Sonically, "Let Your Dim Light Shine," is every bit as good as Soul Asylum's breakthrough smash "Grave Dancer's Union," even if it doesn't contain a smash hit like the way-overplayed "Runaway Train." Unfortunately, some of the best songs here suffer from lyrics that are either laughable or offensive. The catchy single "Misery" is saddled with the baffling refrain "frustrated, incorporated," while "String of Pearls" has bizarre references such as the one to a a two-headed President. But the low point comes with the reference to a six-year-old hooker in the song "Eyes of a Child," which contains the album's prettiest melody.
Overall, this is a self-sabotaged follow up to a popular breakthrough album that helped to hasten Soul Asylum's rapid return to their previous obscurity which is a shame as most of the songs are quite good. Still, if you're the kind of person who doesn't care much about the lyrical content of an albumn, you'll find enough tunes to content you.
