9/10 Penrith Steve 24th February 2016“Let It Be” has always been my favourite album by The Replacements. Whilst they retain the punk sound from their earlier albums on “Favourite Thing” and “We’re Coming Out”, they also develop their sound to become more melodic and more dynamic with tracks such as “Unsatisfied”, “Sixteen Blue” and “Androgynous”. It also includes a cover of Kiss’s “Black Diamond”, and like it or not, Kiss were definitely an influence. “Let It Be” is a transitional album between their first two albums and their more polished, but nevertheless excellent albums such as “Tim” (1985) and “Pleased To Meet Me” (1987).
