We gave it a B+

Lloyd teamed with Radney Foster on a string of laudable late-’80s country hits. On Set to Pop, his first solo album since their split in 1991, Lloyd consistently scores in his ongoing search for the perfect melody. From the jangly ”The Man Who Knew Too Much” to the loopy ”Niagra Falls,” he concocts a brand of pop that recalls the glory days of Squeeze and Big Star. His relentlessly tuneful writing is a joy for anyone who likes a song with lots of bang and just a touch of twang. B+
