Styles We Paid For is Guided By Voices’ third album of 2020 and it
stands as a testament to this 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. The massively crescendo-ing
opening track “Megaphone Riley” seems to be inspired by a diabolical
politician-in-chief, and like an indie-rock Nostradamus, presciently
highlights the “Jumbo Virus”, while in the final couplet of the album
closer “When Growing Was Simple” Pollard urges “Don’t drink and
drive / stay at home and eat”.
Other album highlights include include Big Rock standouts like the
incredibly hooky “Mr. Child” with the band in full arena rock power
swing, while the titular protagonist is mentioned by name no less than
sixteen times; the touching beauty and lyrical relevance of “Stops”
and the majestically elegant “In Calculus Stratagem”, a bubbly pop
rock joyride in “Crash at Lake Placebo”; the subtle current-day
technological observations of “They Don’t Play The Drums Anymore”
and the sleek “Electronic Windows To Nowhere” (written by a man
who owns neither a smart phone or a computer). It’s notably heavy in
it’s worldliness, lyrical content, texture, and approach—and rides out
like a cinematic journey of the bizarro world one find oneself in.
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.
