Morphine's first release, and certainly worth having. The only problem is its lo-fi production and execution; Dana Colley's saxophone in particular is extremely hard to hear, and if you don't listen to this at high volumes then it's barely noticeable. This poor mixing is present through the whole album, simply making it harder to listen to. Still, Morphine's unique low rock sound comes through, shining brilliantly on the first five songs. The song Good is plain good, The Saddest Song is fitting for its name as well, so laid-back and cool at the same time. Claire is probably the best song of the bunch, delivering an abstract structure simultaneously with a great chorus of the band simply crooning with more and more emotion each time. Have A Lucky Day is extremely chill and outgoing at the same time, also comical and suited with great poetry about gambling. You Speak My Language and Test-Tube Baby amplify the band's style to fast-paced, low-key directions, and the last song(s), I Know You, are even more jazzy and soft. The set is somehow very simple yet not very comfortable at first; its brilliance lies tucked under its softness. It's definitely "Good", but I must warn, it's probably the worst Morphine album to listen to first.
