About: When the La’s released their debut album in 1990, it made immediate waves in the British pop scene, as well as American college radio. Drawing from the hook-laden, ringing guitars of mid-‘60s British pop as well as the post-punk pop of The Smiths, the La’s’ self-titled first album had a timeless, classic feel. It seemed like effortless music, but that was not the case. From their inception, lead singer/guitarist/songwriter Lee Mavers was a perfectionist with a nearly obsessive eye for detail. Consequently, the La’s were never able to totally fulfill their promise. *Stephen Thomas Erlewine
