Released:
Label: RCA RECORDS LABEL
Hum are a lot like Smashing Pumpkins and Poster Children in how they blur the distinctions between alternative pop and hard rock. As a matter of fact, You'd Prefer An Astronaut is quite influential in this regard; its blend of shoegaze-informed fuzz and bashing rhythms has inspired many an act, including Deftones (who just love professing their love for Hum). The big hit is, of course, "Stars." But there's not a bad track here. The dour "Suicide Machine" (and its half-spoken lyrics a la Codeine) is a particular highlight, so is "The Pod," which just might be the record's heaviest moment.
