It’s hard to believe that it’s already been 25 years since The Gin Blossoms released “New
Miserable Experience”! Initially when it was released it received mediocre reviews and only minor sales, but
nearly a year later the single “Hey Jealousy” entered the Billboard Hot 100; and A&M
re-released the album. The album went on to sell nearly 5 Million copies.
I can’t tell you how much this album’s jangly, melodic Alt-Rock grooves and lyrical
desperation resonated with me! Especially Doug Hopkins lyrics full of heartbreak,
longing and despair. It’s truly tragic what happened to Doug. If you don’t know the story you can read about it here:
So, when I saw that SRCHiFi had come out with a 25th Anniversary Edition LP, naturally I had to order it!
