The Evangelist by singer and songwriter Robert Forster is his first solo recording in 11 years. It may not be a record he ever planned to make at all after the unexpected death of Grant McLennan, his collaborator for over 25 years in the Go Betweens. The band had released and was on tour for Oceans Apart, a masterpiece surpassed only by 16 Lovers Lane, if at all. Forster and McLennan had begun writing a new Go Betweens album in 2006, when McLennan passed away in his sleep from natural causes just shy of his 47th birthday.

Robert Forster's first solo album in 12 years, his first after the untimely death of his fellow Go-Between Grant McLennan, begins with If It Rains, a song that shimmers with the same kind of exquisite sadness their much-loved band captured in their nine albums together. And when the soft guitars of Forster and McLennan's last joint composition, Demon Days, quickly follow it, the prospect of The Evangelist being a mournful masterpiece is all too gloriously likely

Robert Forster – The Evangelist. In an essay he wrote after the sudden death of Grant McLennan in 2006, Robert Forster noted that popular opinion about the Go-Betweens was wrong. Forster – usually viewed as the more bohemian of the two – was known by McLennan as the Strategist. McLennan – seen as the steady one – was the dreamer. These terms are relative, of course. Forster notes that McLennan lived so much in the moment that he (Forster) could appear visionary merely by thinking about tomorrow
