A lot like the same song, over and over, in different ways. Nothing wrong about that, but I don't know if it will be real love yet. But those sad floating autumn guitars will probably do it to me, soon.

Slowdive is one of my personal favorite groups, and their comeback record was absolutely magical, so I came into this record with an anti-#1 bias when it came to ranking it....

...but keeping it out of my handful of favorites for this year would be simply delusional on my part. It's really fucking good.

With "Lost in the Dream" being one of my all time favourite albums, I never expected it to come this damn close. The opening song feels weak (especially compared to "Under the Pressure"), but then it follows up with Pain which I think is one of the best songs on here. The absolute highlight on this album is Thinking of a Place. When it came out I was afraid it would be a rarity on this album, but it just fits right in with the rest. Can't imagine any other album to come this year being better than this for me.

First impression: the dynamically rich sound of 'Lost in the Dream' has made way for a more 'modern', pumped up, in-your-face production/mastering style. Not nearly as nice to the ears (at least to -my- ears).
Favorite tracks: the ones that remind me of 'Lost in the Dream'
I'm not getting the opening track, maybe after some more listens.. In that case I'll update my comment on this album..
Loved the previous album! This one.. not so much.. for now..

WTF, people? A 6 at much. It's more of the same with little to none experimentation. Not to mention the melodramatic and pseudo philosophic lyrics.
