Moving to a major label doesn't affect Hüsker Dü's sound greatly – although the production is more full-bodied than Spot's razor-thin work, the Hüskers don't change their blazing attack at all. Much of Candy Apple Grey charges along on the same frenzied beat that propelled New Day Rising and Flip Your Wig, and both Bob Mould and Grant Hart are in fine form, spinning out fine punk-pop with "Sorry Somehow" and "Don't Want to Know If You Are Lonely."… read more

  • The later stuff is good guitar rock, but it's kind of sad to see what was once one of the toughest, nastiest Hardcore Punk acts in the world playing "college rock." Anyway, "Hardly Getting Over It" is an absolutely beautiful song.
  • This is incredibly underrated... [2]
  • This is incredibly underrated...so many catchy hooks here, I can get "Sorry Somehow" and "Don't Want to Know if You Are Lonely" stuck in my head on a loop for days. I agree, no a big fan of No Promise Have I Made...would have liked it more if the lyrics weren't cheesy and the vocals were in tune (and they can do ballads, as shown with "Too Far Down"), but everything else is gold in my opinion. I suppose its their most emotional album, so that may turn off a few people, but it doesn't bother me.
  • worst Husker album, still rules
  • the only husker du album i have yet to get into.
  • The production is awful. I love the raw sound of Zen Arcade & NDR, but this one just sounds thin and dated. Other than that, it's their most interesting record lyrically, considering what both Hart and Mould went through at the time. That being said, it's probably my least favorite Husker. Always has been. I mean, its greatest moment is basically a Replacements rip-off...
  • this album is just something else, their sounds really becomes something unique in here
  • So underrated. This album should be as legendary as New Day Rising. [3]
  • Grant Hart has such a knack for writing catchy songs and it shows so much on this record
  • Too Far Down and Hardly Getting Over It both stink, and it's a damn shame that they didn't write more than one verse for Eiffel Tower High. The rest is great though.
