4.0 out of 5 stars Mid price compilation of shoegazing act... 3 July 2007
By Jason Parkes #1 HALL OF FAME
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Some might baulk at the idea, but here it is, 'The Best of Chapterhouse', a one disc primer of the Reading act associated with the early 90s scenes tagged Shoegazing (though Shoegaze appears to be the term people go with now), Dream Pop (coined either by an American or Simon Reynolds), or, more cruelly, the Scene that Celebrates Itself. The latter was a music weekly take on the loose net of bands that generally stemmed from the Thames Valley at the time - mainly a social thing, and a tag that was applied to such bands as Blur, The Boo Radleys, The Catherine Wheel, Curve, Lush, Moose, Pale Saints, Revolver, Ride, Slowdive, Swervedriver, The Telescopes, and of course, our heroes of this review, Chapterhouse! Though it should be noted that many bands have cited Shoegaze/Shoegazing/Dream Pop and we have regular gigs themed around it, as well as bands like Sigur Ros, Jenniferever, Mogwai, Radio Dept, Sennen, Interpol, The Jonestown etc who nod to this movement. In wider terms, these bands can be seen as following in the slipstream of late 80s sonic pioneers like AR Kane, Cocteau Twins, Galaxie 500, Hugo Largo, The Jesus & Mary Chain, Loop, & My Bloody Valentine. From the poppier likes of Chapterhouse and Ride, to the more fractal likes of Bark Psychosis, Main and Seefeel, this was a "movement" that took in quite a wide region. & I always thought that a lot of the Shoegaze outfits weren't a million miles from later hip scenes like Slowcore, Math or Post Rock - play some of these records against material by Codeine, Low, or Slint and you'll get the idea...

'The Best of Chapterhouse' pretty much does what it says in the title, a 15 track compilation of material from their two albums Whirlpool (1991) and Blood Music (1993), with the odd b-side/ep track for good measure.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good mix of songs, but a bit sloppy on Sony BMGs part 8 Feb 2010
By Russell Chamberlain - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The music contained on this best of is great-Chapterhouse are a strong example of the Shoegaze era. My only complaint with this collection is Sony's packaging. On the cover of the CD they list a series of songs that are supposed to appear on the record and the last song on the list is "Treasure". This song is not on the CD. Also inside the booklet their are only 14 songs listed with publishing information. For some reason they left off the 15th track "On the way to fly".

Anyway as a release the record company could have done better. I just think it is a little sloppy and shows this to be a rush job without much care for the band and its catalog. It is not as much of a mess as their (Sony BMG) Boo Radleys "Best of the Boo Radleys", which suffered from questionable inclusion and criminal exclusions.

Ultimately, this is still a good starting point for an introduction to Chapterhouse.
3.0 out of 5 stars Chapterhouse review by Mansel 10 Feb 2014

A nice sound from a band in the early 90s. They offer something different in their music. Easy going rock and melodious tunes makes the listener just want to float away.

4.0 out of 5 stars Shu-gaze Under the Radar 29 Mar 2010
By soldiermedic73 - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Not on the level of Ride, MBV, or Slowdive, but a band from this era that deverves some notice. The drums sound a bit dated, but the over all feel is still there.
