When the Cranberries came out a few years later I recall everyone saying that they (the Cranberries) were that other Irish band that sounds like the SUNDAYS, and now the SUNDAYS have slipped away.  I really like this album and WILD HORSES is brilliant on this album.  Thanks Bill Music can bring back such great memories.

Yup. The '90s. This album was released on this date in 1990. Nice timing!

The only indie album I ever bought - partly because a girl in our student house had a habit of playing it several times a day.

oops, tell a lie...    Hull 4, London 0 also made it into my collection.

I remember when I saw the Sundays in concert in Dallas shortly after they released this album.  We demanded they come back out for an encore.  They thanked the crowed and then explained that they had run out of songs to play for us.  So they played this song again.  It was a great show.  Their later albums were also good.  Seemed like a nice group of folks too.

The music gives the illusion of happy - but IMHO, the lyrics are anything but.  This album is filled with songs that have dark meanings wrapped in a totally enjoyable package (10,000 Maniacs also do a good job with this emotional-wolf-in-sheep's-musical-clothing approach) - but not so sugary and pop-y that its disgusting.  (although I know some on this thread will disagree, which is fine)

Love the Sundays, love this album.

ah, I was in college in Santa Barbara when this came out in 1990 leading quite a lovely, rather naive, charmed life. Amazing to hear it 23 years!?  later with a bit of experience. ;)
