5.0 out of 5 stars An Ep that places you on a higher plane. 3 Feb 2001
Format:Audio CD
In 1990 'My Bloody Valentine' were already on their way to becoming rock geniuses. 'Isn't Anything' blew the lid of music and introduced music lovers to a whole new sound, driven by sonic architecture akin to godliness and luscious guitars. This ep was released just before their second LP 'Loveless' and took guitar lovers to new heights with their mixture of looped strings and intertwining harmonies. Kevin Shields furthered the sound of dance music and indie alike when he gave us the gift of 'Soon' - a 7 minute groove that lifts you off the ground from start to finish. 'Glider' is a backwards pull through dense undergrowth, listening to all the animals that live beneath the layers of noise, the sound of dinosaurs comprehending their future extinction. 'Don't Ask Why' and 'Off Your Face', a couple of delicately layered songs of beauty that remind you why you listen to music in the first place. Vocal fragility backed by perfect music, this ep is well worth every penny paid for it and is a must for any true music fan who likes to experiment with the depth of their record collection. A MUST.

5.0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC! 10 Sep 2001
By Diss13
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a fantastic record and should be bought immediately.... If you are just starting down the MBV road and want some starters before you buy an album, then this is it.. If you have the albums and want to start plugging the gaps in your collection, then buy it! Mr Kevin Shields, and Belinda Butcher are just fantastic on a record together.. Her voice is beautiful overlaying Kevins own voice and the swirling, drifting sounds that will lift your soul..

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant ep from 1990. 29 Jan 2003
By Jason Parkes #1 HALL OF FAME
Format:Audio CD
The Glider ep surfaced in 1990, much anticipated by admirers of 1988's mindblowing Isn't Anything?- though the album Loveless wouldn't appear til 1991 (with lead track Soon on). The wait between Isn't & Loveless seemed to be epic; compare the epoch shattering silence since Loveless to the James Bond cover that constitutes their material since...
Soon takes up where tracks like Soft as Snow & the bonus single with Isn't Anything (that sampled a Public Enemy instrumental from It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back, as Madonna/Lenny Kravitz&Ingrid Chavez did on 1990s Justify My Love) left off- the main beat is verging on hip-hop. Over this beat are Kevin Shields vocals that appear to swoon into feedback- definitely capturing the blissed out feel of the chemically enhanced second summer of love. Along with Loaded & WFL, this was a key point where Indie Music met Dance music. The stringlike sounds are almost close to world music, and not far from the sounds emitted by artists like Ultramarine & Czuckay/Wobble.
The title track is an addictive whirlpool of feedback namechecked in Rick Moody's excellent short-story collection Demonology (2001). This is the same place where MBV's finest moment, 1991's Loomer, emanated from- though it has a feel like 70's Miles Davis (He Loved Him Madly) or the more avant-garde classical music (Philip Glass, Steve Reich, Piano Magic). But they are only pointers, as this is off the map and everything that indulgence like Lennon's Two Lions should have been. Alien soundscapes indeed...
Don't Ask Why is almost acoustic, evidence that Shields & Co were quite capable of songs- but were becoming bored by their constraints (a bit like Talk Talk).

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good throwback to the age of progrock 4 Jan 2014
Format:Audio CD
One is tempted to call this ep for progpop. The band is experimenting with all kinds of weird stuff and sometimes it is brilliant at other times as dull and selfindulgent as progrock. May want to give it a listen before buying to make sure it is your cup of indie music.
