Album Review: Let's Go Eat the Factory by Guided by Voices

The name is familiar to me but that's about it. These guys have been around since the late 80's hitting their peak in the 90's and breaking up in 2004. The reformed in 2012 and put out this album and have since followed it up with three more. Yes that's right they put out four albums in a year. That should give you some since of their music. Inspired by 60's prog rock and punk bands like The Ramones, these guys are known for cranking out short, hook heavy garage rock.

This album fits that mold to perfection with 21 tracks all sounding somewhat familiar in an odd sort of way. If you're in the right mood this could be a fun album to throw on, probably great for a day of playing electronic football.

Following the Rhapsody rating method I give it 2 out of 5 stars for Not Bad.
