Superchunk never really got their due in the early '90s when they were releasing some classic stuff. 1993's "On The Mouth" is probably my favourite of the bunch. It opens with the furious and catchy "Precision Auto" which, as things stand, is probably my favourite Superchunk song. On the following two tracks the energy doesn't let up making for a blistering opening. The pace changes slightly for "Mower" but the quality is still high. Things slow down for the epic "Swallow that" before "I Guess I Remembered It Wrong". The highlight of the second half is the single "The Question Is How Fast?", a driving piece of grungey pop.
