A great shoegaze album. People will always compare this with Loveless, and while I may prefer Loveless, it isn't really a fair comparison. They are two very different albums. The sound on this album is very ethereal, and beautiful. My favorite tracks are Machine Gun, Allison, All Together Now

A fantastic Shoegaze album, the droning guitars, soft vocals, and all of the other instrumentation makes me feel like I'm in another dimension. Alison, Machine Gun, 40 Days, Dagger, When the Sun Hits, and Souvlaki Space Station are my favorites. This is a pretty good starting point for someone getting into Shoegaze/Dream Pop..

Not quite as good as Loveless, but so close. Machine Gun is absolutely perfect though.

Great album. I feel like it's more accessible but less complex than My Bloody Valentine's "Loveless", but maybe I was just paying attention more to this one. I feel like this album is really underrated, and it should be higher up on the charts.

I'm glad to see When The Sun Hits rated so highly now. When I first listened to this album it wasn't even top three.
