9/10 Mike Staff review, 29 November 2012
Bob Pollard’s rejuvenated Guided By Voices have slowly been winning my heart again over the course of the three albums they’ve brought out in the two or three months it must’ve been since they got back together...I thought the first was patchy, but the last two have seen a return to the solid form of their best-loved moments in the mid-’90s.On this 7” we’ve got ‘White Flag’, which is a wistful ‘90s style indie number that’s over practically as soon as it begins...I swear the fade-out takes up about a quarter of the track. On the flip there are two slightly peppier blink-and-you’ll-miss-it numbers, ‘Casino Model’ and ‘Zebra Film Negative’. They’re good too, but very short. I can’t help but feel that they could squeeze at least another three songs onto this single, but the ones that are there are great.
