- Planet Score by Guided By Voices
8/10 Clinton Staff review, 16 January 2014
We’ve just got 5 Guided By Voices singles in stock. Will they ever stop releasing things? I hope not. I’ve recently realised that ALL their recent albums have moments of true greatness and not just the stunning ‘Class Clown Spots a UFO’ as I initially suspected. Yep, buy ‘em all I say. I tend to limited myself to their albums only and so on the strength of what I hear here I will be placing my order for the forthcoming ‘Motivational Jumpsuit’ post haste.
I’m not going to sit here and review all of these 7”s, instead ‘Lil Biz’ has picked out ‘Planet Score’ for me based on some hunch or other that it would be the best one and if it isn’t then the others must be off the scale because this is quite terrific. I’m not sure if its the new headphones Phil has bought (in the hope that records would sound better therefore the reviewing staff would like them more) but this sounds great. Massive chunky production in that classic ‘mid-fi’ sound that they have on all their best records.
‘Planet Score’ is 1 minute 41 seconds of massive tuneful riffery and Pollards always tuneful vocals. Its great. I love it. All the songs from these 7”s feature on the forthcoming album so there’s no throwaway. B side ‘Zero Elasticity’ is more of a second division GBV number but is still great by anyones standards not unlike ‘Tractor Rape Chain’ off their ‘Bee Thousand’ opus.
