I really like the album, but I'm much more into their more experimental stuff, like the 5 EP and the In Mind remixes.

This album is the definition of beauty... just incredible. I can't explain that with words, you must listen it and find out why. 'When the sun hits' probably one of the most beautiful songs i have ever listened.

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

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...
