Has Aged Well
While the DS deserved the tremendous hype that the followed DofW&R, the backlash came hard with this their 2nd full-length release and first for a major label. And as much as I loved (and still love) DofW&R, in my mind Medicine Show has aged better and is more listenable today. Perhaps my ears have aged, but this album is less derivative of the VU, more mainstream perhaps, but no less searing. And, at times, scary. Check out Burn... a suburban nightmare.
