By the numbers indi fare. Predictable compositions and no tracks that strike me as remarkable. Don't get the shoegaze classification either it's low fi indi as far as I can tell. Visit "In Ribbons" by the Pale Saints instead. It's not a bad album but I had high expectations.

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.

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
