Mouseman Cloud - GUIDED BY VOICES INC.
FILTER Grade: 85%
By Loren Auda Poin on April 6, 2012
On Mouseman Cloud, Guided By Voices frontman Robert Pollard is up to his same old genius. Lyrics and hooks circle and lend each other energy as the songs move forward—strange ones with clunky titles like “Picnic Drums” and “Obvious #1” gain fluid sense in the confident trill of Pollard’s unique voice. The guitars could gut a pachyderm, or make it head-bang anyway, the afterwash sneaking around its ears and into its heart.
