Is The Sky The Limit?

Grant Hart- Husker Du survivor- has a new double album out shortly on Domino. It's inspired by both John Milton's Paradise Lost and William Burroughs, which would seem quite daunting were it not for the quality of the tunes, or at least the ones I've heard so far. Grant has a real way with melody and mood and let's be honest- although Bob Mould is remembered as the key Husker, Grant wrote at least as many of their great songs. Grant's solo career has its high spot moments too- the 2541 single, the Intolerance lp, the Hot Wax album from recently, some of Nova Mob's stuff. The Argument promises to be up there amongst them.
