A Miniaturist(ish) Masterpiece!!!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Universal Truths And Cycles (Audio CD)
I love this album. I love this band. Why aren't they massive? I don't know. But I do know that anyone whose life has ever been enhanced by the melodic guitars of The Beatles and Big Star, the rock-outs of The Who and Blue Oyster Cult and the whimsical widdlings of early Yes and Genesis would find much to love in the world of GBV. Above and beyond fashion, Rob Pollard and co. have been churning out two (sometimes stretching to four!) minute nuggets of sheer energy and invention for years. Pollard's voice remains their greatest asset, an instrument of rough grace and raw charm, allied to a songwriting talent which shames that of the more successful and styled-out rock groups around right now. Get your credit card out, this is perfection.
