Artist: Bob Mould
Genre: Rock/Pop
Release Date: August 1998

Review by LarryG
3 stars out of 4

The title alludes to this allegedly being Mould's last rock album. Considering that his last couple of records have been showing diminishing returns, it didn't seem to be a bad time to move on but Last Dog and Pony Show is a pleasant surprise. He'll never match the raw inventiveness of his Husker Du work or the power of his post-Husker Du masterpiece, Sugar's Copper Blue, again but he does seem more focused than he's been in a while. Like Copper Blue, Last Dog and Pony Show begins with a string of great intense rockers which barely take a breath. The energy flags in the second half but Mould is the interesting, tormented songwriter he's always been.

Here's what others reviewers have to say:

"...Mould...revisits his past on THE LAST DOG & PONY SHOW .... Blending Sugar's hard pop with the rueful confessions of his solo efforts, Mould has fashioned a passionate tribute to his twenty years in music..." 3 Stars (out of 5)  Rolling Stone 9/3/98, p.101
