AllMusic Review by

The Dark Bob is the co-founder of the performance team Bob and Bob, and is now a solo performer, a pioneer in Los Angeles performance art. An Ever Ominous Dream continues his concerns with spirituality versus religion, ecology, and love; his "Monologue" introduces these ideas on the CD. The title song was written on the day that the U.S. began bombing Baghdad. "I Can't Love You Enough" concerns the required suspension of self in love. Its opposite is the song "Who Are You to Me?," described as a story of obsessive, unrequited love. The music is influenced by pop and world music and the Dark Bob calls it "Middle Eastern country-western surf-punk-pop rock." It's that and more.
