Circus Devils – Ataxia

The unapologetically prolific Robert Pollard is back with yet another great record under the banner of the Circus Devils. Alternately prog-rocking out, taking spacey trips into psychedelia, and offering up poetically beautiful and weird lyrics has always been this project’s raison d’etre. In fine flying form yet again, most tunes are kept so short they seem to be sketches rather than fully-formed songs, which is simply Pollard’s well-known ADD approach to writing a seemingly endless supply of greatness.

Ataxia is messy, slightly spastic and sounds completely great. What’s not to love? Half of this might sound like a soundtrack to some visionary art school project, probably for fans only, but anyone can get to this brilliance if they just open their minds. You should get this record.
