List Rules Only Guided By Voices albums. No side projects or solo albums

What are the best Guided By Voices albums? This list includes all of GBV's greatest hits, arguably some of the best albums ever. Can anyone argue that 'Bee Thousand' isn't one of the best albums of the 1990s? Still, fans of Guided By Voices might agree that all of the band's albums are excellent, but they won't always agree on which ones are truly the best. That's what this list is all about: You vote for the GBV albums that you think deserve the title of "best," you vote down any you didn't like as much and of course, you rerank this list of GBV albums anyway you want.Guided by Voices' discography is impressive. The band, after all, has been together in some fashion for decades, producing outstanding music. They are undoubtedly one of the greatest musical artists of the '90s, but they are far from finished. Some think that GBV's 2012 album, 'The Bears for Lunch,' is one of their best, certainly worthy of a top five ranking. Disagree? Just vote that album down. From 'Alien Lanes' to 'Bee Thousand' to 'Under the Bushes Under the Stars,' enjoy perusing Guided By Voices' best albums and ranking them however you like.
