This is one of those records that captures a time for many folks. Late 90s nostalgia. But I am sure it stands up today. Earlier records by the band were a lot less accessible and noisier.
Another thing about Mercury Rev; I was in a band back in those days. On a couple of tours Mercury Rev was in the road a week ahead of us. And as I was booking our tour the booking people kept holding the dates for my crappy band because they wanted to be sure we weren’t booked on a day Mercury Rev wanted.
