Product Description

The original studio album has been painstakingly re-mastered by Kevin Shields at Metropolis Studios in London. My Bloody Valentine remain one of the most unique and thrilling bands of the last 25 years. Sonic pioneers, they stood alone in the late 80s/early 90s, their two albums sounded like nothing that had gone before.

It seems this album has been completely overshadowed by the seminal Loveless but it is a shame as this is a real classic album. It is probably more generally accessible than Loveless but this doesn't mean it is of less worth. The sensual combination of the male and female voices off of each other and swooping guitar washes was totally new and still sounds fresh and startling. Melodically Soft as Snow but Warm Inside and No More Sorry are in a place somewhere between John Barry and Lee Hazlewood. A trully beautiful album with an edge.

At the end of the eighties post smiths and before grunge creation records produced some truly influential records. This is one of the best.'isn't anything' defines the MBV sound that muso journalists are still prone to name drop. Layers ands layers of guitar with some crisp drumming result in a dynamic range of styles from the ambient 'No more sorry' to the true speed mosh/shoe gazing 'sueisfine'. However my favourite is the outright sexual 'soft as snow' (but warm inside). Forget the 'dad rock' of Oasis this is why people will really mourn the demise of creation.

The sound quality is waaaaay better then the original release. It sounds less shrill, more warm, and has more depth and clarity. The original sounds thin in comparison.

Isn't Anything opens with machine gun snare pops and the fiddly bass intro of `Soft as Snow (But Warm Inside)', a song full of lysergic guitar chords and strange vocal hums that sound like a giant hulking Manga robot creaking to life and striding across the post-apocalyptic ruins of Neo Tokyo.
`Lose My Breath' seems to splutter over a slightly discordant acoustic dirge before Bilinda Butcher's breathy "ooh"s create an oddly haunting melody that can't but make your nerve endings tingle. Beneath the off-key guitars and whirring feedback of `Cupid Come' lies the pop sensibility of bands like the Byrds.
Kevin Shields has an uncanny ability to come up with unexpected and amazing chord progressions that seem to defy all sense of song-writing logic, and the progression in the verse to `(When You Wake) You're Still in a Dream' illustrates this perfectly. It is a song that seems to take punk into a new and exciting direction, with the urgency of A Minor Threat's straight-edge hardcore, but with a unique and undeniable sense of musicality.
`No More Sorry' is an absolutely heart-wrenching piece of music. I imagine that if an alchemist attempted to transmute a feeling of desolation and loneliness into musical form, `No More Sorry' would be the result. Its chord changes capture an overwhelming sense of dull aching sadness - this isn't self-indulgent teenage misery, it is a quiet, subdued sense of loss and genuine sadness.
`All I Need' foreshadows the intense wall of sound that characterised Isn't Anything's seminal follow-up, Loveless. The droned guitars reverberate and flood the mix with an almost unrelenting torrent of noise. I say almost because it always feels controlled, as if being gently guided by supernatural forces.

umm...is this ever going to come out?
i love this album...it's one of the best examples of monged out guitar noise ever (alongside killers like skullflower's 'form destroyer' & les rallizes denudes' '77 live'). the original vinyl sounded great but the cd sucked. i'm dying to hear these remasters...speaking of which, when the heck is mr shields gonna put out the rest of the mbv catalogue??? everybody's waiting (about 2 years now) for these reissues, but they're the only mbv releases that it's been possible to find on cd since the early 90's...sort it out! and make some new music!

Hadn't heard this for years as I had it on vinyl. This is how indie used to sound - raw, loud and different. Modern 'indie' bands should take note ('scuse pun)

Its been a long time coming but its been well worth the wait. I have owned and loved this LP since it came out. The remastered version is like hearing it for the 1st time all over again.So thanks to Kevin ,it took a while but it was like I said it was worth that wait.

A bone fide classic, wherein MBV came out from under the shadow of the Velvet Underground, Sonic Youth and The Jesus And Mary Chain to forge one of the most accomplished guitar LPs EVER.
Incorporating the Cocteau Twins' swooning dreamscapes and Public Enemy's industrial funk (yes! - long before 'Glider' they were highly influenced by PE's 'Yo! Bum Rush The Show's churning, grinding beats and FX) along with a highly innovative use of microtones (sounds in between standard notes and chords made by bending their guitars' tremelo arms) Isn't Anything's songs aren't 'about' love, sex, emotions but SOUND AND FEEL LIKE love, sex, emotions - a veritable wind-tunnel of hyper-sensitised moments in and out of love and lust - this is what French philosopher Roland Barthes would have written his famous essay 'The Pleasure Of The Text' for if he'd been a music journalist - 'it cuts, it crackles, it comes - that is bliss'.
This music feels like the emotions coursing through your veins and nervous system, approaching but resisting the urge to dissolve completely into ambient abstraction, just as we all resist the urge to succumb to schizophrenia and death in our struggle through life. My Bloody Valentine's Loveless and Isn't Anything are two unique musical adventures that transcend any redundant stylistic ghetto that they may have inadvertently spawned.
(And for the record, I listen to as much music - avant-rock, electronica, classical, 20th C orchestral etc - as I have time and money to)
