Is Bee Thousand their only great album or something? They seem to have put out a fair few albums in their time. I thought Bee Thousand was okay, nothing too great but definitely not bad.

Alien Lanes is very highly regarded too, but a bit harder to get into. Did I Am A Scientist not wow you sufficently?

My favorite is blimps go 90 off Alien Lanes

Bee Thousand has remained my favorite album for nearly a year now. I remember secluding myself in my room and listening to it over and over and when I checked my iPod I listened to the album 36 times in one weekend hahaha

Western Civ - “Goldheart Mountaintop Queen Directory” and “My Valuable Hunting Knife”
Cymbals Eat Guitars - “Gleemer”
Sorry About Dresden - “Echos Myron”
Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit - “Everywhere With Helicopter”
Crooked Fingers - “Tractor Rape Chain”
Elf Power - “Man Called Aerodynamics”
I Was Totally Destroying It - “I Am Produced”
The Pneurotics - I Am a Tree”
La Sera (Katy Goodman of Vivian Girls) - “Watch Me Jumpstart”
Kelley Deal with Buffalo Killers - “Scalding Creek”
Blitzen Trapper - “Hot Freaks”
Superdrag - “A Salty Salute”
David Kilgour (The Clean) - “How Loft Am I”
Thurston Moore - “Stabbing A Star,”

I mean; Thurston Moore, Blitzen Trapper, Flaming Lips, The Breeders, Cymbals Eat Guitars... that's pretty damn cool, isn't it?

Love Bee Thousand. I ordered the "director's cut" off of their label, and while it's nice to have, the original album is perfection on its own.

Will have to check out that tribute album when it comes out.

Did anyone attend Matador at 21, or any of the other Guided By Voices reunions?

I love the classic lineup of all the incarnations. PRobably followed closely by the Mag Earwhig version of the band - when it was Bob and Cobra Verde.
