Rhino's remastered & expanded deluxe edition features the original 18-track set plus 13 bonus selections, all but one previously unreleased. The Replacements' audacious 1981 Twin/Tone debut Sorry Ma Forgot To Take Out The Trash instantly heralded the Minneapolis-based indie rock phenomenon's competing tendencies towards indelible genius and bleary, drunken anarchy. With now classic songs including 'Takin' A Ride,' 'Shiftless When Idle,' 'Customer' and 'Johnny's Gonna Die,' the 'Mats' legendary founding line-up-lead singer/songwriter and guitarist Paul Westerberg, Chris Mars (drums) and brothers Bob and Tommy Stinson (guitar and bass, respectively)-unleashed a shambling, brilliant sound that profoundly influenced the course of modern rock.
Top customer reviews
Bass player Tommy Stinson was only seven years old when they recorded this record. The little toddler really brings it. Westerberg can only shout one note, but it's well chosen. This also contains some of Bob Stinson's more ferocious playing, and Chris Mars kicks it.
This is a great punk rock record. To my mind, the standout tracks are:
Takin' a Ride
Shiftless When Idle
I Hate Music
Something to Dü
Johnny's Gonna Die
Raised in the City
OK I know that's most of the album. The remaining songs are pretty great too. And if you buy the Rhino CD, you get "If Only You Were Lonely," an early Westie masterpiece.
I love punk rock, and for my money, this is best punk rock record ever made. Not hardcore: it's punk rock. Better than the first Clash one, even better than The Ramones.
