My Son Cool by Guided By Voices

I must keep a journal
I must boast a victory

Alien Lanes was the fantastic follow-up album to Bee Thousand. Guided by Voices fans have and will debate which album is superior, but there is no need to argue because both are brilliant works of lo-fi rock. A personal favorite from Alien Lanes is 'My Son Cool', a rock anthem recorded on four track or eight track. There is no need to wonder what this would sound like in the studio because songs like these exist to remind us why we go out and buy four tracks and eight tracks.

    Through the years I've destroyed via neglect/wore out (cassette) or lost like 6 copies of B000 and still have my initial copy of AL. That says something I suppose, but love them about equally for different reasons.
