Caustic Truths (Toronto ON)
Issue #86
Kerry Donoghue

Guided By Voices
Universal Truths and Cycles
Matador Records

They have been making music since the eighties, and still manage to sound original. This album showcases flexibility at its finest through song lengths, instrument variety and tempo fluctuations. 19 songs, each distinct work to form a well-balanced album that feels finished without feeling produced. This is one of the most fluid albums I have heard in a very long time. Get your hands all over this.
