From A Compound Eye

Robert Pollard

Released: 02/06/2006
Format: CD
Label: Must Destroy Music
Catalog #: MUSTY017CD
Country: United Kingdom
Discs: 1
# Tracks: 26
UK Release Notes: We're proud as hell to be releasing Bob's first post-Guided By Voices solo album here in the UK / Europe. Even if these songs were the only thing Pollard had ever written, there'd still be a pretty strong case for the use of the word 'genius' that crops up whenever his name is mentioned in sensible company. As it goes, despite having one of the largest, most eclectic and thrilling back-catalogues in the history of rock music, he's still managed to come up with the goods. 26 tracks that stand up tall next to what has gone before. No mean feat. We are truly honoured. - for contractual reasons, we can only ship this title to addresses in the UK / Europe
