This band is an all american down home rock band. They use a great formula: Gibson guitars, loud amps, and raspy vocals. What more could you ask for. The guy that wrote that review is probably gay ! Tim
30 years since the formation of Husker Du and 20 years since their explosive demise and the subsequent release of his first lauded solo effort Workbook – called a ”masterpiece” by critics- Bob Mould is marking anniversaries with an album filled with self-reflection and an unflinching examination of the world around him. Standouts like ”Wasted World” and ”I’mSorry Baby, But You Can t Stand in My Light Anymore” highlight an artist completing a cycle decades in the making, his talent undiminished, his perspective acute. Bob Mould is one of the most influential musicians of the alternative rock era, first for his early work with post-punksHusker Du, followed by the college rock-defining pop of Sugar and finally for his solo albums, notably his first, Workbook,which quieted Mould s previous ire to reveal his fine songwriting in a new light and allowed an introspective glimpse into the inner workings of an evolving artist. With Life and Times, Mould comes full circle, reclaiming his indie songwriting mantle from the generation of musicians he inspired.

AWSOME BAND, AWSOME MUSIC. One of my favorite cd’s. I listen to it every day.
I remember this album vividly growing up. This, the Black Album, Get a Grip, COC, Ugly Kid Joe, etc etc. This album and the first one were really good. The fact that I still have fond memories of songs from the early 90’s should say something. It was fun to listen to as a little kid and it’s still fun to listen to in my early twenties. The album is full of memorable tracks and it’s a shame that this is as underrated as it is. I was playing Secret of the Bottle on my acoustic and my friends were like, you make that up? I always loved the way Jackyl put a chainsaw in their music- you ever hear a chainsaw applied musically?
This album is one i’m glad i accidently found for $4 in a pawn shop! This album ROCKS!!!!! Any Jackyl fan or hard rockin fan should love this album, and Push is one of the best songs that Jackyl ever put together!!! it contains killer tracks, and deserves more respect then any of those wankas who say Jackyl only had one good album…. this one Rocks just as good as the first!
