This is my favorite solo Westerberg stuff. I really wish he'd released it on vinyl. I would absolutely love to have this on vinyl. The CD is great but man would this rock as a record. This is one of my favorite musical units of all time. It's absolutely bad @ss!!! I do not, as some mistakenly have done, assume that this is a Replacements album and since I know this little factoid I love this SOLO ALBUM! Let the detractors slowly fade away into the background outta sight where they belong!

12,001 STARS TO MARS!

I love the Replacements, but like most fans, haven't been fully satisfied with Paul Westerberg's solo work. One thing I can say about it, though, is that whenever he puts out an album, there's always at least one or two songs on it that are the best that I've heard in the past couple of years. Anyway, this album is a stunner. I never thought I'd hear anything out of him that was as consistent as the Mono album. It'll definitely be a great summer album. It was warm last weekend, and I was driving around town with the windows down, and Mono cranked up high. Every song rocks, and it's clear that Paul does better when he's got a solid band with him, especially with Tommy Stinson playing bass and singing those gawdawful, but wonderful harmonies that I haven't heard in too long of a time. The music reminds me of the more rockin' songs on PTMM and All Shook Down (which I listen to all the time).

Some silliness here, as benefits a knock off meant to inject some energy into Westerberg's playing (it does) - but also some great, fun tunes. "High Time", "Anything but That", "AAA", Between Love and Like" and "Eyes Like Sparks" which the same lyric over and over and still manages to inspire

This CD sure has a lot of reviews for such a limited release. I probably don't have anything to say about it that isn't somewhere in various other reviews here, but since the music of Paul and the 'Mats has meant a lot to me, I'll give it a shot.
I disagree with the reviewers who suggest this sounds like a 'Mats album - part of the charm of most of the 'Mats albums was that they were all over the place; for example, Pleased to Meet Me had the world's greatest ballad ("Skyway"), power pop should've-been-hits ("Ledge", "Can't Hardly Wait"), even jazz ("Nightclub Jitters"). This album doesn't deviate much from the 70s rock formula (the Rolling Stones comparisons are on target, I think). That being said, Paul does it better than most could, and it actually sounds pretty fresh to me. Yes, some of the songs here could have appeared on Tim, but they would have been sandwiched by a whole bunch of brilliant, all-over-the-place stuff.
All-in-all though, a worthy addition to the CD collection for fans. I guess if it came from someone else for whom I didn't have unreasonably high expectations, I would be ecstatic at finding it. Only suffers in comparison to past brilliance.

Loved this album the first time I heard it, and still love it 8 years later.

It's not the Replacements, and I doubt it was supposed to be when it was conceived.

I've read that it's mostly just Westerberg and a 4-track recorder. The tautness and simplicity that results from this approach really underscores the unique quality that Westerberg has as a songwriter.

His songs seem to convey so much with so little. These aren't really love songs, or breakup songs, or angry middle aged guy songs, but all of those themes seem to be present, along with a few baseball and bathroom motifs to round things out.

This album has a lot of great sing-along melodies and smirking wit.

I think Westerberg knocked one right out of the park here.

[People] before me think that Mr. Westerberg flopped making a Replacements type record. What the [people] who typed before me didn't figure into the equation is what Mr. Westerberg meant when he made that elucidation. This is most like a Replacements record in so far as that Mr. Westerberg wrote and recorded this record like a Replacements record. Quick, no touchups and always bowing to the alter of rock and roll. This is his best rock & roll record in a long time. I'm delighted that Mr. Westerberg didn't go out like some of the musicians that started the same time he did when the Replacements starting making noise. Those who think they have to sound like they always sounded so they can stay in the public eye (U2), drift into pop obscurity (R.E.M.), vanish (Bob Mould) or become an eccentric (Frank Black). This is record shows us Mr. Westerberg playing to his greatest strength, writing rock and roll songs.
And yes you call him Mr. Westerberg because he deserves that respect...
12,000 stars!

In case you don't know this: Paul Westerberg is "Grandpaboy". Also, Tommy Stinson plays bass on this recording. So, if you are a fan of the Replacements that has been pining away for some kind of a reunion, this is probably as close as you'll ever get. A lot has happened to Paul since the Mats' split. He turned forty. He married and became a father. He basically has stopped touring. But, after listening to this CD I became convinced that he has finally reached a comfortable place in his life. He sounds so sure of himself and his songwriting abilities on this CD. To myself, this is the most exciting album he's recorded since 14 songs. This is the first time since the Mats' that he sounds like he's actually having fun doing what he does. Every song on here is an absolute gem. I found myself humming along to the tunes on the first listen. I have been a long-time Mats' fan and I can't recommend this CD enough. Please don't let the fact that it's titled "Grandpaboy" keep you from buying this CD.
