  • It's perhaps fitting that the cover art for Replacements's finest moment as a fully established studio outfit replicates an old folk compilation, since HOOTENANNY derives most of its drive from gleefully deconstructing good ol' fashioned rock & roll (a theme reiterated during "Mr. Whirly," their sort-of-rendition of the Beatles' "Oh Darling"). While HOOTENANNY is largely a gas and a goof, the pop panache buried beneath all the booze and post-adolescent bedlam is evident on the tight, catchy barnburner "Color Me Impressed" and Paul Westerberg's almost romantic lo-fi distortion ballad "Within Your Reach," which was later featured in the film SAY ANYTHING. It's this mix of songwriting maturity and snotty sarcasm that solidifies HOOTENANNY as an early classic in the Replacement's canon, and makes their uncensored amateurishness at the time--moments of in-studio chatter and almost pointless anti-jams like the surfy "Buck Hill"-- endearing and permissible. Rhino's superlative reissue includes informative liner notes from Twin/Tone co-founder Peter Jesperson, who also produced this new edition. Bassist Tommy Stinson himself helps mix the invigorating alternates and rough takes of tracks like "Ain't No Crime" and "Lovelines."
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (9/19/02, p.108) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...Rude, crude pleasures...These songs are where the young Kurt Cobain found his voice - and he wasn't the only one."

Q (6/93, p.120) - 3 Stars - Good - "...HOOTENANNY...saw Westerberg diversifying stylistically as he staked out what has since become his specialist lyric territory--a downbeat teen outsider angst heard in full flow on `Color Me Impressed'..."

Q (10/95, p.146) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...the group displayed humour and verve in equal amounts, although they were clearly tiring of playing punk..."

NME (Magazine) (4/23/93, p.30) - 7 (out of 10) - "...HOOTENANNY [is] a mellifluous sideways step full of R&B and country touches..."

Record Collector (magazine) (p.88) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[With] The Replacements' willingness to experiment with their material adding to the freshness of the record."
