Guided By Voices - Zeppelin Over China

Exclusive Album Premiere: Robert Pollard Talks Guided By Voices' Massive New Album 'Zeppelin Over China' - Gothamist


"It is somehow surprising that a release from an artist with over 100 albums to their name can sound so inventive and new, but at the same time, it’s completely unsurprising and outright expected when that artist is Robert Pollard." - The Spill Magazine

"Zeppelin Over China’s 32 songs provide plenty of high-energy rockers, mid-tempo contemplations and just enough general weirdness to let you know that this is, indeed, a Guided by Voices record." - Spectrum Culture

"The opening stretch alone offers babbling, sinewy post-punk, dreamy jangle pop and an ominous dirge in quick succession, while other stretches yield delicate filigrees of chamber pop, lysergic behemoths and heavy slabs of concrete rock. It's everything you've ever loved about Guided By Voices, all smashed together in one record.” - The Line of Best Fit

"GBV is relevant and releasing material every bit as good as their heyday. Hell, maybe this is their heyday. There is no doubt that this is the most talented group Pollard has ever put together." - The Fire Note





Guided By Voices looks to the future in an exclusive debut of its new 7" "You Own The Night" on The A.V. Club
