Like their 1989 album Up to Here, Fully Completely is considered by the Hip's fans as one of The Tragically Hip's best albums, and a classic Canadian album. Also like Up to Here, many of the songs are still played in regular rotation on various formats of Canadian radio. Fully Completely represented a large step away from the band's originally blues-inspired sound. Lyrically the album alternates between pessimism and despair: "Locked in the Trunk of a Car" is written from the perspective of a serial killer, and "Courage," perhaps the album's most popular cut, seems to detail the thoughts of a person who cannot decide whether or not to commit suicide. In the music video, Gordon Downie wears a Boston Bruins jersey that was made by his mother. Some of the songs are inspired by real, predominately Canadian, events - "Fifty Mission Cap" is about Bill Barilko, who played for the Toronto Maple Leafs before he disappeared in 1951, and also cites imagery related to Canadian bomber crews in the Second World War. "Wheat Kings" is about David Milgaard, who was wrongfully convicted of murder in the 1960s. The title of "Pigeon Camera," amazingly enough, literally refers to pigeons with cameras attached to their legs that were used (mostly unsuccessfully) in the First World War as tools for aerial observation. 1989 (MCMLXXXIX) was a common year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar. ... Up To Here is the first full-length album by Canadian rock band The Tragically Hip. ...

The album, however, does have a reputation for sounding technically poor, a problem that worsens as the quality of the machine it is being played on increases; most tracks seems muted and quiet. It is unclear if this problem originated in production or manufacturing. Courage, Looking for a Place to Happen, At the Hundredth Meridian, Locked in the Trunk of a Car, Fully Completely, and Fifty Mission Cap are all featured on Yer Favourites. These songs were digitally remastered, like the rest of the songs on the album, and are heard as they should have sounded, with cymbal crashes hears clearly and background vocals being louder.


All songs were written by The Tragically Hip.
