Not to be missed

(5 out of 5 stars)

"let's forget about GBV for a moment and just pick this one up. Bob's label (Needmore songs) pretty much says it all- he did not need to release this but what the hell! This one has the feel of Bob getting up the day after a great show, stretching and drinking coffee and casually ripping through some of the best pop songs to date. 'Get Under It', 'Flat Beauty' and 'Girl Named Captain' will consumre your waking hours. The album takes longer to digest than most, so your coworkers will hate it. Dig it! If you like this album, seek out the Box, the elusive 5 CD set of early GBV material. smokin...."

"forget all the hype (for the good and for bad) that has drowned gbv in their own ocean - this album stands above all the droning sounds of "i knew them when..." and shines as brightly as albums like 'devil between my toes', and 'self inflicted aerial nostalgia' - if you like(d) gbv for what made them different, not just because they were different - you will like (love) this album. that's it."

"pollard solo albums used to be guided by voices records in thin disguise. GbV would dip liberally into them on their setlists and current and former bandmates stream through them, lending their skills to further promote the trademark sound. nowhere is this more the case then on this, the first solo effort. it is filled with ridiculously great pop songs: psychic pilot clocks out, flat beauty, get under it, maggie turns to flies, girl named captain. it has some song snippets that one wonders how they would have turned out if fully materialized. and ends with a barrage of short acoustic numbers that won't leave your head. some have commented on this song sequencing and how the flow of the record is negatively affected by this front loading of traditional pop/rock tracks. i for one love it. pollard puts much effort into this process. he says it's one of the things he enjoys most about his job, diddling with song order. and don't you do the same thing when burning a CD for your girlfriend or some guy who's never heard real (indie) music before?

this may be the crowning achievement in robert pollard's amazing career. highly recommended."
