Post-punk? Post-hardcore? Either way, I like it.

Highlights: I Apologize, Celebrated Summer, Terms of Psychic Warfare, Books About UFO's

This is the best, early example of the punk being fused with alternative rock and Hüsker Dü’s delivery of it is spot on. This record feels so alive in comparison to their other projects and still stands a defining punk record to this day. Many of the high points on this record include “Celebrated Summer”, “Terms of Psychic Warfare”, and “Powerline”. An overall great LP.

This may be the quintessential Husker record. It isn't quite as monumental and grandiose as their previous release and the sound has been toned down to a slightly more pop friendly tone. However, the speed and the edge is still present in the music. Imagine if a hardcore record were comprised entirely of Simon and Garfunkel songs.
