Saw him a few nights ago

The_Lish_Beast

...at Porgy and Bess in Vienna. Helluva nice guy, and can definitely still rock out. "California Zephyr" is definitely worth a download, as is "Moon on the Water," the rest is definitley worth checking out.

10 years...for this?

It sounds and feels tossed off...much like his career. Chalk up another casualty to heroin.

GREAT ALBUM!!!

GEESNERVOUS

I just saw Grant Hart at The Middle East in cambridge on 01/11/10 and he was Great!!! And I bought this album on vinyl from him after the show...this is classic Grant Hart...He opened with You're the Reflection of The Moon On the Water and it just got better from there..although he looked homeless he can sure sing and play...download this NOW!!!

Surprisingly very good

I have a space in my heart for Grant Hart but his Nova Mob/solo work has been a bit disappointing. This album isn't. My favorite song is "Barbara" which I could see Husker Du doing (in probably a slightly different way). For aging music hipsters who loved Husker Du back in the day, this is a download well worth your limited eMusic points.

Icon: Husker Du

By Ira Robbins, Contributor

The three monumental bands who put Minneapolis on the indie rock map in the 1980s - the Replacements, Soul Asylum and Husker Du - all found greatness along the same path, climbing out of hardcore's narrow trench with ambitions far beyond the basics of simply railing against Reagan or bitching about school and cops. Of the three, Husker Du clung most tightly to punk's visceral force, but added sensitivity, melody or depth to the roar. Bob… more »

They Say All Music Guide

Years of addiction tend to obscure Grant Hart’s considerable strengths as a songwriter, a situation not helped by his erratic post-Hüsker Dü work. After 1999′s Good News for Modern Man, Hart drifted away, spending some time as a musician for hire but generally existing outside the spotlight, taking a full decade to return with Hot Wax, his third solo album and easily his richest collection of songs to date. Hart hasn’t abandoned the buzzing guitars that have defined much of his music since the days of Dü, but he’s certainly downplayed them, preferring to ramp up a latent Baroque pop obsession and spend some intimate, quiet intimate moments with just a keyboard or two. There’s variety here, and also craft, a bracing and overdue reminder that there were two excellent songwriters in Hüsker Dü. – Stephen Thomas Erlewine
