(1993, Geffen)

An album that fell pretty quickly into ‘mockability’ due to the combination of its overly-earnest delivery and the terrible copycats that trailed in its wake, August is actually an incredible debut, an alt.country rock album that sounded like a million touchstones and like nothing else at all, all at the same time.
