Half Smiles of the Decomposed is the fifteenth album by Dayton, Ohio rock group Guided by Voices. It was the final album by the band before their 2010 reformation. All songs written by Robert Pollard. Everybody Thinks I'm a Raincloud When I'm Not Looking 3:20. Sleep Over Jack 3:04. Girls of Wild Strawberries 2:30. Gonna Never Have to Die 2:17. Window of My World 2:58. The Closets of Henry 2:31. Tour Guide at the Winston Churchill Memorial 3:02. Asia Minor 2:23. Comprised of a mere 14 songs in 42 minutes, half of which are over three minutes in length, Half Smiles of the Decomposed is a final departure from GBV's tradition of compact pop masterpieces, and while the production by occasional keyboard player Todd Tobias doesn't approach the slickness of Do the Collapse or Isolation Drills, this may be the polished and. attentive indie album Pollard and GBV have ever made.

The romanticized mythology of Guided by Voices in the mid-90s may have been one of the greatest tales of indie lore: A gang of bored Midwestern middle-agers, fueled by ethanol, gather nightly for basement recording sessions, and in doing so happen to lay down some of the greatest pop anthems ever poorly recorded. Even the shortest songs on Half Smiles Girls of Wild Strawberries, Gonna Never Have to Die would be the GBV equivalent of a side-long suite on older LPs, their 2-minute runtimes inflated by such routine features as second verses and chorus repetitions. September 16, 2004 4:00AM ET. Half Smiles of the Decomposed. Greg Kot. Half Smiles of the Decomposed is reportedly the final Guided by Voices studio album, and like many of the band's best, it's packed to bursting with sometimes inscrutable pleasures: melodies with the whiff of half-remembered classics, misbegotten home-taping experiments, arrangements that appear to collapse before resolving in brave choruses and, in Window of My World, the baroque folkie musings. Half Smiles Of The Decomposed. Your Score. 0 out of 10. Summary: After 20 years and over 20 albums, Dayton, Ohio's Guided By Voices led throughout its duration by Robert Pollard is calling it quits with this final release. Record Label: Matador. Genres: Indie, Rock. Though lacking in innovation, the final GBV album will please any longtime fan that prefers Game of Pricks to Chicken Blows. Pollards songwriting finally feels consistent, fully realized and commanding.
