Surprisingly, considering how he'd referred to Mould's late period Hüsker Dü work as "square", Hart's debut was even more more sensitive singer-songwriter fodder than Mould's! "2541" is however, a moving song of loss with a fittingly mournful melody. The fine lyrical details and the the swelling chorus make for the perfect eulogy for the Hüskers. It's blatantly autobiographical but unsentimental and it contains many a stinging line like, "It's probably not be the last time I'll have to be out by the first".
The rest of the EP "Come, Come" and "Let Go" is less-than-spectacular but as this recording of "2541" is very different then the one on Intolerance, it's a crucial release.
So what do you make of Hart's comeback? Of "2541"? Let us know in the COMMENTS section (where you'll find the 2541 EP link).
