In his 9 out of 10 review of Bob Mould’s Beauty & Ruin, Arnold Pan writes, “Beauty & Ruin as a whole communicates everything that needs to be about what’s happening in the present for Bob Mould, as his vaunted past can be seen as setting the stage for what he’s doing now and into the future, no longer overshadowing or haunting it.”
Mould’s latest work for Beauty & Ruin is a video for “The War”, which you can view below. This video’s release runs just a few days before Mould will take to Reddit for his own Ask Me Anything (AMA) session.
Beauty & Ruin is out now on Merge.
Head over to the Reddit AMA page on Tuesday at 3:30 PM Eastern US time for your chance to have Mould answer your questions directly.
