Pollyanna is the second studio album by American band Northstar. They released the album in 2004, after two years of touring with bands such as Taking Back Sunday and The Beautiful Mistake,[3] using material from their first studio album, Is This Thing Loaded?, also released through Triple Crown Records. Although commercially not very successful, like much of Northstar's work, it has been passionately praised and defended against critics by Northstar's fans, even after 12 years since their break up.
