The debut album, recorded by the original four-piece Wedding Present line-up alongside guest vocalist Amelia Fletcher of Talulah Gosh / Heavenly and produced by Chris Allison, works brilliantly as an accessible, if at times gut-wrenching, introduction to The Wedding Present. It was popularized by fanzines, late night radio and word-of-mouth. It was spawned by a provincial, unglamorous group and centres around universally relatable subject matter, conveyed in bluntly matter-of-fact terms.

It would be nearly impossible to name the standout tracks, since the band's strength lies in the fact that every tune is so solid: it should suffice to mention "Everyone Thinks He Looks Daft", "My Favourite Dress", and "Anyone Can Make a Mistake" - then remember that nearly every song on the album is just as good as those that have been picked out as singles.
