Husker Du - Zen Arcade
Underneath the ferocity, the abrasiveness and the letís-call-it-raw production of HŁsker DŁís ďZen ArcadeĒ lay absolutely fantastic songs. Masterminds Bob Mould and Grant Hart were uncompromising to each other as well as to the world. They didnít always see eye to eye, but they pushed each otherís creativity, culminating in a monster of an album. 23 songs. Itís a tour de force, steeped in hardcore but too ambitious to be confined by genre boundaries. The birth of alternative rock.
