Guided by Voices Alien Lanes (Matador) After nine albums accompanied by foaming-at-the-mouth critical adulation, you’d think Guided By Voices would be ripe for commercial breakout. But Robert Pollard’s fragmented, hallucinatory compositions and rudimentary production serve as a kind of insurance against overexposure. This 28-cut release, which holds its own against last year’s Bee Thousand, will keep the secret safe, at least until they succumb to 24-track studio polish. Stay tuned. B+ -Mike Flaherty
