4.0 out of 5 stars Getting back to old form, 23 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Silver Age (Audio CD)
Bob Mould's musical output has been varied (to say the least!) over the last decade or so. Many fans took objection to his foray into electronica, and the arrival as Life and Times was a welcome return to form for them. His work on the Blowoff album had a mixed reception, although it was definitely an album of great songwriting, which showed that there was a great energy source still to be tapped.
This most recent album has a direct line to that energy source. A lot of Bob's more recent solo (guitar based) albums felt tired, going through the motions, with his voice sounding little more than a monotone drone; so to me, it seems as if the hiatus from his guitar has done him the world of good. Silver Age is guitar god Bob Mould back on form. The musicianship has never been in question; but now the spirit is back, and he uses his voice in ways that he hasn't since the days of Sugar. This isn't Copper Blue, and it certainly isn't Candy Apple Grey, but it is the first of his solo albums that I've really _wanted_ to listen to since Sugar.
