The Poet and Guided By Voices

The poet Jordan Davis has an online piece, "Gold Star For Robot Boy, notes on Guided By Voices' work from 1992 to 1997," including the following:

Mixing and matching, putting what feels good front and center and stopping immediately after it's over, those are the best parts of Guided by Voices songs, and from Propellor through Under the Bushes Under the Stars they're the best parts of the albums too. Hard driving nonsense rock interspersed with abrupt little evasive chamber pieces. Not coincidentally, this is the period during which Pollard most shares the billing with Sprout.

<-- The Wily Filipino
