Clearly a huge influence on later alternative/grunge bands, this album should totally be ranked higher on this site.

One of the most original and influential bands of the 1980s, Husker Du added an intellectual and thoughtful approach to punk music which reached the peak of sonic solemnity on 'New Day Rising'. The more overt expression of alienation through punk that typified the anthems of the Sex Pistols and the caricatured stances of The Ramones, had been refined by Husker Du. As the writer Piero Scaruffi put it, "Punk desperation was still ubiquitous, but it was no longer expressed in the form of primal wrath. It had become a lyrical state of the soul in a pathological state of the mind." The ground-breaking musical language of Husker Du emphasised the personalized experience - pensive emotions and fragile states' of mind - as opposed to confrontation. This was achieved through the prism of catchy folk-ish melodies that underlay a 'hardcore' sonic 'wall of sound'. From the formal point of view, 'New Day Rising' is the groups most flawless album.
