"English Little League" - the fourth album from the reunited "classic" GUIDED BY VOICES line-up. Deeper and less immediately accessible than last year's "Class Clown Spots a UFO" (for instance), but no less richly striated with layers of musical goo, this album is as much the work of a guild of master craftsmen as of a singular visionary genius.

"ELL" (fookin' 'ell!) travels from hieroglyphic to hieratic smoother than a pharaoh's cartouche, and if the quadratic equation that runs through the middle of the record from "Crybaby Four Star Hotel" to "Birds" doesn't solve every problem in your life then you've got actual problems.
