In the continuing saga of life after the Pixies, Frank Black lords over his own private musical reserve on The Cult of Ray, where hints of early Bowie, late punk, and mock surf-rock fuse, somehow seamlessly. From the quirky anthem of the title cut to fractured romantic odes (”I Don’t Want to Hurt You [Every Single Time]”) to moody ravers (”You Ain’t Me”) to rangy instrumentals (”Mosh, Don’t Pass the Guy”), Black still finds his way to a fresh, feisty new day.
