5.0 out of 5 stars Sugar - reprise?, 2 Feb. 2013
This review is from: Silver Age (Audio CD)
I've folloewed Bob Mould since the glory days of 'Copper Blue' and during college 'Sugar' formed the staple part of my music diet. I don't need to discuss 'Copper Blue' or 'Beaster' as they speak for themselves, and whilst I've listened to every solo album since then, I've never heard one that smacks so much of the old days. Layered, textured sounds, merging over melodious rock riffs, raw and unpolished - it really sounds like 'Sugar' all over again. And that's a good thing. Stand out tracks for me are the brilliant 'The Descent' which could have been taken from 'Copper Blue' (yes, it's THAT good) and Silver Age, a rip rawing blister of a song. Mould's heavy lyrics add to the mood and what you are left with is a assault on the senses. A blistering rip-roaring clash of sounds that is totally unique and is charateristic of Mould's sound. I missed the recent 'Sugar' show due to work commitments, but hell, if he plays in the UK again, consider my ticket bought. 'Download' I hope you are listening......
