Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We? (1993)

“Dreams” charmed me so much for so long, that I had infrequent daydreams of proposing marriage(to noone in particular) during the appropriate point in the song.  It lingered, you could say(A little song title humor there).  But some songs just age better than others, and I’ve had little use for this entire album for quite a while now.  If you’ve never heard “Dreams”, you should.  But do it off someone else’s album.
(“Dreams”)

Grade: C

No Need To Argue (1994)

A bit jarring in points after their debut sleeper(very relaxing, that is), this album boasts songs that sound as good today as they did in ’94.  Which isn’t really good enough…but they’ve improved, no doubt about that.
(“Zombie”, “Ridiculous Thoughts”)

Grade: B-
