In 2008, it was voted the sixth greatest Australian album of all time in The Age newspaper's 50 Greatest Aussie Albums poll.In October 2010, it was listed at No. 8 in the book '100 Great Australian Abums'. Hi Fi Way was You Am I's first release with new drummer Rusty Hopkinson (formerly of Nursery Crimes) after the departure of former drummer Mark Tunaley. It includes the singles "Cathy's Clown", "Jewels and Bullets" and "Purple Sneakers". Tim Rogers later said of the album, "I was really high and really drunk the whole time. My ambition for it was always huge, but we're more suited to a scrappier sounding thing, with the way that I sing and play guitar. We had seven days to make it, living in New York".
