Sophomore album from Grunge gatekeepers. Instead of signing to the major labels that were seeking to sign anything living in Seattle at the time, the band chose to stick to their indie roots and sign with Sub Pop. The move was the right choice for the group giving them plenty of room to breath and grow into a well respected set. Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge (named after a music school mnemonic) is only their second full length album but already saw the band experimenting with different instrumentation compared to their peers. The album is generally viewed as one of their best from band members and fans alike, and after one listen it's easy to hear why. This is just as much Nirvana as it is Modern Lovers. Out of print since its 1991 release, this 2009 reissue is a must. Recommended.
