After the demise of the once-mighty Husker Du, Bob Mould’s musical career hit rough times. Arguments with record companies broke out, a series of patchy solo releases followed and it seemed that the most venerable founding-father of post-punk and alternative rock (whatever “alternative rock” means since “alternative” IS now the mainstream) was adrift. Even despite having achieved some critical success for his solo work, commercial success never came and Mould’s search for musical fulfilment was not yielding many answers.
When “Copper Blue” was released at the very apex of the rave era, the nation was wringing its hands over all things to do with music “characterised by the emission of a succession of repetitive beats” and the music press was obsessing over the handbag-hardcore schism. Only a few people sat up and listened to the news that Mould was back.
There’s no doubting that Creation Records (and of course Rykodisc, Sugar’s US label) knew they had something remarkable in their hands. But when the roar, power and heartbreaking intricacy of Bob Mould’s wall-of-guitar had reached such exquisite fruition as on this magical album, word soon began to spread: Bob Mould was back, Back, BACK and had served the ace that everyone thought he might one day be capable of.
Creation was, of course, still “only” an indie label and did not have an enormous corporate promotion budget to throw at it. Coming hot on the heels of Mould’s solo career and having none of the youth, boyish looks or swaggering gobbiness of the other big-noise bands of the time, Sugar were still a risky proposition.

If you never thought heavy rock music could be melodic then you should buy this album and be amazed. From the out and out rock of The Act We Act to the sheer delight of Man In The Moon this album will enthrall and delight. The heavy numbers such as The Slim grow but the instant access numbers such as If I Can't Change Your Mind, Changes, Helpless and Hoover Dam never become tiresome. At times Bob Mould sounds like Sting during the best Police songs (Particularly Changes). What came after paled into comparison. Not because it wasn't equally excellent but because it never delivered on each and every song with each and every note like this. Husker Du may have died but the more melodic, accesable Sugar overshadowed them. When Nirvana and company were inventing themselves the originator out-thought them all and delivered a never to be forgotten classic.

Terrific songs smothered in guitars from start to finish. Changes and Helpless are awesome but there's not one weak song here. The album came out at the same time as Nevermind which might explain why its been overlooked by so many, not that I think Bob Mould is too bothered by that. Copper Blue is a man at the top of his game. If he'd wanted to he could have become a massive star with this record but he didn't - and thats why his music sounds so good. He does it the way he thinks it should be done and it comes from the heart.
The simplest and strongest recommendation I can give is that Copper Blue is my favourite album of all time, bar none.

Essential post punk listening. Husker Du inspired Nirvana, when Husker Du folded Bob Mould formed Sugar. This is a tuneful alternative rock album which any self respecting music fan should own. Buy this CD now and moan to someone who gives a toss if you don't like it!

I'm glad that guy wrote that below.

it proves that the vast majoity of people who go onto Amazon to leave review does so coz they love the album - Its good that you get a mixture of opinons. Not many people go on to rate an album they didnt like that much.

personally i love this one - it is a genre classic - for me it is one of the peaks of the early 90's guitar lead rock. if you like nirvana/foo fighters you'll probably like this too. altough theyre not as angst ridden as Nirvana and not as commercial as foo fighters.

i was 18 the first time i heard it in a 2nd hand store in leeds. I thought it was REM - i always liked REM i just wished they'd rock out a bit more.

Well thats what i thought it was - a new album by REM with some louder guitars. The guy told me it was sugar and i had heard about them so bought his last copy.

Its a great album, full of enough noise to satisfy the grunge lovers and enough melody to keep those that like a hook happy.

The reviewer below is correct - its down sides is that it can sound a bit samey, the production is a bit sketchy and there is only one exception from full out rock on the album.

Its not got 5 stars in that it is one of the all time classics in the world ever but it is certainly one of the best alt/rock albums you can find.

Buy if you love alt/rock.

I bought this album on the strength of 'If I could change your mind' - a brilliant track - but there are plenty of other high spots, most noticeably ' Hoover dam'.
Great stuff, especially the guitar work. love it.
