Excruciating Bliss

by Rob Laufer

Known for his killer pop hooks and strong Beatles affinity (Laufer was featured on Cheap Trick's "Sgt. Pepper Live" DVD) with Excruciating Bliss, his 4th release, Laufer sets a more adventurous course than on his previous efforts. The results, while a bit challenging, are wholly rewarding and revealing, especially on repeated listenings.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Known for his killer pop hooks and strong Beatles affinity (Laufer was featured on Cheap Trick's "Sgt. Pepper Live" DVD) with Excruciating Bliss, his 4th release, Laufer sets a more adventurous course than on his previous efforts. The results, while a bit challenging, are wholly rewarding and revealing, especially on repeated listenings.
Juicy hooks still abound (Mary Entertaining, Faith, New Life) but expanded forms and freer lyrics set up a looser, headier vibe this time around. While his 1996 Discovery/Sire release, "Wonderwood" was perhaps his best known, it is Laufer's 3 self released CD's: The Iron Age, Swimming Lesson, and now, Excruciating Bliss that are indispensable pop gems.
