Kowtow Popof
End of Greatness

Kowtow Popof is a solo artist with an uncanny knack for writing catchy tunes with smart lyrics. End of Greatness is a breakup album, but don't worry, he's not here to wallow in self-pity.

He never loses track of good melodies or unique perspectives on love. "Thought you'd come around" is about loss but with its tongue in its cheek. "Things That Aren't Comets" twinkles brightly, Popof echoing Marc Bolan at times. "Oblivion" has a memorable melody and Popof's vocal is evocative. "Tribute 2 Mice Elf" is quite cute and has a neat chorus. Popof's made an album that's winning and easy to love.
