We gave it a B+
On 2000’s ”The Friends of Rachel Worth,” fey-pop masterminds Robert Forster and Grant McLennan reconvened the Go-Betweens — one of the 1980s’ great footnotes — for an album rivaling their best. Here, they’ve done it again. Smart, sitting-room songcraft barbed with bright guitars and marked by a familiar mix of wistful diary keepers, melancholy stage strutters, and fortune-tellers in denial, the CD will probably encourage a flood of middling band reunions. But it’s worth it.
