A solo pop dream by Guided by Voices’ Sprout: gorgeously languid melodies, tight-throated vocals that convey sincer-ity, and lyrics flicking back and forth between poeticism and pleasant wiftiness. All right, most of the lyrics are wifty (”Doctor No. 5 has his feet in the spray/Doctor No. 6 has to work all day”), but when Sprout is both tuneful and coherent, as on the effulgent ”All Those Things We’ve Done,” he achieves pure bliss.
Lead Performer: Tobin Sprout; Producer (group): Luna
