No real Soul Asylum thread. Who is a fan (I know some of you are) and what is their best work? First rate Minneapolis 80's alternative band or second rate after Husker Du and The Replacements? Other opinions? I have to say I am coming from almost complete ignorance about them. I know Runaway Train, but that was it. I didn't know them from Collective Soul. They were popping up on the best bands of the 80s thread (how I knew there are some fans here). I checked them out a bit a my first thought was that they sounded a bit like Husker Du. One Wikipedia later and sure enough they came out of the same scene. That's all I know.
