As with virtually all of Bob Mould’s releases, I love some songs, I like some others and don’t feel strongly for one or two. Overall, Life and Times is a solid release. Bob draws on his punk past, his dance DJ present, digs deep emotionally on wrenching songs like Bad Blood Letter, and throws some pop bones to his fans with the title track and I’m Sorry Baby…. Rolling Stone gave this a so-so review but I find a whole lot to like about Life and Times. Bob’s the real deal. I have a long history with him and you (well, at least I) can tell that he pours a lot of himself into his music. That’s all I need from a gifted musician. I’m psyched! Bob’s got a new album out!
