Reviews

Minneapolis trio hits all the right notes on sophomore album that should alert modern rockers who skipped the first release. Keen sense of melody and dynamic instrumental punch key such strong numbers as “Subway”, “Shine”, and “Disappear”, all of which might win favor with listeners who recall the tuneful energy of the Replacements and other fondly remembered Twin Cities post-punkers. – Billboard (June 6, 1993)


“Bareback Ride is an absolute gem of an album, an exhilarating example of just how cool American college rock can be.” – Kelly Cornwall, June 1, 1993. Read the full review on Fast n’ Bulbous.


Walt Mink are not hard-core, but are nontheless a fantastic band. I guess you could describe their sound as alternative. Some tracks are hard, while others are acoustic. Definitely a keeper. – Satisfaction Guaranteed 2 (1993)


You ever heard one of those bands that’s just dying to be liked? These guys seem to be the epitome of such a notion, as this album is not exactly filler but no killer either. It’s pleasant, yet too much of pleasantness like “Tree in Orange” and the Rush-esque “Subway” can get a bit monotonous. They mean well, and that’s the clincher. – Stink Face 3 (1993 Summer)
