Guided By Voices

OK, so I think I'm becoming a huge Guided By Voices fan. I don't know why it's taken me so long. I knew I would like them ('cuz Chris from .pointfive does), but for some reason I didn't check them out until now. I bought Bee Thousand and Isolation Drills from Needmore Discs because Colleen recommended those albums, and I like both extremes of production. The songs are just great, and Robert Pollard's lyrics are such a weird, perfect blend of focused abstraction.

So yeah, another great band! And I think GBV deserve the CONSUME EVERYTHING approach that I reserve for my favorites.
