Solo album number twenty four by the tireless Guided By Voices auteur!

To some extent, the new album is a natural outgrowth of Pollard's 2015 work with Ricked Wicky; and to some extent it's a return to early-2000s Guided By Voices, with its combination of in- strumental virtuosity and Pollard's uniquely oblique approach to songwriting. The instrumental palette has been broadened - discreet flourishes of strings, horns, piano occasionally bring to mind baroque rock classics by the likes of Love and Cardinal.

Which is not to say this is chamber pop. These songs are all determinedly guitar-driven, however textured, and rock as hard as anything Pollard's done to date.

'Of Course You Are' runs the usual gamut of Pop, Prog, Psych, and even Punk-oriented tracks. His vocals are impeccable, his phrasing as sharp as ever - he seems invigorated by the collaborative juice provided by Mitchell, who himself has clearly been liberated by the opportunity to take the reins in the studio, and delivers in (aces of) spades
