My Dad Is Dead remains one of indie rock's best-kept secrets. Retrospectively, this 1989 double-album "The Taller You Are, The Shorter You Get" marks a time when bands like the Pixies & Dinosaur Jr. were beginning to garner critical acclaim.Though they (Or He) never received as much notice.The songs eventfully employ various musical styles ranging from acoustic folk, driving post-punk, Indie Garage, Seattle sound grunge & even R.E.M. pop, which prevents the album from ever becoming monotonous add the levels of Moody Grunge Distorted Guitars & It all jest Works ... Moreover, There's a strong Joy Division in a Sleep-Walk with R.E.M. influence present on this album ... From Punk to Post Punk To indie Folk Pop (It's a Whirlwind roller-coaster) This album remains 1 of the best 1980s albums that you've probably never heard ... YET
