The Replacements: Pleased To Meet Me (Sire)
Edwin Pouncey, New Musical Express, 9 May 1987
THE WELCOME return of the world's most talented buncha winos. This time the noise that Minneapolis's finest are making sounds like a celebration of sorts. Occasionally their leader Paul Westerberg wanders away from the party on his own to strum a ditty to the stars, where a tear catches in his throat like a fish hook, but for the most part Pleased To Meet Me is an open invitation to get well and truly intoxicated with The Replacements.
