2011 is turning out to be quite a year for Robert Pollard. The hugely successful Guided By Voices reunion tour is doing victory laps at Pitchfork and Sasquatch festivals, and, believeit or not, new White House Spokesman Jay Carney declared in a press conference that he's obsessed with Guided By Voices. January, February and March saw three remarkable albums by Pollard projects (as well as a live Guided By Voices triple-LP) and watch out, here comes another one, with a new twist. On Lord of the Birdcage, Pollard reverses his songwriting process, transforming a dozen previously written poems into songs. He's never written in this fashion before, and his whimsical, surrealist lyrics take center stage. Lord of the Birdcage is a subtle record comprised of mostly steady, relaxed tempos-power pop, glam chugs, gorgeous ballads and a notable number of 3/4 waltz-time meters, including the haunting acoustic "In a Circle," the frenetic rocker "You Sold Me Quickly" and the lush, stringdriven "Silence Before Violence." It's a cohesive, flowing work, and Pollard's sublime songs reveal their treasures through repeat listenings.
