Forget the title; there's no film. This is all-killer no-filler power pop that runs the gamut from The Beatles to Big Star. Tommy Keene’s unheralded version of “Kill Your Sons” just about topples the Lou Reed original; there’s added poppy dimension and a punchiness that befits the song’s sentiments. Also here is one of the best (top five, easy) power pop songs ever: “Run Now.” Keene has a delicious pop voice that sounds perfect when it's graphed to power chords, harmonies, and semi-lullabies. He transports sadness handsomely on “The Story Ends,” “Listen to Me," and “They’re in Their Own World” while amping up the optimism on “Places That Are Gone,” “Call on Me,” and “We’re Two.” Midtempo numbers such as “Gold Town” and the lovely “Underworld” creep up and get you by the throat, mainly because there’s no reason not to trust the personal nostalgias Keene sings of. There’s an earnestness about this guy. This set collects an EP of songs Keene recorded with Don Dixon and T-Bone Burnett, as well as the original 1986 album helmed by Beatle engineer Geoff Emerick.
