Hüsker Dü: Candy Apple Grey

Ralph Traitor, Sounds, March 1986

CANDY APPLE GREY is Hüsker Dü's fourth consecutive classic and their first album for a major label. Since 1982, this image-free Milwaukee [sic] trio of quick-witted hardcore evolutionists has continually disproved most of the preconceptions about '80s rock, latterly releasing their seminal quartet: Zen Arcade, New Day Rising, Flip Your Wig and this.
