Given Robert Pollard's pedigree and prolificacy, it should surprise no-one that Honey Locust Honky Tonk is a good record. But what is surprising is quite how good it is, his best and most focused in some time. Pollard burrows deeper into his beloved classic rock, and somehow discovers new modes of expression. Given Robert Pollard's pedigree and prolificacy, it should surprise no-one that Honey Locust Honky Tonk is a good record. Prolific has long been the dominant adjective to describe Robert Pollard, and even then it sounds like an understatement. Deep into his fifties, he hasn’t lost a beat or slowed down a bit, but instead churns out album after album after EP after one-off solo thing after album.

Robert Pollard's 19th solo outing and second 2013 release (GBV's English Little League bests Honey Locust Honky Tonk by three months) continues in the vein of 2012's Jack Sells the Cow by offering up a fragmented set that looks verbose on paper (17 tracks) but yields a light cache at just over a half-hour long.

Honey Locust Honky Tonk is as sweet and as sharp as anything Pollard and friends has ever produced.

Honey Locust Honky Tonk is the nineteenth studio album by American musician Robert Pollard. It was released in July 2013 under GBV Inc. Records. Studio album by. Robert Pollard. Robert Pollard chronology. Jack Sells The Cow (2012). Honey Locust Honky Tonk (2013). Blazing Gentleman (2013).

So, in terms of distinguishing Honky Tonk from the family tree, it’s been touted as a Robert Pollard version of a country album. That boils down to the mention of the phrase honky tonk, the cowboy hat on the front cover, and two songs carrying a (very pleasing) kind of loping train-clacking lilt that’s pretty heretofore unexplored in his discography. It’s utterly consistent, simply arranged, and scrolls through the bad ideas fast enough to make them forgivable. Nineteenth solo album from the hyper-productive singer-songwriter and former Guided By Voices frontman. The album packs a hefty 17-song tracklist into a relatively succinct play time. music OMH. It’s a consistent and, at times, deeply thoughtful record that is pleasantly familiar while offering occasional surprises.

I consider this to be one of the best solo Pollard album. Most of the songs are catchy and they don't all sound alike, contrary to some other Pollard releases.
Vivaral
Bobs output is so crazy that a lot of his own records along with the GBV stuff are underwhelming. It’s a case of quantity over quality. However THIS one is an exception. A bunch of great songs on this, and a solid beginning to end listen. One of his best solo works.
Endieyab
I agree, this one has a lot of songs that have stuck with me over the years since it came out. some very unique sounding songs for Pollard.
