Album · 2006 · 16 Songs. Bob Pollard is the musical equivalent of an action painter. He writes and records in motion, he doesn’t think too much about it, he doesn’t slow down, and he goes with his gut ending up wherever the day takes him. This is his second solo album of 2006 and like all of his output – most recorded as Guided By Voices – it’s an exciting mélange of pop styles that hits the ear with an agreeable, familiar cadence and yet an element of strangeness that makes each listen a new experience.

Like From a Compound Eye, Pollard made Normal Happiness with longtime collaborator Todd Tobias, who produced the album and played nearly all the instruments, ably building the tracks around Pollard's vocals and guitar. However, while Pollard was trying to make the Great Rock Double Album with Compound Eye, Normal Happiness is more in the tradition of his best work with GBV - sixteen short songs (only one over three minutes, seven under two), with plenty of hooks, lots of guitar and no more fuss than necessary.

Over the past decade, Robert Pollard has streamlined his act; whereas his former group Guided by Voices grabbed the indie spotlight in the mid-'90s by interspersing sporadic moments of blissful transcendence with recurring bouts of drunken doggerel - and to such frequently stunning effect that the doggerel somehow seemed part of a grand organic whole rather than something. Normal Happiness, his latest effort, represents the culmination of this trend. It's his sixth release of the year, after one self-identified "major" album (From a Compound Eye, his 26-song January debut on Merge) and four additions to the Fading Captain roster (albums by ad hoc groups the Keene Brothers, the Takeovers, and Psycho and the Birds, with an additional EP by the last one). Surprisingly - or perhaps not, for anyone familiar with Pollard's ultra-prolific tendencies - Normal Happiness does not reek of exhaustion.
