||Don't overlook this one|
If you are the least bit intrigued by this amazing band, don't ignore their early albums; they are the ones that established an incredible, tenacious loyalty among their serious fans.

||Plant it and let it grow|
After listened a few times to a tape of Reckoning that a friend made, I thought the record had some good songs but was not great.

||The alt rock classic that influenced so many|
.R.E.M. influenced many bands to come with this one, long before their more commercial later albums. That's because the subtle, smart lyrics intertwined within bright and shiny guitar riffs that recall the Who and the Byrds altered the alt rock scene forever.

||Second album from Athens' finest|
Their early sound always provides a contrast when you're used to hearing their later works. It's a shame you don't get to hear any of these songs on the radio, like their big hits, but then they weren't even on the radio when this album was made! (Apart form college radio, of course!) The classic 'Harborcoat' is one of their best ever songs.

A favorite of mine since it came out, the original cd lacked punch. This one boosts it up a few notches.
