2008 solo album from the founding father of Indie Rock and Guided By Voices leader. With ten songs in 35 minutes, it’s an extraordinary Rock tour-de-force. Robert Pollard Is Off To Business sports Todd Tobias’s cleanest and meanest production yet, giant songs and riffs that pack a wallop, and arguably Pollard’s finest singing ever captured on record. For Pollard, whose albums normally run 15-25 songs, this ten-song work is a departure from form. He’s definitely turned up the Rock 10% and the Classic 11% on this album. Extraordinarily influential, Pollard is not just a founding father of indie rock, but in the long run will prove to be an important part of rock history, with a significant oeuvre that branches from The Who, Peter Gabriel-era Genesis, Wire, and The Clean.
