amglogo.gif AMG REVIEW: One of R. Stevie Moore's more pop-oriented albums from this stretch of his career, when Moore was primarily interested in lengthy instrumentals and stylistic experiments, 1984's R. Stevie Moore Gets Off is still pretty weird. For example, two of the album's best songs are "Far From Pornography," on which Moore sings an original song over a scratched, skipping copy of a late '60s R&B instrumental, working the record's defects into his own melody, and "Delicate Tension," which does exactly the same thing with the instrumental title track from Moore's own 1978 album, providing a whole new level of enjoyment to one of Moore's most enjoyable songs. Other highlights include the 45-second pop song "July Mist" (if Guided By Voices were to ever record an R. Stevie Moore song, this would be the one) and the fan favorite "Who Needs Girls." While not one of R. Stevie Moore's absolutely top tier albums, fans of the DIY legend's more easily accessible work will appreciate it.
