4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, if rambling, early outing from Bob Mould et al., 21 Aug. 2000

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Zen Arcade (Audio CD)
Where do I start? This originally double album is a treasury of Eighties proto-grunge. The band were proud that most tracks were recorded in one take. This makes for a mostly energetic and vibrant sound; none of your slick big production jobs here, and this in the era of Duran Duran and Peter Gabriel. The decision to include all the tracks in one release shows some lack of discipline, but this is in line with the punk ethos of the recording. Those who know Mould's subsequent work with Sugar, and solo, will know that he has changed his position somewhat on production values. Zen Arcade is a chance to hear where the later sounds evolved from. A must for fans of Sonic Youth, Nirvana or the Pixies. What are you waiting for?
