Robert Pollard, 'Space City Kicks' (Guided by Voices Inc.)

7
Space City Kicks
Critical Mass
Release Date: January 18, 2011
Label: Guided By Voices Inc.

by Jon Young

Defying logic, the famously productive Robert Pollard is getting even more prolific with age. One of five Pollard-related releases slated over a ten-month stretch (plus a Guided by Voices reunion tour), Space City Kicks offers a hodgepodge of brilliant guitar pop and annoying, unfinished throwaways, but this time the former ("I Wanna Be Your Man in the Moon") easily overshadows the latter ("Children Ships"). Now, it would only be fair if Pollard revealed the location of the fountain of youth he's been frequenting.
