CD Reviews

This CD blows me away - always has, always will !!!!

"First off, Anton Fier's drumming, especially on "Sacrafice (Let There Be Peace)" is absolutely ferocious. Truly amazing. Must have been a sight to see.To be honest, this is one of my favorite albums of all time. That, and "Workbook" are too good to pass by. Husker Du was okay, but technically, this stuff is lots better. The stuff Bob did with Sugar was technically better, but "Black Sheets" and "Workbook" will hold up over time much better than "Copper Blue" and "File Under..."This is a cult-level CD, yet it surpasses classic cult stuff, like classic LPs by the 13th Floor Elevators, Chocolate Watch Band, Music Machine, MC-5."Black Sheets of Rain" is a masterpeice."
Pretty Intense isn't the word for "Black Sheets"

"To listen to "Black Sheets of Rain" you need a good set of ears. Then, you have to crank your stereo up to high volume. Anything less, and you won't get it.I would imagine that this CD is probably a high point in Bob Mould's career. This is powerful stuff. A great songwriter and technically proficient guitarist, Mould's lryics are sometimes apocalyptical and thought-provoking:So don't send me invitations to your big parade
Place of residence unknown
In my eyes there is no confidence
There is no calm before the stormI agree: Anton Fier's drumming really makes "Sacrafice (Let There Be Peace)" take on a life of its own - because it's not straight 4/4 time - The rythm really drives."Black Sheets" and "Workbook" are really companion pieces. Both are great CD's and I am sure that these great recording will stand the test of time."
His best work

"Bob Mould's "Black Sheets Of Rain" is one of the best recordings I've ever heard. From beginning to end, every song is powerful and moving in its own way. The stuff Bob does now is okay, not bad, I still dig it. But Black Sheets, Workbook(1989) and Copper Blue (with Sugar, 1992) are just amazing recordings."
