iTunes 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

The Midas Touch

Although Bob has been around for what seems like forever he keeps delivering with fresh ideas creating timeless classics. Quality runs thoughout the album from start to finish. You can easily imagine 'Very Temporary', 'Stupid Now', 'Walls in Time', 'Again and Again' and the new single 'The Silence Between Us' being on any of Bob's other album releases during the past ten, fifteen years, and upon first listening you just know that you'll be playing them with glee in another twenty five. District Line is yet another return to form and a timely reminder that class is permanent.

Gold from the heart

An extraordinary album which justifies a tag of being inspirational and beautiful, an album which I will probably be listening to for the rest of this year now, new artists need not apply!

Class...

Form is temporary, class is permanent. There have been a few excursions along the way but Bob is back to doing what he does best. His voice is needy, urgent and powerful, the songs beautifully crafted and the production deftly complementary. Should really make a few people currently clogging up the music charts think about quitting and leav ing it to the experts...probably won't though.
