Hüsker Dü frontman Bob Mould’s second solo album Black Sheets Of Rain has all the crucial Mould tropes in place: a thick and heavy guitar sound and his slightly-pushed-back-in-the-mix drawling vocals. The album was recorded with two former members of Pere Ubu too! 25th anniversary remastered reissue on Demon.

- Black Sheets Of Rain by Bob Mould
8/10 Jack 20th December 2015
Bob Mould's first solo release, Workbook, defined Mould as an intelligent, complex songwriter and musician. Black Sheets of Rain, while fiercer and more electric guitar-driven than the folk-oriented Workbook, is no less intelligent - stylistically and lyrically. Mould manages to capture his trademark reflective side and still tear the house down with quality heavy punk and rock and roll. Mould, in my book, is the thinking person's guitar god with vision: brains with brashness, depth with D chords, soul with the sound and fury of pure rock and roll.
