I can't express how much I love this record and I'm so glad it's finally getting the recognition it deserves.

A very soft and gentle sound that's pleasant to listen to but there's little distinction between tracks and nothing memorable. Pretty but slight.

One of the two best shoegaze records ever.

The first 3 songs is some of the most beautiful music ever recorded. Machine Gun specifically is on some kind of spiritual plane that is indescribable. Maybe one of, if not the, greatest songs ever recorded. I get bored after that though and I don’t know why. I’ve tried to love this whole album but for some reason the first 3 songs are the only ones I connect to. Maybe the rest will click at some point. As is, Loveless is still miles above this for me

How did I not find this sooner??

After two listens I'm already convinced it pushes out Loveless as my #1 shoegaze record...

It's a shame how this was originally unappreciated.

About that flow entering a groups mind at the exact time. About being exactly right not having a soul left, after the studiosessions. I guess wildly

A very pleasant, dreamy sounding album that I've only recently owned - it's good and growing on me more. As it seems to be the law that you have to compare it to Loveless, I will. It's not as good (its a close run thing), but an easier listen.
