9/10 Mike Staff review, 14 October 2011

Rob Crow's been in so many iconic bands even he must find it hard to keep track sometimes...Pinback, Three Mile Pilot, Heavy Vegetable, Goblin Cock, The Ladies - he's a prolific guy alright. Every now and then he squeezes out a solo record, too. His previous one, Living Well, was a deeply affecting, concise and personal record that further emphasised this man's mercurial genius, and this new LP is easily its equal. Fans of Pinback especially will be excited by this, since it relies on similar trademarks to that band, with Crow's distinctive steady but soulful voice backed by his trademark fruity, boomy, almost piano-like bass tone (along with guitar and keys and drums when they're needed). The arrangements and pacing tend to fall in similar territory to the last couple of Pinback albums too, but he's taken the opportunity that solo albums provide to branch out into a more diverse sound, and also to put together a few songs that are more intimate and personal than his bands'. When he kicks up the rock levels, like on 'Build', there's a real soupy momentum created by a non-stop hi-hat spatter that's really effective, while at other moments like 'Pat's Cabs' and 'Purpose' the sound is stripped back to just Crow and an acoustic guitar. Meanwhile thumping dancefloor filler 'Locking Seth Putnam in Hot Topic' is literally two of the best minutes of music you're ever likely to hear from this genius. I don't know what else to say about it but that. If you're getting impatient for a new Pinback record this should scratch that itch until it shows up, and If you're not familiar with this guy's bands this record is as good a place to start as any.
