1 review »Ahhhhhh Bobby Pollard. You really are spoiling me with this record. Pollard is a songwriting master. I don't think he can walk through his house without writing 28 new tunes. This album is yet more proof that the man's a genius. The newest batch of songs from El Bobito are ace. They have melodies and hooks in spades.

Ahhhhhh Bobby Pollard. You really are spoiling me with this record. Pollard is a songwriting master. I don't think he can walk through his house without writing 28 new tunes. This album is yet more proof that the man's a genius. The newest batch of songs from El Bobito are ace. They have melodies and hooks in spades. The album opens with a jarring song called "Mr. Fantastic Must Die" with the most outrageous guitar line ever. I guess you could say the rest of the album is a lot smoother fare. Every songs a banger. A lot of musicians would kill for his quality of output, but for Pollard its just another day in paradise. He makes it sound so easy. He weaves words and phrases together with a thought provoking yet emotional edge. The Beatles influence is still there and can be heard on tracks like "Getting Going". It reminds me of "I am the Walrus", it almost has the same feel. A lot of them have that same pop sensibility, without the acid taking lyrics. The productions great too. It has all the hall marks of a classic Pollard album. I really enjoyed spending time with this record. He's probably got a new one out in about 10 mins. That's one of the great things about Pollard. There is always another sweet record around the corner. Highly recommended.
