7/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 6th August 2015
Bob Mould had a bit of dodgy patch with the two albums preceding this: “Body Of Song” and “Modulate” on which he was experimenting with electronic music. It has to be said “Soundonsound” from the latter was great, though. He hasn’t completely let go of that experimentation for this album, “Shelter Me” for example, is just awful. However, there are plenty of Bob Mould-ish moments on here to like. The album is mostly of a good standard but the stand-out track is “The Silence Between Us” which is everything you’d expect from a Bob Mould Song, which is what you want from a Bob Mould song. “Old Highs and Lows” has a synth break in it akin to “Hoover Dam” from “Copper Blue”. “Return To Dust” is also more-or-less what you’d hope for from him. The closing track “Wall In Time” is an outtake from “Workbook”, his debut solo album from 1989. It is an acoustic-led song which he was doing quite a lot of at the time following the noise of Husker Du and serves as good ending.
