Let It Be
'Let It Be' is the third studio album by The Replacements, released on October 2, 1984 by Twin / Tone Records. After three releases of endearingly loud, fast rock and roll, the Replacements took a giant step forward without surrendering their raucous edge on 'Let It Be'. By then, leader Paul Westerberg had developed into a first-rate songwriter, capable of soul-baring introspection ('Unsatisfied'), wry character studies ('Androgynous') and frenzied, go-for-broke rock ('We're Coming Out'). 'Let It Be' caught one of America's most promising bands at an early creative peak, straddling the line between inspired amateurism and accomplished, deliberate craftsmanship.CD - The five unreleased bonus tracks include a home demo for 'Answering Machine,' a cover of the Grass Roots' 'Temptation Eyes' and an alternate 'Sixteen Blue'. Also included is a cover of T Rex's '20th Century Boy,' which was originally issued on the 12" maxi-single for 'I Will Dare.'
