What a great record! I’m a huge MDID fan and feel lucky to have seen them live. I own a lot of their releases but honestly was not very aware of this release until recently, and I think it’s right up there with the best of the band’s albums. Not easy to find but it’s definitely worth the price if you can find it.

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
