Yuck's 2011 self-titled debut contained, at most, two great songs—opener "Get Away" and "Shook Down." The remaining 12 were middle-of-the-road Ride rewrites and other one-dimensional distillations of the "'90s sound." These flaws notwithstanding, it was a really significant record, and here's why: Yuck were arguably the first turn-of-the-decade blogosphere darlings to heavily reference Dinosaur Jr., the Creation Records roster, and classic emo. Consequently, they've spearheaded what some critics have gone on to dub the '90s revival, an admittedly lame term that would have seemed culturally alien in the music press only a few years ago, but is now related to seemingly every band with quiet-loud dynamics and fuzzy predilections. Yuck released their follow-up, Glow and Behold, last fall, and it's ultimately much better and more consistent than the debut, even if it lacks a big rock anthem like "Get Away." MORGAN TROPER
