 Notes & Reviews
 
2009 release by this project from the prolific Robert Pollard, formerly of Guided By Voices. This nuanced and transcendent Rock album culminates with four of Pollard's best songs yet. The majestic and metaphorical 'Queen of Stormy Weather,' who threatens to 'pee on my parade,' is followed by 'The Town That's After Me,' which combines acoustic, electric guitar and strings to stunning effect. 'Sight on Sight,' a four-minute mini-epic, detours to otherworldly chants, echoes and drones, sitars, handrums, and tambourines, but rocks like heck, and the verse of 'Heavy Crown' is melodically reminiscent of the Guided By Voices hit 'Everywhere With Helicopter,' but Pollard ups the ante with an even better chorus and then goes over the top with a still catchier refrain. 14 tracks.
