The Dream Syndicate are at the foundation of contemporary alternative music because back in 1981 at a time when most bands were experimenting with new technology, they choose to bring back the guitar. Their seminal album The Days of Wine and Roses (1984) has been cited as influential by artists from Nirvana to the Black Crowes. Known for their incredible live performances, the band toured with everyone from REM to U2, before splitting up in 1988. In 2012 after years apart in solo projects, frontman Steve Wynn reunited The Dream Syndicate to perform at a charity festival in Spain. The reunited band took everything in baby steps. A few shows here and there - including a still talked-about set at Wilco's Solid Sound Festival. The shows were exciting - for both the band and the eagerly awaiting fans, many of whom weren't even alive when the band were around the first time. The next step was to see if the excitement and newfound chemistry would extend to the studio.

My only complaint is the vinyl press. I just opened my THIRD copy after returning 2 others and it has the same symptoms. The cover itself is thin so upon opening it the seams are split on it and the inner sleeve. The vinyl is 180G but and has rough edges that could cut you. Perhaps it's 180G of melted down soda bottles. All 3 copies have been warped and the added bonus is side 2 on this one is pressed crooked so it sounds wavy as you play it -
When comparing the digital version to the vinyl it seems as if whoever mastered it did a really lousy job - it's all midrange and if you can make it past the noisy press you have listener's fatigue.
I was hoping I had initially gotten a bad copy - but 2 copies later and it's the same thing. This one will just go in the box as I'm sick of returning them and have no faith in getting a good copy.
I'm glad the band is back and making great music again. Hopefully a better pressing will come out later.
In any event, "How Did I Find Myself Here?" has been in my listening rotation for well over a month now. And so have the group's other superb CD's "These Times" and "The Universe Inside."
All great music — mesmerizing at times -- that keeps me listening day after day.
Great to see The Dream Syndicate back. Top Ten for 2017.

And they still do their songs as if no time had passed.
Thanks a lot Steve Wynn & Co.!
Alfieri del c.d. Paisley Underground, il movimento neo psichedelico americano dei primi anni '80, i nostri hanno rappresentato ben più che un semplice gruppo rock per chi, come il sottoscritto, ha vissuto in diretta quegli anni eccitanti. I DS hanno rappresentato l'aggiornamento del linguaggio dei Velvet Underground filtrato dall'esperienza new wave dei magnifici Television dai quali hanno mutuato l'attitudine acida nell'uso barocco delle chitarre.
Ascoltando il disco sembra che tutti questi anni non siano mai passati quasi che si fosse al cospetto di una nuova sensazione del rock ed invece sono i nostri eroi, ancora in sella come un tempo.
Inutile parlare dei singoli brani, questo è un disco che si compra e si custodisce a prescindere.
Unico neo la registrazione non eccelsa del vinile inciso a basso volume ed eccessivamente carico di basse frequenze.
