This is a solid effort from Superchunk. Like every other Superchunk album, this one's strongest track is the fastest ("Good Dreams"), but with only a couple of exceptions, these are good tight songs. Mac's subject matter has broadened somewhat, and it is nice to hear him write a relationship song that sounds upbeat (Good Dreams, again). The biggest difference on Come Pick Me Up is Mac abandoned his Chunk singing in favour of his Portastatic whisper. Don't worry though most of these tracks still rock.
