Husker Du at their melodic best
Jay | 11/21/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)
""Zen Arcade" still may be the purest distillation of Husker Du's visceral sonic assualt, but "Wig" was the album that finally showcased Mould and Hart's unique melodic sensibilties. For those unfamiliar with the Husker Du legacy, "Flip Your Wig" is maybe their most accessible effort and a good place to start."Flip Your Wig" balances their trademark guitar roar with wonderfully catchy pop hooks to help create some garage classics (Makes No Sense, Flexible Flyer, Keep Hangin On) This combination of punk spirit and sing-song melody is certainly a familiar formula to children of 90's alt-rock, but at the time (1985) these guys were helping push the boandaries of rock music. Unfortunately, whereas Zen Arcades sound has held up well over the last 15 years, time probably will not be so kind to "Flip Your Wig". The production is horrific. At the time "Wig" was released it was considered a huge step up from the no-frills basement sounds of "Zen". Today it is "Zen" that sounds fresh and edgy, while "Flip Your Wig" is often dated with an 80's-era sludginess. What a shame. These are their best songs."
Another amazing album after Zen Arcade & New Day Rising

"It constantly blows me away how damn good Husker Du was. I mean, they played their music as if it could be everything at once -- the power of punk, the sheer melody of pop, and the emotions of alternative. And darned if they didn't succeed. This album is probably the best "introduction" to the Huskers from a normal rock fan's point of view -- not as sprawling as "Warehouse," but not as hard as ZA and NDR.Perfect songs: Every Everything. Makes No Sense at all. Green Eyes. Divide and Conquer. Games. Find Me. Flexible Flyer. I could listen to these beautiful powerful songs over and over. Husker Du were my Beatles -- brilliant fusionists, singers, songwriters, and performers. Here's why."
Huskers' best before the jump to WB

"I think that FLIP YOUR WIG is one of the strongest albums (non-concept, Zen Arcade is still >incredible"
