Pleased to Meet Me
This isn't the best Replacements record. Probably not even the second best. Still, this was the pivotal album on which Paul Westerberg attempted to channel the chaos into a neat, radio-friendly package. The result, as one might expect, is a record full of contradictions. For radio-friendly, try "Alex Chilton" -- for chaos, give a listen to "Shooting Dirty Pool."
