5.0 out of 5 stars In the shadows there is a classic 6 Nov 2003
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the wait 16 May 2012
By Fur-Q
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars them elusive reissues 31 Jan 2010
Format:Audio CD
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Underrated 29 April 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If MBV had never released Isn't Anything,then this would be far more widely rated.
For me,this is a very, very close second to that album
An essential sister album to Isn't Anything

5.0 out of 5 stars A true indie classic 8 Feb 2013
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
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)

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the wait.. 11 May 2012
Format:Audio CD
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.

By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
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)

5.0 out of 5 stars The best
Possibly one of the defining albums of the 1990's who inspired a host of copycat sounds. Your music collection is worthless without this album in it
