CD Review: Bob Mould 

Silver Age (Merge)

Bob Mould had a hell of a midlife crisis, farting away his late 30s and most of his 40s on disappointing acoustic and electronic albums. The Hüsker Dü and Sugar frontman made a welcome return to guitar-based, hook-filled indie rock on 2009's Life and Times, and continues the upswing on Silver Age. He hasn't sounded this vital in 20 years, especially on "The Descent," which wouldn't sound out of place on one of his old bands' albums.
