On his first album away from The Replacements, Tommy Stinson proves that Paul Westerberg wasn't the only gifted songwriter in the band. Stinson's songs aren't as incisive as Westerberg's, but they are solid rock & roll numbers, performed by a tight yet loose band. Although it's obvious that Bash & Pop have listened to their fair share of The Rolling Stones and the Faces, they don't recycle riffs, their sound is clearly good old-fashioned rock & roll, but the playing, songwriting, and Stinson's enthusiastic, ragged voice make the album sound fresh.
