Body of Song

A-

Tormented as ever, Bob Mould devotes pretty much this entire CD, Body of Song, to examining a doomed relationship from every angle; he’s alternately resigned, angry, self-lacerating, regretful, and yearning. Musically, though, he’s more focused. After unsatisfying forays into synth-pop and such, he’s realized, in sonic avalanches like ”Circles,” that sandblaster chords and cathartic solos bring out the best in him; in ”Days of Rain,” he may have his own ”With or Without You.” Alternate title: BobbyFully Loaded.
