Tre anni dopo, i 10,000 Maniacs tornano con Our Time In Eden, che ne rilancia le sorti grazie a episodi freschi e seducenti, come la ballata di "Stockton Gala Days" (nel solco dei Rem) e la sonata atmosferica di "Noah's Dove" e la melodia accattivante di "These Are The Days" (uno dei loro massimi hit).
