What's this? The mercurial leader of the Pixies, one of the most brooding and foreboding bands from the postpunk era, sounding enthusiastic? Soaking up the vibe of an all-star musical assemblage Steve Cropper, Spooner Oldham, Buddy Miller, the Band's Levon Helm, Cheap Trick's Tom Petersson, Bad Company's Simon Kirke, and Motown Funk Brother Bob Babbitt, among others Black rambles down the backroads of classic Americana. The result is a stirring, soulful, tuneful set of songs 27 spread across this double-disc set each of which makes an immediate and indelible impression. The pessimistic refrain from "It's Just Not Your Moment" proves misdirected. It's obvious that in crafting this album for the ages, Black has made this moment his.
