At a recent social event, I was accosted by a GBV obsessive who was unhappy at our appraisals of their recent work but the truth is, it's been dreadful. I wonder if this will be any better? This is the thirteenth (c'mon, how many do you actually own?) by Robert Pollards three piece rock side project and according to the press release, they have dropped their brash psychedelic rock in favour of acoustic ballads. Sounds a good idea so long as Pollard has remembered to write some songs.
