This was my introduction to Superchunk so, although I don't think it's their best, it still is one of my favorites. The only time I ever saw them live was during the tour for this record. I went to the show because Kevin Seconds' Drop Acid was opening up. I had no idea who Superchunk was, but I was quickly converted as they bounce around on stage and blew away that opening band which was so forgettable that I forgot I typed their name one sentence ago. Side-note: I remember that it was also the night that Magic Johnson announced that he had AIDS. Surprisingly both Magic and Superchunk are still going strong today.
