Until “Makes No Sense At All,” Grant Hart was tagged as the “pop” guy who wrote the big, hooky songs like “Pink Turns to Blue” or “Books About UFOs” while Bob Mould wrote the statement songs like “Whatever” or “Celebrated Summer.”
But “Makes No Sense At All,” which came out a ridiculous six months after New Day Rising, stands as their pure pop pinnacle. Without sacrificing even an iota of their stratospheric roar.
