"The prolific Mr. Pope has another disc out. The latest, Fanboy, follows a similar formula to its predecessors – catchy, crunchy powerpop laden with interesting cultural references.
Fanboy is a disc that gets better and better with each listen however there are a number of tracks that will grab you from the get-go. “King of the Scene” is an interesting story-song about a self-derailed career in music, the title track is likely an autobiographical piece and the first song I believe I’ve every heard with an Ultraman reference. For the uninitiated, Ultraman was a Japanese superhero that every afternoon after school, saved the planet from Godzilla-type creatures. A lip-syncing nightmare but incredibly entertaining nonetheless.
Other highlights include “Greater Threat”, “Galileo” and an acoustic version of a track previously released on Pope’s Pete EP a few years back. “Sleeping Dogs” was one of my favorite tracks on that year (2009) and the acoustic version is even better."

"The Pope of Power Pop is back! I'm speaking of course of Greg Pope, one of the genre's best and most prolific artists of the last decade-plus, be it in Edmund's Crown or as a solo artist (Popmonster was my #1 album of 2008). And for those who remember Edmund's Crown, you might be interested in knowing drummer David Sprouse joined Pope on the most of the tracks here, and the opener "New Beginning" wouldn't have sounded out of place on their last release, Regrets of a Company Man. Pope also takes a page from Jeff Tweedy, involving his sons in the album as 17-year-old Asher Pope co-wrote "Pretend it's Yesterday" (a lovely acoustic ballad) and plays acoustic guitar on several tracks, while 15-year-old Noah plays drums on "How it Ends". Meanwhile, quality numbers like the title track (which speaks to us obsessives of all stripes) and "Greater Threat" will end up on that best of Greg Pope playlist you'll undoubtedly compile someday soon."
