5.0 out of 5 stars Just Brilliant, 1 Jan 2006
it baffles me how this band aren't better known. best described as a mixture of the replacements and bruce springsteen, this latest album is quite simply the best album i have heard for years!! every song is fantastic both lyrically and musically, from the foot stomping opener 'the closer' to the ballad 'walt whitman bridge'. buy this album you wont regret it!!

5.0 out of 5 stars absolutly BRILLIANT!!!, 21 July 2005
This review is from: New Day Rising (Audio CD)
bob mould can claim to have writtin many classic albums with husker du and sugar but none as phenomenal as this one. it truelly changed music having a huge influence on almost all good punk and underground that came after it. this album also contains what i believe to be the greatest song ever, the ultumit punk rock epic "celebrate summer" which entwines electric and acoustic masterfully. other highlights include "if i told you", "i apologize", "fokelore", "59 times the pain", and "the girl who lives on heaven hill". this is a must buy album so please do so and if you love this as i do follow it up with "zen arcade" the excellent coceptual double album and "flip your wig" which is packed with pop gems.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Album Ever Made, 25 Mar 2005
This review is from: Spiderland (Audio CD)
The Most Breath takingly stunning album ever recorded! if you have a good taste in music this is worth buying no matter what other music you like. Spiderland isn't burdend with a degrading genre its too good for that.rising from the ashes of the young hardcore band "squirrel bait" slints first album, though impressive was released at the tail end of the 80s gaining little fanfare. its follow up "spiderland", slints second, final and massively influential concept album has been raised to near mythical status since its low key release in 91. it has never sold much just to the right people.
the most noticable thing about this album is the sheer intensity of the songs. recording was infact so intense that several of the band were later administered to a phyciatric hospital. a prime example of such intensity is found in the albums swansong "Good Morning, Captain" the albums best, most eerie song. as the song builds to its mind blowing conclusion it is clear something special is about to happen. lead singer/whisperer/shouter brian mcmahan, later of the palace brothers, goes through the most of the song creeply whispering the lyrics. then in one phenominal moment the song explodes as he lets out a mind blowing scream which he shouted so loud he was physicaly sick. it is an amazing end to an amazing album you must buy and givin time love.
