound. Unlike "14 Songs", which I liked, but was somewhat schizophrenic in its sound, this album commits to a sound and sticks to it. Perhaps Westerberg learned to split up these musical urges later on when he put out his rockers on the "Grandpaboy" EP and then his balladry on "Suicane Gratification". While I haven't yet purchased the former, the latter is served well by the consistent theme.
Most of the songs are well-crafted, and avoid the cheap and obvious hooks of a lot of what gets put on the radio. "Love Untold", the one single from this album, has a subtlety that's not on radio very often. But maybe the most rewarding aspect of this album is for long-time Replacements fans. The song "Good Day" might, without the context, just otherwise be an ordinary quarter-note ballad, with lyrics that on the surface might seem trite --
"A good day/doesn't have to be a Friday/doesn't need to be a birthday/the next one maybe you won't survive/sing along, "Hold my life"...

I avoided buying this album for a long time based on the negative reviews. I have to tell you, it's much better than I expected. To be sure, there are a couple of novelty songs thrown in there to add color to the album (think "You Know My Name, Look Up the Number" by the Beatles), which feature unusual changes, unusual arrangements, etc. But I also hear a subtle brilliance here, especially with "These Are the Days", "Love Untold", "Hide 'n' Seekin'" and "Angels Walk" (a good song written around a great guitar riff). Critics of this album will say that it's too mannered, and a bit over-wrought, which flies in the face of the sloppy, rebellious rock 'n' roll that they've come to expect from this artist. I can't argue with this. I have to concede that Paul excels at riff-based bar-room rock, which mirrors the Rolling Stones' and/or the Faces' better moments. However, it seems that he went out of his way to show us some other facets of what he can do, and I can appreciate that. There are some good sounds, interesting lyrics and real emotion here. I disagree that he was "writing songs to order" as some critics have stated. In my view, he simply took some hard-won artistic license and used it to try on different hats. Would people have preferred it if he donned a jumpsuit full of rhinestones and sang the Replacements old songs in Las Vegas every night? I don't think Paul Westerberg has ever produced a bad album, and this one is no exception. There are plenty of good moments here that bear repeated listening-check it out if you can.

He's such a simple yet rich artist and by rich I mean that with a simple phrase comes deep, provoking emotions. Good Day made me cry when I first heard it. At that point and very moment it truly moved me and it helped me expel some pent up emotions and its true...a good day is any day that you're alive. A loved the slight step away from the traditional stuff I heard and it's ballad mixed with something I can't place my finger on. An artist who touches another's soul becomes immortal as far as I am concerned. Thank you for writing something that touched me so deeply. Simple yet rich. Much love from me to you in return.

While fans haven't been good to this album, it has become a favorite of mine and this may be one of Paul's best works, along with Suicaine Gratifaction (1999) and Stereo/Mono (2002). This was Westerberg's 2nd solo album released in 1996, after his break up with the legendary band The Replacements and first solo album in 1993 called 14 Songs, which is a great album as well and showed Paul making a big leap forward into more folk driven areas on tracks such as "Runaway Wind" and Dice Behind Your Shades". On this album though, he keeps the same style but manages to make an album that's more consistant then 14 Songs. This record may feel weak on first listen but I find myself loving it more and more. Paul balances the fun and often silly tracks with the sensitive ones very well. This may be Paul's most pop record, maybe his most produced as well.

Not a single bad track here but the best are "Love Untold, "Ain't Got Me", "Once Around The Weekend", "Angels Walk", "Good Day" and "Time Flies Tomorrow". While the album has sort of faded into obscurity, it's a really good record that hasn't recieved the best reviews but I find Paul to be a unique artist who makes different kind of pop music. Either you will love it or hate it but I still think it desereves a chance. A great record from start to finish in my ears.
