Hüsker Dü: Candy Apple Grey (1986)
Candy Apple Grey is Hüsker Dü's major label debut, after moving from SST to Warner. The band managed to retain its style, for the most part, and so I would call this record a logical continuation of the sound they had achieved. One thing that changed is the inclusion of two acoustic tracks that would have not seemed possible in the past. Beyond that, the sound seems generally more well-rounded. It's great, of course.
