REUNITED 'VOICES' The indie rock band reunites after 15 years to produce shining tunes

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Release Date: Jan 17, 2012; Lead Performance: Guided By Voices; Genre: Indie Rock; Production: Guided by Voices Inc.

It's been 15 years since the ''classic'' GBV lineup stopped putting out the tuneful, delightfully shambolic albums that became their ­signature. Now reunited and intent on rebottling that boozy magic, the boys have dusted off their four-tracks and revisited their basements. Like previous efforts, Let's Go Eat the Factory seats shining riffsters alongside hypnotically inscrutable interludes, though much of it sounds more belabored and less beer-soaked than those of yore. B+

Best Tracks:
Delicate ditty Who Invented the Sun
Throw-back Doughnut for a Snowman
