Editors’ Notes

At 47, Bob Mould isn’t growing mellow. The former Husker Du / Sugar leader still maintains his sonic edge with plenty of loud, aggressive guitar and a continued interest in the electronic manipulations of the recording studio. Mould likes heavenly reverbs and the occasional keyboard bed to expand his universe, but he never loses his ear for the song. With the help of Fugazi drummer Brendan Canty and cellist Amy Domingues, Mould balances between the natural punk momentum of his musical history and the emotional maturity that befits a man who has worked through personal pain to come to an inner peace. Songs still struggle with identity and life’s unexpected turns, but where Mould once mired in despair, he now finds escape hatches in the exquisitely contoured melodies of “The Silence Between Us,” “Who Needs to Dream?” and the six-minute album closer “Walls in Time.” Mould’s voice has never sounded better, offering bittersweet twists — a sandpaper scratch for “Stupid Now,” a smooth croon for “Shelter Me.” All musicians should age this well.

Customer Reviews

Nice Effort. Well worth picking up.

A nice, focussed effort from the get go. The opener sounds like he's putting on a clinic for the Avril/Sum 41s of the world, only better. Matrix eat your heart out. The rest of the album follows suit. He never loses sight of the song for the concept (save for the electronic Shelter Me), and the songs ebb and flow with shimmering guitars with a top rhythm performance. The trademark hint of melancholy in the melodies is poised well with the simple yet soaring vocals. Less is totally more. Some moments approach past Sugar greatness (for me at least). The lyrical angst from Bob projects past is replaced with optimism and simple honesty. Its nice to hear Bob evolving and branching out as a songwriter. Good work!
