iTunes Editors’ Notes

Paul Westerberg has always been a master of melancholy and sadness in rock ’n’ roll. His songs show the kind of empathy that only great songwriters possess, and that empathy rules on this 1992 solo debut. The loss-of-innocence nostalgia of “First Glimmer” will have you aching for your own childhood, and the spare lullaby “Even Here We Are” (just an acoustic guitar and voice) has an unguarded yearning built on telling lines like “Just the song of a bird way up in the sky/But the most beautiful by far/Is the scream of the man who never learnt to fly.” “Runaway Wind” should’ve owned the airwaves; it’s a gentle roller with all the pathos of any great Springsteen tune about hitting the road and deliverance. The beautiful “Things” is as open and honest as any love song ever written. Westerberg rocks here too, with lots of self-depreciation and wit; “Silver Naked Ladies,” “World Class Fad," and “Dice Behind Your Eyes” all are stellar and would’ve worked as Replacements A-sides.

Great!

don't listen to the review by itunes

great first solo album. awesome melodies---i have no idea what the i tune reviewer is talking about. these songs are mostly way above par for any songwriter... get over it "expert" reviewers, the replacements broke up and paul's flying solo. you can't reproduce a band sound when you're not in a band

Although the record received generally positive reviews and spawned the modern rock hit "World Class Fad," the album failed to break the songwriter into the mainstream. Three years later, Westerberg released his second solo album, Eventually. Like...
