Pony Express Record is a 1994 album by the Washington, D.C.-based post-hardcore group Shudder to Think. It was their first album to be recorded for Epic Records. Although switching to a major label from the independent Dischord Records shocked and alienated some fans of the group, Pony Express Record proved to be a challenging release, mixing musical styles as diverse as jazz, art-rock, glam, post-punk, noise rock and folk. It is also regarded as one of the most underrated albums of the 1990s, and has received considerable critical acclaim.Pitchfork Media placed the album as #29 on their original 1999 issue of Top 100 Albums of the 90s. In 2014, the album placed #7 on the Alternative Nation site's "Top 10 Underrated 90’s Alternative Rock Albums" list.
