Review by admireArt
3 stars Adrian Belew´s Pop Sided (2019) may well hold on more or less to its album title yet Belew´s restless energy delivers also some very un-Pop tracks to balance things a bit.

An 11 track album which if anything is varied and shares along the way some of his most hidden influences like Paul McCartney and the Beach Boys and the not so hidden like David Byrne (for whom he has collaborated), blended in with his own Pop and non-Pop vision and also of course his King Crimson kinship.

The real deal of this release, as told, is found in its variety which somehow frames its better tracks and makes the not so good tracks look not so bad, because although it will have been great for it to be flawless as some compositions may point out, it is not, it is only very well produced.

So, a couple of excellent songs (Take Five Deep Breaths, Luminous), some simply good and others are far from my likings, but then again that´s me.

***3 PA stars.
