First Appeared in The Music Box, March 1995, Volume 2, #3
Written by John Metzger
Preceeded by a pair of gritty albums on the Sub Pop label, Bakesale is Sebadoh's first attempt at seeking a wider audience. It all comes together for the group on this one, from the Kinks-like License To Confuse to the style of Neil Young & Crazy Horse (there he is again!) on Careful, Not a Friend, and just about every other song on this disc. There's even a few tracks that are surprisingly not turning up on pop radio, like Magnet's Coil, Got It, and Dreams which fit right in with many of today's alternative tunes from the likes of R.E.M. to Weezer. In fact, Sebadoh does it better!
Bakesale is available from Barnes & Noble.
