5 Albums Box Set [Import]Artist: Buffalo Tom
UK five CD set from the Alt-Rock trio. When they released their first album in 1989, the Boston-based trio Buffalo Tom were written off as Dinosaur Jr. junior. Buffalo Tom began to develop their own style with their second album, 1990 s Birdbrain, which featured a noticeable improvement in songwriting. In 1992, Buffalo Tom released Let Me Come Over, a gritty set of driving Rock and achingly melancholy ballads; several of its tracks became alternative radio staples, including the gorgeous ballad 'Taillights Fade.' Despite an increased amount of critical praise and some radio airplay, the album didn t sell. The follow-up, 1993 s Big Red Letter Day, featured a more polished, radio-ready production, but the album received only a small push from radio and MTV. 'Soda Jerk,' the first single from the album, became a minor alternative radio and MTV hit. After a year-long tour, the group returned in the summer of 1995 with Sleepy Eyed, a return to the more direct sound of Let Me Come Over, following it with Smitten in 1998 before taking a decade long hiatus. Beggars Banquet.
