iTunes Editors’ Notes

Bob Mould's second power trio, Sugar, only recorded two official studio albums (Beaster was an EP of excellent outtakes from Copper Blue). Each of those releases is filled with the bristling attacks that made Bob infamous as a member of the legendary Hüsker Dü. Mould's guitar tone is sheer beauty, a harmolodic blend that yields results beyond the actual notes. Couple that with his pop sense, and you've got a perfect guitar-pop band with a true rock edge. That this music is considered "alternative" was a result of an industry in confusion. Had tunes like "Your Favorite Thing," "Gee Angel," and "Can't Help You Anymore" been released in the late '60s instead of the '90s, they'd be considered purebred rock 'n' roll. "Panama City Motel" pulls back the volume for a ballad. "Believe What You're Saying" adds a western twinge. "Explode and Make Up" explores Mould's emotionally riveting forlorn side. The deluxe edition adds b-sides and a 1994 live show that reminds us of what we missed—or have been missing for years. Sugar was one of the best power trios of any era. 

Customer Reviews

Bob Mould

Definitely a must to anyone who not afraid of a little guitar. I've been fortunate to see Bob Mould live many times. Having a Live bonus disc is great. If you like this album, also check out Copper Blue, Workbook and Poison Years. Lets not forget his time with Husker Du. Catch him live if you can.

Sugar can do no wrong

Imagine albums where every single song is as good as the next. Sugar crushes every song with big, sweeping guitar that rings like a giant chorus of massive church bells. Bob Mould's vocals connect with a deep growl - never harsh, but always powerful. After a few listens, the lyrics and layering become more evident and engaging. The remasters are great. I recommend for Workbook, Copper Blue, and Warehouse. I deeply regret not buying these CDs in my youth.
