In 1992, Soul Asylum released Grave Dancer’s Union and had a massive hit with their single “Runaway Train”. Many people assume that it was their fist album, but they had released 3 independent albums and 2 major label albums prior. My brother may have been the only person I knew who actually owned any of then. He had a copy of And the Horse They Rode In On.
Their follow up album to Grave Dancer’s Union was Let Your Dim Light Shine and carried on much in the same vein as it’s predecessor but without quite as much success. It’s hard to top “Runaway Train”. But “Misery” did earn a Weird Al parody.
This overlooked final track on the album is one of my favorites.
