Bob Mould, the Husker Du and Sugar guy, has generally always been a guitar man but prior to the release of his 10th solo album the Silver Age had been dabbling in electronics. For fans of Mould and his big fat guitar sound, the Silver Age was a welcome return to the driving alternative rock he'd been best known for. It now gets a heavyweight silver vinyl re-issue on Demon.

After experimenting over the course of a few albums with more electronic and pop sounds, Bob Mould returns to his trusty ol' guitar driven alt. rock. For me , "Silver Age" comes as a breath of fresh air after some pretty patchy stuff. "Star Machine" is in stark contrast to the likes of "Modulate" and "Body Of Song" and is the kind of rock song that gets the blood pumping around your body. The title track is not unlike the Foo Fighters, but I'll let him off - it is Bob Mould after all. "The Descent" was the single chosen from the album and certainly has immediate impact - punchy and catchy and fairly typical of Bob Mould's work. "Angel's Rearrange" and "Keep Believing" are others that will please fans of his older stuff. I view this as pretty solid return to form from a true great.
