Dreams So Real: Father's House (1986)
Opener "History" is an upbeat rocker, kinda reminiscent of Guadalcanal Diary; the guitars are big and boomy, though it lacks a truly compelling hook. "Heaven" is quieter, more melodic and brooding, calling to mind the legendary Winter Hours. "Drifting Away" is perky and catchy, one of the better tracks here, as is "(Maybe I'll Go) Today," each holding up well all these years later. "Capitol Mall" has a nice percussive vibe, shades of the Feelies (whose second album Buck also produced).
Here's an audio rip of the entire album:
