The Cool Blistering Warm Storm of the Huskers

thundercurtain

Still have never heard any other "loud" music like them. They turned white noise static into beauty even the Beatles couldn't have matched. Try 'em and see.

like most of it's era

As far as a full alblum goes yeah about 50% are classics the rest are okay. New day rising, 59 times the pain,how to skin a ct and books about UFO's are a must.

Overrated

Music-Master

I cannot begin to describe how overrated this album is. There is maybe 5-6 good songs and I could skip the rest. It would seem that most of the reviewers are listening to this through the ears of their youth. That's ok because I can relate, but 5 stars? That would be no. To each his own I guess...

i still liked it...

kajman

but it didn't move me as much as i'd hoped based on the other reviews. may need more time.

Awesome!

EMUSIC-00A07B9A

Catches Husker Du at a perfect balance between raw punk and experimentalism, and just before they headed off in a more pop-y direction. One of my all time favourite records.

New Day

aikicinema

One of the best albums ever recorded. And my personal Husker Du favorite. The only way to listen to this is straight through and loud.

My favorite Husker album

Mikaj

Perfect from start to finish - Mould's raw and crunchy wall of sound to Hart's noise-pop. If you need to try a single Husker Du album - get this one.

a sonic assault of indie punk that help put the town of Minneapolis on the map sorry Prince.

Hüsker's pop album

jolo

This was total pop for me back in the 80's. The off-kilter piano on Books about UFOs, Celebrated Summer, I Appologize, etc. If I had my way, these tracks would have ruled the airwaves back in 1984. This album launched a ton of bands, and you can definately hear the echos of this album in most of the pop-punk bands of today.

Angst at its best

EMUSIC-00C521E2

You can hear the pain and the tension from song one on this mini manifesto from the Huskers. The cover says it all: the sun is shining, but it's not, but it is...

Six Degrees of Green Day’s American Idiot

By Christopher R. Weingarten, Contributor

It used to be easier to pretend that an album was its own perfectly self-contained artifact. The great records certainly feel that way. But albums are more permeable than solid, their motivations, executions and inspirations informed by, and often stolen from, their peers and forbearers. It all sounds awfully formal, but it's not. It's the very nature of music — of art, even. The Six Degrees features examine the relationships between classic records and five… more »

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

For New Day Rising, the follow-up to their breakthrough double-album Zen Arcade, Hüsker Dü replaced concept with conciseness, concentrating on individual songs delivered as scalding post-hardcore pop. New Day Rising is not only a more vicious and relentless record than Zen Arcade, it’s more melodic. Bob Mould and Grant Hart have written tightly crafted, melodic pop songs that don’t compromise Hüsker’s volcanic, unchecked power. Mould and Hart’s songs owe a great deal to ’60s pop, as the verses and choruses ebb and flow with immediately catchy hooks. Occasionally, the razor-thin production and waves of noise mean that it takes a little bit of effort to pick out the melodies, but more often the furious noise and melodies fuse together to create an overwhelming sonic force. It’s possible to hear the rivalry between Mould and Hart on the album itself — each song is like a game of one-upmanship, as Mould responds to “The Girl Who Lives on Heaven Hill” with “Celebrated Summer.” Neither songwriter slips — both turn in songs that are catchy, clever, and alternately wracked with pain or teeming with humor. New Day Rising is a positively cathartic record and ranks as Hüsker Dü’s most sustained moment of pure power. – Stephen Thomas Erlewine
