#074: Do The Collapse by Guided By Voices

June 12, 2012

With Guided By Voices reunited and releasing their second of three (!) albums in 2012, we decided to spend episode #74 reviewing the 1999 album Do the Collapse.

When Robert Pollard abandoned his trademark lo-fi sound to release a major label album, produced by the legendary Cars leader Ric Ocasek, it's safe to the say the reviews were mixed. And when we say mixed, we mean numerous die-hard fans hated it with a passion. But is their vitriol justified, or is this an under-appreciated gem in the GBV catalog? Tune in to find out.
