'August By Cake' Reviews

We currently know 8 reviews for "August By Cake" by Guided By Voices. People have mixed feelings about the record but in general seem to like it.

"August By Cake is Robert Pollard's 100th album, and a double album to boot. Not only that but a great double album."

80 % Under The Radar
"This is Guided by Voices sounding free and wild, and it's ultimately more satisfying than any of the "classic lineup" GbV reunion efforts that appeared between 2012 and 2014."

80 % AllMusic
"The music barely hangs together at times, but the potential for the roller-coaster to go flying off the tracks is, as always, part of the fun."

75 % The A.V. Club
"After over 30 years in pursuit of the perfect song, Pollard has finally started to recognize the album for everything it can be."

71 % Pitchfork
"As scattered as August by Cake sometimes feels, its openness is also fertile ground for the different sides of Pollard’s music."

70 % PopMatters
"Pollard hasn’t delivered an all-enticing album in a while, and with all of its hidden gems, August By Cake suffers from having too many songs that just aren’t fulfilling enough."

60 % Drowned In Sound
"August By Cake gets interesting when tracks like "Warm Up to Religion" and "What Begins on New Year's Day" tap into the melancholy that's occasionally haunted Pollard's melodies. Aside from those tracks, though, he shows little interest in the tinkering that made his earlier work so interesting."

60 % Exclaim
"The main pitfall of this record is its pacing. Bob’s best moments are lightning fast, like the 28 tracks in 41 minutes Alien Lanes. By contrast, this record is 32 tracks in 71 minutes. Its top moments are when it is moving the fastest."

58 % Pretty Much Amazing
