    Another great album from Uncle Bob. The SPIN reviewer must have listened to the album just after his puppy was killed...this is fantastic. Boston Spaceships has set a high benchmark for themselves. Track 26 is all you need hear to know that you will want this album in your collection.

    this is another step forward in the already impressive Pollard's discography! A real "no filler all killer" record, accurately conceived (varied but not disjointed) and admirably played (the musicianship on it is remarkable, thx to unmistakable axeman like J Mascis and others). If you liked "our cubehouse", you will love let it beard!

    The album's breadth of ideas mimics Pollard's career these days--all over the place, but still remarkable.

    Studded with occasional gems...it's also weighed down by a handful of jokey throwaways and partially realised pop numbers among its 24 tracks. [Oct 2011, p.94]

    It's very long and the songs don't really relate to one another, despite the band's description as "a subconscious concept album about the sorry state of rock n' roll." But Let It Beard certainly seems like a strong statement about something.
