Well into his fourth decade as a singer-songwriter, Mould is as relevant, ferocious, and poignant as he has ever been on the compact epic that is Beauty & Ruin. Instead of sitting idle and going quiet, Bob chooses to confront head-on and plow through the psychic turbulence that comes with this stage of life. Much of Beauty & Ruin deals with the passing of Mould’s father in October 2012, Bob’s struggle to come to terms with it, himself, and his own identity and legacy, and repercussions of all of the above on his ongoing relationships in the land of the living. Beauty & Ruin is a twelve-track journey of loss, reflection, conciliation, and coming through the other side.

After millions of miles, hundreds of songs, encores in all cities the world over, Bob looks at everything with an embattled positivity. Bob says, “It’s like an encore, to come back and just pummel people. Lyrically, it reprises and summarizes the main themes, going full circle from the dark reflection of Low Season to the lyric about yelling ‘into a paper cone while pounding on a piece of wood and wires.’ The constants: I sing and play guitar. I tell stories using words and music. That’s what I do.” Beauty & Ruin is a product of a survivor who refuses to give up, thrives through his work, and subsequently embraces the many changes around and within himself. Bob smartly declares the album as “yet another bonus round, and I am very grateful.”
