Guided By Voices - Songs We Paid For (2020)
Styles We Paid For is Guided by Voices' third album of 2020 and stands as a testament to the year in isolation, reflecting these dark days through Robert Pollard's prism, with the band sounding as confident and authoritative as ever.
The fifteen tracks were recorded remotely during quarantine from five states (Ohio, New York, New Jersey, Virginia, Tennessee) to comprise GBV's ninth album since 2017. Pollard's searing vocals hold center stage, with endless melodic invention and impeccable phrasing.
While other bands have been napping, GBV have achieved their second consecutive hat-trick (three albums per annum), and have further cemented their status as rock legends for achieving more in this bleak year then most bands do across their entire careers.
