Bob Mould- Silver Age


is pretty much part II of this,



which is pretty much one of the best rock albums of the 90s.

That means this,



is guitartastic. With songs.

Like he did on this,

Nowhere near Copper Blue, and the first couple songs were underwhelming. But The Descent is classic Bob, and the rest is very enjoyable. Couldn't ask for too much more this far into his career.

The band just isn't as tight a unit as Sugar was.

a ton of my favorite records are from artists who'd be considered "long in the tooth." I'm guessing this'll be one of 'em. Certainlty on it's way. I've never subscribed to the idea that older=decline.

If you're Nick Cave, you only get better with time.

Yeah, I like a lot of albums from older artists. I think Bowie's Heathen is one of his best, and feel the same way about Dylan's Love & Theft.

And this still isn't a patch on Copper Blue, which IMO is one of the greatest albums ever recorded.

Cool. It kinda sounded like you had less expectations for older artists cause they were old.

"Slow Burn" just kills me. Pete Townsend rips on it.

2 geezers. 1 ace of a tune.

No, I have less expectations for Mould because he hadn't put anything memorable since The Last Dog And Pony Show, and none of his post-Sugar material came close to touching what he did with that band (even FU:EL).

And, you know, he's not Dylan. Or Bowie.

indeed. I've never listened to either of those for their guitar playing.

Just got back from the show at the Metro here in Chicago...

totally fucking awesome. bob mould is class. every song is so good.

played "copper blue" straight through, followed by a mixture of tunes from the new album (star machine, the descent, keep believing, etc..) and old husker du songs (sounded better than ever, especially with THIS band - they're fantastic). totally awesome.

were they tight?! hell yeah they were tight.

Wurster is one of the best rock drummers around - listen to some superchunk and you'll hear what he's all about. And Jason Narducy not only nailed all the bass parts, but he added really effective backing vocals - the chorus of "The Act We Act" sounded like Fleetwood Mac on Lasers and gasoline. they were locked in, dead on for all the starts and stops. awesome.

And Bob Mould is just a manic, crazy performer. He's super tall and awkward, and prowls around the stage pounding his guitar. He goes off the rails a little bit, and it's fantastic. sings his vocals with new melodies or whatever he wants, makes some string farts, makes some strings wail, then lands down hard on the 1 beat with a mean power chord, perfectly in sync with the rest of the band. yeah, they're plenty tight.

seriously, shclooper, it was awesome. you woulda loved it.
