An unfortunate result all around, because, arguably, Downward Is Heavenward isn't merely the group's best album, but a lost classic of '90s rock, period. Taking their sense of the epic and the equal but opposite sense of the tender and personal to striking new heights, the quartet finds a remarkable balance throughout between world-shaking arrangements and gentle connection.

HUM are: Jeff Dimpsey Bass, Vocals Tim Lash Guitar, Vocals, Voices Bryan St. Pere Drums, Vocals Matt Talbott Guitar, Vocals. Released in 1997, this is HUM's final album, and it is often called their masterpiece (though, to be fair, this is the only release of theirs that I've heard). All Music Guide has called this album a "lost classic of '90s rock. I would have to say that I tend to agree with this. I had never heard of them until very recently, and now I'm angry that I was not let in on this little secret
