forged at a difficult time in the band's history, this album is a dark masterpiece that contrasts the band's signature high-energy power punk with a far more sombre, orchestrated approach.

from the opening track, ‘like a fool’, with its droning guitar & languid pace, superchunk serves notice of their desire to move in new directions. there were also band tensions arising from the breakup of mac & bassist laura ballance, hinted at in ballance's morbid album art of a disgruntled woman with a butchered rabbit hanging behind her. but great works are often forged out of misfortune. wedding their melodic impulses with a more sedate approach that utilizes increasingly complexity, superchunk create an emotionally taut album that maps the changing direction of the band as it moves away from its crunchy, arena-pop roots.
