Metal Circus – Hüsker Dü

Husker Du Metal Circus

Metal Circus

(1983), 5.5/10
After beginning as a hardcore punk band, Hüsker Dü’s third release shows them expanding their range. It’s only twenty minutes and seven songs, several of which are still basic hardcore punk, but the band are starting to add pop hooks to their intense assault. Drummer Grant Hart leads the way with ‘It’s Not Funny Anymore’, but ‘Diane’ is the most memorable song, a retelling of a gruesome Minnesota murder, with Hart screaming “Die Anne” repeatedly. Bob Mould opens the album with the intense ‘Real World’, and also starts adding pop hooks with ‘First of the Last Calls’. There are encouraging signs on Metal Circus, but it’s more interesting as a document of the band’s expansion from hardcore punk than something I feel like listening to often.
