Sugar – The Act We Act
"Mould's second power trio saw him return to electric guitar, and the opening track to Sugar's 1992 debut LP Copper Blue was overloaded with enough hooks, riffs and flourishes to fill a lesser artist's entire album. The Act We Act suggested My Bloody Valentine (in whom Creation boss Alan McGee saw a British answer to Hüsker Dü) applying their ear-melting assault to the 12-string jangle and chime of the Byrds as multi-tracked Moulds harmonised above. Its perfect balance of might and melody set the tone for the album's embarrassment of riches, marking a steep upturn in Mould's critical and commercial fortunes."
