Bob Mould - District Line

Release Date: 02/05/08
Genre: Alternative Rock

One of my early favorites when I first heard it back in February. I never heard of Hüsker Dü prior, so I won't compare.

Review: He has a good old man voice. Good first song with "Stupid Now." Nice and friendly and catchy for radio. I thought it was a safe soft rock song. The next three basically carried that and it's gentle to take in. "The Silence Between Us" sounds like a stand out hit. Everything else is okay. He sounds like what you expect from a mid forties guy.

Summary: A standard soft rock album.

Key Tracks: Stupid Now, The Silence Between Us
Rating: 6/10
