For all those people who have heard that Bob Mould and Grant Hart had a history, this album will let them know in no uncertain terms what that history comprised of. As with all Husker Du albums, it is possible to hear the various complexities that each of the aforementioned talents liked to explore, but nowhere is it more finely shown than on this album. From the punk sounds of "Broken Home, Broken Heart" and "Newest Industry" that were the trademark sound of Husker Du, to "Never Talking To You Again" that was to light the way for Grant Hart's work with Nova Mob, and on to "Turn On The News" & "Somewhere" which portend Bob Mould's solo work and subsequent work with Sugar. For a true insight into some of the music emerging from the American punk scene of the Eighties, your record collection should not be without this (almost!) groundbreaking album.
