TAS Rated 5/5 Music, 4.5/5 Sonics in the May/June 2022 Issue of The Absolute Sound!
By far the most revered album from the Boston kings of "low-rock," Cure For Pain placed eighth on the Alternative Nation site's Top 10 underrated 90s Alternative Rock Albums list. For the first time this title is remastered from the original source for the most immersive and sonically-mind blowing experience on wax to ever be available. In addition, Run Out Groove has expanded this to a deluxe 2LP set that includes new-to-vinyl B-Sides, as well as previously unreleased alternates and demos from the sessions.
Cure for Pain was unquestionably one of the best and most cutting-edge rock releases of the '90s.
The remastered Run Out Groove vinyl captures every delicious detail: the drums have plenty of snap, Dana Colley's sax is alternately viscreal and ambient, Mark Sandman's bass has real heft, and it's impressive that such a small band managed to achieve such a rich, full sound.
