Album: Action Pact
. . .
Back in 1993, because of some decent reviews, I went out and bought Sloan’s debut album, Smeared, and probably because of the production values, was underwhelmed.
And so I promptly ignored them for probably 10, maybe 15 years, by which time they’d built up a pretty strong discography of power-pop albums. This is what happens sometimes, kids: you get a bad impression of a really good band, and it’s only much later you realize just how wrong you were.
