4.5 superbBrendan M. | August 13th 14

Well, the end was coming rapidly for Husker. Being a post-hardcore band on a major label with conflicting songwriters, their end was rather understandable and their career fantastic. As they went on, their sound became more and more layered, accessible, and tuneful due to the maturity of songwriting Mould and Hart would gain from continued experience. Starting as a blistering hardcore punk band, they soon made the right choice and focused on the musicality of their sound. They maintained the speed for a while, but once Flip Your Wig came out, the change had truly happened; Husker Du became an alternative rock band. They still kind of had the punk sound, but like Fugazi, it mostly became aesthetic and lyrics more than the fake sound many had crafted. Luckily, the final album from Husker Du is one of their best though; in fact it tops both Flip and Candy. They decided to create another double album, but more in the vein of The White Album than Zen Arcade in terms of layout. What I mean is that this album doesn't flow like a concept record, it's a free-for-all. This is an album just as creative, emotive, and lyrically conscious as their past material, despite conflicts within the band. The big change though is the sound is even more layered, featuring xylophones, acoustic guitars mixed in with electric ones, and walls of guitar effects. The end result? A truly fantastic note to end on. It's easily one of their most accessible albums, although the length may draw some away. Still though, this is essential to anyone interested in alternative rock. 4.7/5
