Editorial Reviews

This Deluxe Version is a limited edition box set that includes Body of Song plus a 9 song bonus disc & special artwork & pictures. Bob Mould returns to his signature guitar sound and songwriting style with Body of Song, his first release on Yep Roc Records. Mould's sound inspired a generation of post-hardcore punk rockers who helped create and define the alternative rock movement. Written and recorded mostly over the course of the past year, Body Of Song is Mould's first new album-length release since 2002, and his first since the mid-90s to employ a guitar-heavy full-band approach ('Paralyzed,' 'Circles'). Guest musicians include Brendan Canty (Fugazi), David Barbe (Sugar), Matt Hammon (1998 Bob Mould Band), and Amy Domingues (Garland Of Hours). 2005.

Format: Audio CD
As a "return to form," this is rather timid and tepid. Sorry for the loaded adjectives -- I will give its praise before I discuss its shortcomings.

It is definitely reaffirming to hear Bob Mould put out a (mostly) guitar-based album after the debacle of "Modulate." Not that "Modulate" was entirely without merit, but it is not in any way easy to listen to. It seems forced and calculated and aimed at quite a different audience than "Black Sheets of Rain" or "Copper Blue" or "Beaster." Bob had to know his average fan was not much of an electronica listener, after all!

"Body of Song," long rumored to be an all-acoustic project, has been in the works for years. Mould even refered to it indirectly as his "Nick Drake album" on the interview disc included with "Last Dog and Pony Show."

The resulting album is far different -- and not necessarily in a bad way -- than what it was built up as all these years. Face it, if he was not feeling motivated to put out an all acoustic album, it's probably better that he didn't. His stripped down material works best when it has the same passion behind it as his eardrum-shredding electric guitar work. And to it's credit, "Body of Song" has some great acoustic-dominated moments -- most notably "Nihil" on the bonus disc.

The remainder of the electric guitar songs are solid and decently rewarding. One can easily hear the maturity in his singing voice -- and simultaneously miss his old multi-tracked whine and its gripping pathos. "Body of Song's" vocals are clear, up front in the mix, and ever-so-slightly dispassionate. That, and a bit of the production trickery from "Modulate" has lingered -- vocals echo, ping-pong from speaker to speaker, and shimmer drenched in vocoder and other effects.

For those of you who have had the good fortune of following Bob Mould's career since the early 80's, and have enjoyed all the twist and turns of of his musical life, this album will encompass all of it. Husker, Sugar, accoustic, dance... all here all good. Embrace the diversity. Great Album

I have been a fan since the 80's: being floored by Rolling Stones Album of the Year (1987) "Warehouse Songs and Stories" (Husker Du; "Zen Arcade" is excellent as well) awed by seeing Bob perform "Workbook" and "Copper Blue" (Sugar) live at in The First Avenue (Minneapolis). I really liked his self-titled work as well. I haven't really been impressed with any other of his work, until now. First off, opening the limited edition boxed set struck me dumb, especially since I was once an altar boy (I wonder if Bob was too?) The included art/photography and its arrangement/presentation (subtle and tasteful) sets the overall tone. The music shows us that Bob has put it all together: his past, present, and future. He presents us with this 2-disc magnus opus, a great mixture of songs both reminiscent and new; Bob's truly consummated work, a Body of Song.
