  1. On Off to Business, he accomplishes another step toward canonization, making a late-period album that removes any semblance of what made him great in the first place and is a largely uninspired trip down memory lane.
  2. His voice is a delightful constant through good writing and bad. The propeller-arms guitar rock supplied by Pollard's various flesh-and-blood bandmates tend to provide just-off-enough accompaniment, but Tobias mucks it all up.

    Bob continues to follow his muse and produces another record for fans to dig into. There's some fine, fine stuff here and the album Bob continues to follow his muse and produces another record for fans to dig into. There's some fine, fine stuff here and the album works as a tight and cohesive whole. There's a really epic vibe to most of the tracks and Bob voice is in great form. Some of the critical reviews posted here are complete claptrap, shame they have to count in the average score as most serious critical appraisals have recognized this record for what it is.
