The Last Days of Pompeii

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Chris True
After the less-than-friendly break-up of Hüsker Dü, both Grant Hart and Bob Mould released solo work which was considerably different than their work together. Hart's 1989 effort, Intolerance, is a sweeping carnivalesque work that is a logical extension of his work with Hüsker Dü.

The album is not without its experimental side, however; "Space Jazz" a spiraling, noisy, spoken-word track, is a strange break from the narrative, but it flows well into the poppy "Where You Gonna Land." This record is an important addition to the collection of any Hüsker Dü fan.
