- Hootenanny by The Replacements
9/10 Jack 8th February 2017
Hootenanny is easily one of the band's best. It's early 1980's punk that has the hardcore attitude but doesn't sound hardcore and still maintains humour and pop leanings. A notch up from the group's legendary debut Sorry Ma, Forgot To Take Out The Trash, the vocals, lyrics, musicianship, and even performance are all just slightly better on Hootenanny than Sorry. The goofy title track, the arrogant "Color Me Impressed" the snotty "Mr. Whirly" "Buck Hill" and "Treatment Bound" make Hootenanny so very good.
