Despite what you'll hear, this is not the best Husker Du. It's still a great record though. I can't stand a few of the songs, but most of them are great. Candy Apple Grey is a better album, even with only half the number of songs.

this cd is kinda weird, but not necessarily in a bad way. its hard to get me to listen to the cd and once i do i find a song i like but there are alot of songs i just cant listen to cuz its werid distored guitars and rambling lyrics. this is not to say it isnt a good cd. but for a first time fan, perhaps i shoulda tried something different. i will buy another cd by them for sure though cuz yes they are good. be on the look out for another review of any of their cds. peace and love

I dont know what to think of this album--parts of it are totally brilliant (Something I Learned Today, Never Talking to You Again, Pride, etc.), but other parts are a total mess, like I Will Never Forget You, which devolves into nothing but feedback and muttering. Zen Arcade's a very dark, difficult album from a band that was never very accessible. (which isn't to say Husker Du is bad--they were one of the best bands on the 80's American HC scene). All in all, it's a solid effort, but if you're new to Husker Du, get New Day Rising, its easily their best (and most accesible) album.

This is a challenging record. It's not something that you put on and it pleasantly sits in the background. It demands your attention. This is a very dark and painful record. Bob, Greg and Grant are letting out their most inner and painful thoughts. The music reflects the lyrics; dark, angry and chaotic. Yet beneath ALL the chaos there are hints of pop hooks (the band would emphasize this later in their career). There is a lot of experimentation and a lot of interesting things going on in this record. If you are a fan of bands like NFG and Saves the Day, you won't like this. This is not a candy coated record. But once you dig through the chaos to find the great songs that lie beneath, you will see the genius of the Du. If you're new to the Du, I suggest you try New Day Rising or Flip Your Wig, which are more accessible to the newbie. Great stuff.
