Rhino are reissuing a bunch of The Replacements’ albums to vinyl, and 1987’s Pleased To Meet Me is one of them. It finds the band in a transitional phase, with their early punkish rock sound mingling with newer approaches, such as the inclusion of horns and a more accessible flavour. Vinyl reissue.
8/10 Jack Customer review, 8th February 2017
Pleased To Meet Me was the first album The Replacements released after lead guitarist, Bobby Stinson, older brother of bassist Tommy Stinson was kicked out of the band due to his excessive drug use. Which is slightly hypocritical when you consider the fact that at this point everyone in the band had their own problem with some substance or another. Pleased To Meet Me was the last great Replacements album. While it might not be the band's strongest it is at least a complete change from what they started out as.
