  1. 9.0 |   Slant Magazine

    Not only does the band’s output remain as inexhaustible and freewheeling as ever, the album stands as some of their best late-career work

  2. 8.0 |   All Music

    La La Land captures the incredibly rare state of a band still sounding fresh and curious on their 37th LP, and shows no indication of Pollard and co. stopping anytime soon

  3. 8.0 |   Uncut

    La La Land picks up where that album [Tremblers And Goggles By Rank] - their second of 2022 - left off. Print edition only

  4. 7.5 |   Spectrum Culture

    There are three constants in life: death, taxes and Robert Pollard releasing records

  5. 7.0 |   PopMatters

    Guided By Voices’ latest lineup has helped add another tool to Robert Pollard’s songwriting toolbox on La La Land. It’s a look that they wear well

  6. 6.0 |   Under The Radar

    Kudos for trying to expand a tried and tested formula, but a lot of La La Land sounds like dozens of fragments of tunes crazy glued together in a hurry

  7. 6.0 |   Mojo

    Midway through, La La Land derails, as Queen Of Spaces errs into forlorn folky picking, while Slowly On The Wheel opens with one-finger piano and voice. The Chugging Face Eraser and Baba O'Riley-ish Pockets pulls things together. Print edition only
