    A good listen. Not edgy, but enjoyable.

    It's a return to form for Mould and hits the highs of Sugar.

    DL is not a groundbreaking, earthshattering, disc of cutting edge visceral yet intelligent and emotional rock music - not in the sense of all of Bob Mould's albums between 1983 and 1993. But like Body of Song and Last Dog and Pony Show before it, it is a solid and engaging batch of songs from one of the finest rock musicians of the past thirty years. Is it one of his best? Nah.

Is it better than most everything else in mainstream rock music today? Absolutely. And "The Silence Between Us" is his best single since "Your Favorite Thing". It is just Bob doing what Bob does...with a few more bells and whistles. (But yes, no one likes the vocoder fixation.) Collapse

  1. District Line, Mould's seventh solo album, is a swell follow-up to his bracing 2005 return-to-rockishness record "Body of Song."
  2. A solid if not completely earth-shattering act of restitution for loyal Bob-watchers
  3. District Line delivers the latest dissertation in cross-pollination and like past projects it’s a bit of a Frankenstein affair.
