As recent as a year and a half ago, I would have argued that Bob Mould jumped the shark. A punk legend, no doubt, but his recent solo records up to that point had been weird and consistently boring, at the very most proof that creative brilliance is finite. And then Silver Age came out last summer, and it fucking ripped out of nowhere. A year later, it's still a record I bump constantly (and I'm still pissed I wasn't able to see Mould play it and Sugar's Copper Blue back-to-back in their entirety last year). Its best songs sound like lost Sugar cuts, and "The Descent" in particular ranks among Mould's very finest. Silver Age has completely absolved Mould of prior artistic transgressions—hopefully he stops making music before he loses it again.
