After a couple of Pollard purchases I haven't much liked (Choreographed Man of War, Space City Kicks), this album has restored my faith. Of the ten songs, eight are good with four of those eight being great. Highlights include 'The Blondes', 'Gratification to Concrete' and 'Weatherman and Skin Goddess'. On the latter, I particularly like how three different tunes intertwine as the song reaches its close - a skill later replicated on the 2012 version of the Guided By Voices track 'Class Clown Spots A UFO' to equally mesmerising effect. Last song 'Wealth and Hell Being' however is probably my favourite cut here. Essential for the Pollard fan and a good introduction for the newcomer. What baffles me is why a songwriter of such talent labours in near obscurity.

... but no need to give Bob one-star reviews!

I couldn't let that injustice pass in case it put someone off purchasing.

Bob has been on something of a hot streak since forever but seemingly moreso since his work with the Boston Spaceships. Anyone familiar with Bob's solo work or Guided by Voices years will know largely what to expect here - quality songs, laden with lethal hooks and abstract lyrical turns.

This record is shorter than his usual length with a straightforward 10 of his longer songs - it's the structure the critics have been crying out for years and it does work. Personally I like it when Bob is a little more "all over the place" with snippets and skits but this is a quality approach that you could play to a newbie without them getting confused.

The Blondes, Gratification to Concrete, Weatherman and Skin Godess all top notch tracks.

Concise, proggy and poppy. Cool little record.

Like Sue from Walsall, I actually ordered the CD and received the vinyl version twice!
Sue, if you still want the vinyl copy you can have one of mine!
Amazon were very good and refunded me but did not want the records back
