Robert Pollard may have alienated some GBV fans when he hired a new back up crew. Especially when the "new" album is such a departure, production-wise from the usual lo-fi recordings Pollard & co have become infamous for. In the same foul swoop tho, he's managed to recruit a schwack of new ones with Mag Earwig!. I've always dug the lo-fi ramblin's of GBV....but this new sound was kind of refreshing. Some stand-outs..."I am a Tree", "Bulldog Skin", "I am Produced", "Little Lines".
