|Keith Morris (Off!, Black Flag, Circle Jerks) from a 2014 Magnet article: "I hit a wall as to what or who to write about next, but I looked up from my laptop and was immediately drawn to the Guided By Voices at the Fillmore in San Francisco poster hanging on the wall in front of me. Not to get all hippy dippy, but the flow of my universe chose my final subject for me: the songwriting genius of Robert Pollard and his varying cast and crew of musical compadres, GBV."
Then he went on to write: "if you’ve never listened to them the best recording to start with would be 1994’s Bee Thousand. “I Am A Scientist” and “Tractor Rape Chain” are pop gems that rank up there with almost anything by the Beatles and any of their contemporaries. Some of my other GBV faves are “I Am A Tree,” “Bulldog Skin”, “Not Behind The Fighter Jet” and “Jane Of The Waking Universe” off of 1997’s Mag Earwhig!. “Auditorium,” “Motor Away” and “My Valuable Hunting Knife” from Alien Lanes, which was released in 1995. “The Official Ironmen Rally Song” with “Lord Of Overstock” and “Underwater Explosions,” which are tracks on 1996’s Under The Bushes Under The Stars. And if you even care, you’ll notice that these songs and albums are all from the ’90s. Remember that GBV has released 22 albums and Robert Pollard has released 21 albums, so these songs i’ve mentioned are only the beginning!"
