    With Get Lost, McGuire has nudged toward both goals, and while in many ways, for long time fans, this is exactly what you'd expect a 2011 Mark McGuire album to sound like.

    McGuire still seems all too comfortable and way too sure of exactly where he stands on Get Lost.

    Beyond the structural suture of earthen folk is a dazzling spectacle of unguitar-like effects and affects.

    Perhaps the most tangible set of songs he has produced yet.

    Get Lost is no worse (and no better) than 2010's Living With Yourself. [Oct 2011, p.56]

    Get Lost may not be the incredible experience that Living was, but it's still a very enjoyable listen.

    It was obviously made with care, and, as an result, is pretty easy on the ears. Much of it is also over-saturated, poured on too thick, and it can be cloying in its polite pleasantness.

    Get Lost marks him out as descendant of Manuel Gottsching and Vini Reilly, stringing pretty guitar motifs and quiet, whispered vocals into ringing loops. [Nov 2011, p.93]

    The album is warm, well paced, reassuring, confident and manageable in length; it's also self-consciously naïve in feeling, floppy and weirdly distant.

    His latest is dedicated to "the spirit of the summer night sky," and that's an accurate, if slightly cornball, description of these six impressionistic guitar instrumentals.

    Where Living With Yourself found McGuire sticking to moody, simple melodies, Get Lost inches up the volume a little.

    Get Lost [is] McGuire's most accessible album to date.
