Paul Westerberg: 14 Songs (Sire/Reprise) ***

Holly George-Warren, Rolling Stone, 8 July 1993

"DO YOU remember me long ago/I used to wear my heart on my sleeve," Paul Westerberg sings on 'First Glimmer', the second of 14 Songs, the ex-Replacement's debut solo album. The bittersweet lyric recalls an innocent early love, but it also describes Westerberg's past approach to songwriting.
