    I have had the pleasure of listening to the latest Guided By Voices "The Bears For Lunch" album for a couple of weeks now and all I can recommend you do is go out and buy this album. A modern day classic.

    There's an ever-so-slight improvement upon what has come to be expected of GBV and related releases of the last 10-12 years. [No. 94, p.58]

    No new tricks, but there's life in these old dogs yet.

    The burst of creativity and songwriting that came out of the reunion has its plus side, but it's by no means the necessary listening the band once was.
