10 Songs, 37 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Their fifth album finds hardcore stalwarts Hüsker Dü going softer, layering acoustics over their typically frantic racket to create a timeless-sounding album. The six-minute “Hardly Getting Over It” wouldn’t be out of place at a house party today; the soaring chorus on “Sorry Somehow” shows early shades of what would become pop-punk. To complete the band’s growth on Candy Apple Grey, “Too Far Down” is a sombre and mature ode to living with depression.
