iTunes Review

With Husker Du and Sugar, Bob Mould kept his guitars on 11 as he sweetened the deal with sweet melodies that belied an interest in a pop music much lighter than his crippling electric guitar attack. From there, Mould put the scare in his rock guitar-based audience by turning to elements of electronica for 2002’s Modulate. However, it seems to have been a building block, an opportunity for Mould to learn a few new tricks, because he puts a few unique lessons into the follow-up, 2005’s exemplary Body of Song. From the opening charge of “Circles,” Mould sounds like a man on a mission and the electronically manipulated vocoder-pitch corrected vocals on “(Shine Your) Light Love Home,” “I Am Vision, I Am Sound” and “Always Tomorrow” reflect this interest in bringing his earth-based concerns to future galaxies. Backed by a small, tight ensemble, Mould wastes few notes and his songwriting takes precise focus. “Underneath Days,” “Days of Rain” and “Best Thing” were among his strongest tunes in years and point towards a new resurgence for the vaunted songwriter.

Customer Reviews

Biased Review:)

First, a disclosure, I love Bob. I have loved Bob since I was 20 years old, and I am, well, lets just say I could easily have a 20 year old! And as an avid Husker Du fan who wishes all those problems would be resolved to iTunes could get the HD music up, I was thrilled when this album came out. It is not "the same" as the last, nor any of the others. This one is all his own. So some die hards will find what they like, new listeners will find what they like. And I get another New Bob Mould album. It is hard to describe Bob Mould to the unconverted, but suffice it to say that he is like nothing else you have ever heard, and he is a master of that. His songs hone the art of pain to a sharp point, and you can, at times, feel his pain. His music has always spoken to me. I wish a whole new generation will now "discover" Bob, and that iTunes will get Husker Du, so all those young kids out here will see where bands like Green Day got their inspiration! (PS, no hate mail, I love Green Day too!)

Bob Mould is the real deal!

Although his diehard fans know that Bob Mould has never left the music scene, this album announces to the rest of the world that "Bob is BACK!" Covering the range of styles that span his diverse career, Body of Song is an infectious reminder of what rock and roll can be. Great songwriting, great musical ability, great fun! When's the next one Bob? We'll be waiting.

great album

buy it now. I bought it when it came out and still listen to it and enjoy it...more and more.
