Circus Devils, 'Sgt. Disco' (Ipecac)

Sgt. Disco
Critical Mass
Label: Ipecac

by Josh Modell

Still hoping Robert Pollard has another Bee Thousand in his dusty, song-filled attic? Well, Circus Devils, a trio he occupies with other Guided by Voices alums, never approaches GBV's glory days with these 32 weird, unwieldy, and unsatisfying songs. Pollard's ideas fly by furiously, but rarely amount to much more than raw sketches driven to madness by repetition. Sure, give the Devils their due for slight sonic experimentation, but it'd take a staunch Pollard apologist to excuse this mess.
