Biography

Bob Mould
Beauty & Ruin

“It’s a song cycle. A narrative. It’s nobody’s story but my own… I ran so fast from my past that I caught up with myself. This album is acknowledging that and dealing with every year getting a little tougher.”

Bob Mould’s new album Beauty & Ruin may very well be the most epic emotional roller coaster ever ... Read more in Amazon's Bob Mould Store

4.0 out of 5 stars Bob Mould - back to his Best 10 Sep 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Bob Mould charges back with his best album in nearly a decade. After the patchy 'Last Dog and Pony Show' and the clumsy 'Modulate', Bob Mould has returned to form with his best work in years. Some of the songs hark back to Sugar at their best - 'Underneath Days' and 'Beating Heart the prize' would not have been out of place on 'Beaster'. The album is superbly produced and sounds great. In some reviews of this album, people have commented about the electronic aspects, but don't worry, there is none of the messy experimentation that ruined 'Modulate'. There are only some effects on Bob's vocals on 'Shine Your Love Light Hope' and 'I Am Vision, I Am Sound' and they don't ruin these songs. The familiar Bob Mould guitar rush is back in evidence, and the lyrics focus on relationships - and what can go wrong with them. Highlights include 'Circles', 'Days of Rain' (which features some superb cello) and the moody 'Always Tomorrow'. I wasn't expecting much from this album, but I was pleasantly surprised and I have been playing it non-stop for the last few weeks. Bob Mould has returned to what he does best and made one of the albums of the year.

Well im not going to go on about Bobs credentials - your all here because you know who he is, and what he brings to mine and your music collection...
The new album is, i feel, a bit of a compromise/trial on the content of Bobs more modern works tied in with some of his old loves. Yes there are the ever so catchy guiter riffs, harmonies, long powerfull vocals that get you screaming along in your car (well i do anyways) and some new electronic bits and bobs (pun intended)...but these dont dominate like they did in 'Modulate'. They work into the songs as more of an accompanyment and they work very well i feel. Seems as though two paths are meeting here and seeing how they get on together and its good to see and great to listen to.
I was a bit uncertain about buying this album with out hearing it first, but it doesnt dissapoint...it took a few listens to get into it, but from then on it now makes regular features on my listening devices. Favourites include 'Gauze of Friendship' and 'Underneath Days'
No real big solo accoustic on this album a la 'Workbook' or heavy hitting lyrics like 'Black Sheets of Rain' but a nice melding of his latest styles and some of the old stuff that got me hooked all those years ago..

4.0 out of 5 stars Bob's triumphant return 3 Aug 2005
Format:Audio CD
Ok, let's just get one thing out of the way-Bob Mould is a legend, pure and simple. Few people can claim to have had so much influenced over guitar music since Bob first exploded out of a Minneanapolis basement in the early 80's with his first band, the seminal Husker Du. Albums like "Metal Circus", "Zen Arcade" and "New Day Rising" not only changed the face of punk rock, they took a hammer to it. Never before had a band so successfully married searingly loud and aggressive guitar playing with personal, introspective lyrics. Not only did Husker Du go against the grain of other hardcore bands like Minor Threat and Black Flag by wearing their hearts on their sleeve, they were also unafraid to drop a folk song or pyschedelia in between their usual power pop. Back then, the now annoyingly over-used phrase of "emo" hadn't been coined, but just about any band since then to plug in an electric guitar and attempt to play anything vaguely resembling punk rock with a bit of melody owes -at least indirectly- a debt of gratitude to Husker Du. Pixies, Nirvana and Foo Fighters are a few of the more high profile bands to show the Husker influence.
Following this bands tragic demise in 1989 amid acrimony, drugs and suicide, Bob released two folk-influenced solo albums, three albums with his band Sugar, and two more melodic folk rock albums following Sugar's break up.
However, in 2002 something a little strange happened. Bob released his first album in 4 years-"Modulate", an album which rather than being driven by Bob's trademark "swarm of bees" guitar sound, was heavily reliant on samples, electronica and drum loops. The common reaction was one of puzzlement. Bob then immersed himself in New York's dance scene, even earning himself a weekly DJ residency.
