ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
2018 remaster of the "Opera Alley", third album from Rob Christensen's one-man-band, Saturday's Radio.

Some reviews:

Exceedingly jangly homepop informed by the Beatles, Bob Dylan, the Kinks, maybe Soul Asylum or The Replacements. Slanky guitar chordage over drum machine grooves and pokey-jabby bass lines. The vocals are way out front, often double-tracked. "Star Route Nine" is a relatively purdy acoustic ballad, followed by "Janie Sims", an uptempo pop songs with a very Dylanic vocal. "Solo" is a rockin' pop quickie with harmonized vocal bits. "Sunny Day" coulda been a Paul Westerberg track. "Someday Soon" rounds out the disc with a 2-chord swing. 
Ian C Stewart - AUTOreverse.

Rob Christensen's third home-studio recording (At The End Of The Day, a live recording from 1999, completes the discography to date) finds our hero in the mood for some classic pop-rock, a la Kinks, Beatles and Beach Boys (or so he claims in his remarks on the album). Markedly less raw, melancholy and vulnerable than its predecessors (the Brian Wilson-esque "Someday Soon" is startlingly upbeat), Smile Slightly (1994) and The Truth Hurts (1997), Opera Alley nevertheless maintains Christensen's high standards. If Smile Slightly was Christensen's Blonde On Blonde, Opera Alley is his Planet Waves: an honest, heartfelt record by a superb songwriter with a straightforward appeal that will grow on you with every listen.
