iTunes Review

On Patch the Sky, veteran noisemaker Bob Mould once again marries light with dark, crafting catchy, seductive melodies and igniting them in a furious six-string squall. There’s driving, doomy, and dramatic alt-rock (“Hold On”); dangerous, pit-ready punk (“Losing Time”); and endless oceans of gorgeous, overdriven guitar (“Black Confetti”). "Lucifer and God" pulls heaven and hell together, mixing dreamy vocal parts with a blistering '90s-inspired din. By the time you reach the massive swell of the closing “Monument”—with its pounding, slow-burn crescendo—you’ll be shaken physically and emotionally.

Customer Reviews

Are we listening to the same thing?

Maybe my speakers and headphones are both broken but someone should get lynched. I don't have anything against BM but the production stinks. The vocals are overtaken by the guitar. You need to turn up that mic or turn down the guitar. It blurred his voice out of a bunch of songs. Unless that was the point. If I was bob. I would be upset with the job done to what seems to be a solid release.

Great album

Too many great tracks to list. The live show took it to another level.Thank you for a fantastic album, Bob.

Same as last time...

It's been a decade since Bob Mould has produced an album that's really interesting (Body of Song), and his "fans" blasted him for his two-album experiment with electronic music and silence. Since then he's been content with producing the same album time and again: heavy on guitars and noise, light on the melodic component that always made his songwriting a cut above his contemporaries. He always has one good song in him, and this time, "Voices in my Head" will please everyone, but those who have admired Mould throughout the years and got excited by what he might do next can only be disappointed here, because what he's done next this time is what he's done the last ten years or so. I like to think he still has something great in him, but unless and until he discovers something else, I'll stick to his excellent back catalog.
