  • Credits

    After the late-1980s breakup of the Go-Betweens, the beloved Australian band's two singer-songwriters, Robert Forster and Grant McLennan, were far from idle, each issuing four solo albums in the '90s before the duo reunited in the new millennium to much-deserved adoration. This excellent 2007 two-disc set draws many of the finest selections from both Forster and McLennan's outings, creating a well-constructed bridge that connects the two distinct periods in the Go-Betweens' career, which sadly ended in '06 with the sudden death of McLennan. Among the many highlights of INTERMISSION are the bright "121" and slinky "I Can Do," tunes that showcase Forester's oddly catchy aesthetic, and the urgent "Lighting Fires" and ruminative "Hot Water," tracks that call attention to McLennan's beautifully melancholy songcraft.

  • Critic Reviews
    Rolling Stone (p.95) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "There's instant proof of McLennan's gift in the wry, tender, gorgeous opener, 'Haven't I Been a Fool'...."
    Magnet (p.93) - "[S]ongs such as the churning 'Malibu 69,' the delicate 'One Plus One' and the seductive 'In Your Bright Ray' are vintage McLennan."
