  • Where does one go after fronting one of the most influential American rock bands of the post-'70s era? How does one remain occupied after helping determine the sound and shape of alternative rock in the '80s, '90s, and 2000s? If the person is Bob Mould (whose group Husker Du is the mystery band referred to above; his follow-up band, the razory punk-pop act Sugar, wasn't too shabby either), he records solo albums. From the introspective acoustic-scapes of 1989's WORKBOOK to the electronic tendencies of 2002's MODULATE, Mould has continually pushed past the shadow of his legacy, venturing into new directions while still maintaining his mercurial rock edge.
  • 2005's BODY OF SONG bears many of the hallmarks of Mould's best work. The programming touches from previous efforts can still be heard, but the massive, guitar-dominated, full-band sound recalls Sugar circa COPPER BLUE (and there is a similarly metallic, full-saturation production style). As anyone familiar with Mould will expect, the songs are quite sharp too: they overflow with memorable, melodic hooks, introspective lyrics, and full-throttle passion. From the thunderous opener "Circles" through the plaintively confessional "Days of Rain" to "Beating Heart the Prize," the surging closer, BODY OF SONG is a welcome return to form for this rock icon.
Professional Reviews
Spin (p.103) - "[With] one of his most sublimely sincere songs, '(Shine Your) Light Love Hope,' which uses a filtered vocal and high-hat dance beat to get your heart pounding." - Grade: B-

Mojo (Publisher) (p.100) - 3 stars out of 5 - "The result is a guitar album, for definite....There's balance in the romance department...bringing a satisfying emotional evenness to BODY OF SONG as an overall listen."
