"August By Cake" is a prototypical Guided by Voices album in that the best stuff (and there are some truly classic GBV on this album) is great and the worst songs (I'm happy to report these are kept to a minimum) are dreadful. Considering this is GBV's first double album, it contains a good album and a half's worth of the band's finest work in at least fifteen years. "Goodbye Note", "Cheap Buttons" and "Try It Out (It's Nothing)" are three major highlights -- and there are more. Weaker material like "Upon the Circus Bus", "Chew the Sand" and "Packing the Dead Zone" come from the same well of regrettables main songwriter Robert Pollard usually pads albums with. But this is part of the charm. August By Cake is a great rock album.
