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.

Robert Pollard, Normal Happiness. The former Ohio schoolteacher Robert Pollard is one of pop's great cults. Normal Happiness, his second "proper" solo album since folding Guided By Voices, offers a new, consistent Pollard

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.

Normal Happiness is the sixth album by Robert Pollard. Like its predecessor, it was recorded with Pollard on basic guitar and vocal tracks, with instrumental overdubs from producer Todd Tobias. Normal Happiness debuted at on the Billboard Top Independent Albums chart.

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.

Opening with one of his worst Who pastiches and following with a truly terrible song, Normal Happiness announces itself as the very definition of mediocrity--even as it gives way to the surprisingly great Supernatural Car Lover before offering the awful lounge music of Boxing About--and one of the worst albums in Bob's canon. Sadly, Supernatural Car Lover is one of only 3 songs--Rhoda Rhoda and Give Up the Grape are the others--in the entire record that reaches a rating of 4 stars, while the remainder of the album ranks as mostly pleasant 3 star fare (with no all time classics, Get a Faceful, Towers and Landslides, I Feel Gone Again, and Top of My Game's humble brag are not enough to save the set). Gasoline Ragtime is archly pretentious and features impenetrable lyrics, while the forced and fussy Pegasus Glue Factory is simply annoyingly full of odd changes. Tomorrow Will Not Be Another Day, as much of the album, sounds like a bad Poco B-Side, and the set closes with quite possibly the worst 1-2 punch of Bob's entire career, loungey synths and weak melodies on Join the Eagles and Full Sun closing on a flat out embarrassing note. The lyrics are among the least inspired of Bob's long career, the songwriting is just plain off, and it's a record that sits on my shelf for years begging to be played before I return it to the shelf for many more years. It's bland, boring and almost without a spark of life or any redeeming qualities.
