GUIDED BY VOICES – Hardest Working Band In The World Released ‘ISOLATION DRILLS’ 20 Years Ago Today

Back in time…

10 April 2021

Band: GUIDED BY VOICES (Dayton ohio)
Active: 1983–2004, 2010–2014, 2016–present

Released: 10 April 2001 – 20 years ago today

AllMusic/Mark Demig: “Every song here matters, with Pollard’s vocals at the top
of their form and the band sounds tight, forceful, and emphatic throughout. God
knows if the indie rock audience will ever forgive him for such obvious craft, but the
side of Pollard’s personality that thought touring with Cheap Trick was a great idea
finally gets the album he’s been waiting for with Isolation Drills.”
Full review: here. Score: 8/10.

Turn Up the Volume: If you make 33 albums in 38 years (3 LPs in only one year
in 2020, and a new one called Earth Man Blues out at the end of this month) you
must be the hardest working band in the world (hello, Radiohead?) and this is,
without a shadow of a doubt, one of their best.
