by Big Dipper
Released: Oct 1990
The major label debut (and demise) of melodic Boston smarty-pants Big Dipper, Slam isn't all that fondly remembered by the band or fans. But it boasts one of the group's all-time-great tracks: the glorious, gleeful "Love Barge," which celebrates a relationship's wreckage. And anyone who likes clever wordplay, catchy choruses and loud guitars is bound to enjoy typical Dipper rockers such as "The Bond" and "Blood Pact."
