Hüsker Dü

New Day Ris­ing

Classic Rock - - The Hard Stuff -

De­spite main­tain­ing el­e­ments of their fran­tic punk fuzz, the fol­low-up to Zen Ar­cade, the fit­tingly ti­tled New Day Ris­ing ex­panded Dü’s sound into struc­tured melodies. The Who’s Pete Town­shend later told Mould of his admiration for the eclec­tic Cel­e­brated Sum­mer. Like I Don’t Know What You’re Talk­ing About, it al­ter­nates be­tween punk and melo­di­ous soul­ful rock; a per­fect mi­cro­cosm of Dü’s evolv­ing sound through­out the al­bum as a whole. That evo­lu­tion even in­cluded the Min­ute­men-in­flu­enced, jaz­zstruc­tured ex­per­i­men­tal­ism of How To Skin A Cat.
