R.I.P. Karl Mueller
One of the first albums A-D ever bought was Soul Asylum’s Grave Dancer’s Union, because everybody loved “Runaway Train.” The best album in their catalog by far was 1995’s Let Your Dim Light Shine, which was largely considered to be a disappointment but gave us at least two great singles in “Misery” and “Just Like Anyone” (which had that great video where Claire Danes plays a girl with wings, and for some reason everyone hates her). Though the band’s albums have fallen off a bit as of late (though “I Will Still Be Laughing” was a great late-career radio attack), their greatest hits comp is a doozy. Go ahead and pick it up and listen to it while you pour a little liquor out for Mr. Mueller.
