Album Review

While Birdbrain was a marked improvement over Buffalo Tom's self-titled debut album, Let Me Come Over was truly the great leap forward for the band, sounding richer, more imaginative, and more emotionally powerful than anything they'd attempted in the past. Guitarist Bill Janovitz, bassist Chris Colbourn, and drummer Tom Maginnis individually displayed a greater command of their respective instruments, and collectively their interplay was certainly more confident and intricate, having traded in the muddy clamor of their first recordings for a more layered sound (complete with overdubbed acoustic guitars) that was clean, vibrant, and compelling. (Producers Paul Kolderie and Sean Slade certainly helped, bringing a clearer and better focused sound to these sessions than J Mascis drew from the band.) And while Buffalo Tom was shouting less on Let Me Come Over, they seemed to have a lot more to say; there's a heart and soul to the lovelorn "Taillights Fade" and the yearning "Velvet Roof" that digs a good bit deeper than their previous work (and is also a lot easier to sort through), while even hard rockers such as "Stymied" and "Saving Grace" reflect a new maturity and seriousness of purpose. In fact, if Let Me Come Over has a flaw, it's that Buffalo Tom seems to display a bit less joie de vivre than one might have expected, though after gaining this much in the way of both skills and smarts, you can't blame them for wanting to show them off a bit.

Customer Reviews

A classic

The songs on this album are like a story that grabs you by the ears and drag you into a world of sonic beauty. It's raw and alive with lyrics and sound that most bands cannot touch. Certainly one of their best albums without a bad track on it. Highly recommended for Buffalo Tom fans.

Superb

Still love going back to this album after all these years, one of my all-time favourites. Great energy, honesty and passion.

No reviews??????????????

This album is coming up nearly 20 years old, i bought it the day it was released, and it still sounds incredible.
I was never a big fan of Chris's singing (sorry mate), and there are a few tracks that don't shine, but this is because after hearing Taillights Fade, Mineral and Larry, then nothing else is going to touch them.
Released at the height of Grundge with Nirvana, Mudhoney, Pixies Smashing Pumpkins, blowing everyone away, this album and the former Buffalo Tom albums were slightly over looked, never as heavy, but to the fans who appreciated Buffalo Tom,this album still stands out.

Biography

Formed: 1986 in Boston, MA

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

When they released their first album in 1989, the Boston-based trio Buffalo Tom were written off as Dinosaur Jr. junior. Admittedly, their debut was in debt to J Mascis' thundering guitar and folk-tinged songs and it didn't help that Mascis produced the record, either. Over time, Buffalo Tom stripped away their grungier influences and developed into a straight-ahead rock group of the early '90s, capable of throttling rockers and beautiful ballads. Comprised of guitarist/vocalist Bill Janovitz, bassist/vocalist...
