Guided by Voices' "Back to the Lake"

We're taking apart / twenty years of summers / a house on a lake / no one can care for / a loon pokes up for a look / a last call for sunset swims / politics & poetics will have to wait

I really like this song. And they're from Ohio, which I didn't realize before! What's their best album, if one was going to check out more?

Hey Chris,

GBV has so many albums--many of them more lo-fi than this one, but I'd rank them in this way:
1) Bee Thousand
2) Alien Lanes
3) Under the Bushes Under the Stars
The first two are indie-rock genius. Almost everything else has great songs....
