Guided By Voices
UK Release date
US Release date
  1. 8.0 |   Mojo

    It's a generous and potent fix of Pollard eccentricity. Print edition only

  2. 8.0 |   All Music

    If Space Gun doesn't quite match that underappreciated masterpiece, it comes close enough to confirm that Guided by Voices are quietly in the midst of a late-career renaissance

  3. 7.5 |   A.V. Club

    It’s the the musical equivalent of eggs and toast at your favorite diner, perhaps not the group’s most distinctive release, but warm and nourishing nonetheless

  5. 7.0 |   Uncut

    Fizzes with an energy and seamless melody that recalls the band at their mid-'90s peak, and there's an intriguing assortment of songs to be found. Print edition only

  6. 7.0 |   Exclaim

    It seems as though this second reunion may be one where they're finally finding the sound they've been looking for as a reincarnated band — embracing their past and ready to bring in some of the new. Space Gun is one step closer to that

    Only death can slow Robert Pollard

  9. 6.0 |   Q

    While Space Gun has its moments of off-kilter brilliance, they are cancelled out by more earthbound, laboured-sounding fare. Print edition only

  10. 6.0 |   The Skinny

    Space Gun sees Guided by Voices tender a renewed sense of focus on their new album
