The weirdest album Guided By Voices ever made.

The weirdest album GbV ever made, Vampire isn't the best place to get your toes wet for the first time. But if you feel like a fuzzbath, by all means, go crazy. Some songs sound like they were not only recorded on a boombox, but on a boombox with a cassette that had been used several times and then left to bake in the sun. Vampire is also GBV's most “metal” album, with songs built around the sort of thick power chords one expects the same fake fans chanting the band's name on Propeller would want to hear.
