It’s a “shame” this wasn’t reviewed yet. The first time I listened to the Lemonheads was back in the '90s on local Oklahoma station, ROCK 100.5 THE KATT. They played the song “My Drug Buddy”, and it fit well within the usual catalogue of nothing but the Black Crowes and Stone Temple Pilots. I guess Evan Dando did something right, because It’s a Shame About Ray caught alternative music’s mainstream attention, and the band went from being a college rock group to MTV darlings—at least for a little while. You see, these days Dando is traveling around the world, playing this album front to back. It’s a product of its time and meant something back then, but hopefully the jaded younglings of today can find something to latch onto themselves.
