Motivational Jumpsuit marks the first GBV album of what seems like it could be a few in 2014 and a monumental 21st proper record for the band. Never short on songs, the issue with the maelstrom of post-reunion material was more an issue of inconsistency. The four albums and one EP's worth of serviceable and sometimes spotty new music could have easily been cherry-picked for one stellar album, free of a lot of what some fans perceived as filler tracks.

While indie rock icons Guided by Voices' recent albums-five in two years-have by no means tarnished their legacy, they haven’t exactly expanded upon it either. So it goes with Motivational Jumpsuit, though it's the shortest and strongest of the recent batch.

There's no end in sight for the seemingly endless stream of album releases from lo-fi rock gods Guided By Voices. Following yet another announcement from mastermind Robert Pollard that GBV were throwing in their 31-year-old towel after last year's English Little League, Motivational Jumpsuit, the band's fifth studio album since the band's recent reformation finds the band continuing to the mix of psychedelia, garage-rock, post-punk and pop that they've perfected over time.

Far and away the most pleasing of the 6 LPs during the Staggering Reunion, Motivational Jumpsuit gets a slight bump up of a quarter point, yet remains just short of essential due to one of the worst sets of Toby songs in ages. The opener is an underrated gem that succeeds simply because it's kept short. In fact, the whole album benefits from a rough approach to recording and keeping to shorter songs. Writer's Bloc offers a heavy version of the quirk we love from Bob, and Child Activist is another near classic to start the album strong before hitting the first masterpiece in Planet Score. Save the Company also attains instant classic status, and Toby's lone good contribution to this one, Record Level Love, follows. I Am Columbus is a Stooges style raver that precedes a 2 song lag (the awful Toby track, Calling Up Washington, is grating and unforgivable). Zero Elasticity stomps with the best and Bird With No Name is the sort of quiet contemplation we prefer from Bob. Another truly terrible Toby track precedes the magnificent Vote For Me Dummy, a cool SOUNDING Toby track follows, and then Bob coughs up a couple of stinkers before the sublime Alex and the Omegas (yet another epic album closer form the master of the form). It may not quite evoke the golden age of King Shit, but this is about as close as he comes these days outside of some of his side projects (most notably the Circus Devils). If only we had been given the tight 11-13 track album we deserved, the reunion would have been complete.
