Así es como debería de sonar el shoegaze siempre. Brillante.

Not quite as layered as "Souvlaki", and feels closer to 90's alt rock. Solid record.

Another crazy good album by this masters of beautiful noise. While Souvlaki is definitely these guys shining star, this album is pretty close. Once you hear Spanish Air you know you're into something good

Slowdive continue with the philosophy laid down by My Bloody Valentine and Cocteau Twins but with 'Just For A Day', the band took their music to new ethereal extremes. Never has the synthesis of the Dream Pop and Shoegaze genres been so perfectly realized than on this album. The result is a symphonic psychedelic sound of beauty that encompasses hypnotizing harmonies and breathtaking soundscapes, the results of which are deeply psychological and mystical.

From johnner
At times both serene and tragic, Just for a Day's mixture of ambience and hush-inducing soundscapes crystallises perfection to a glistening pin-prick.

I really don't know what I'm rating here. I bought the double disc 2005 reissue. The album itself is nice, nothing as special as "Souvlaki", but really hypnotic stuff anyhow. But the real standout here is disc 2 which brings together Slowdive's first 3 amazing EPs. I actually prefer it to the album. The best of shoegaze is on that disc. If you're remotely interested, hunt down this beautiful reissue.
