Blinding 2013 album ... their first in 22 years! Meticulous noise-pop 'n' woozy guitar tones from the peerless Irish outfit led by Kevin Shields.

"MBV leaves all other post-rock experimentalists looking like trivial dilettantes. If jet engines could sing, these would be their hymns". The Independent

"It's a good album, but not a great one, and though the long tail of history will eventually render such a long production time moot, it's certainly not a record justifying the ludicrous wait." Popmatters

On February 4th 2013 My Bloody Valentine pulled off one of the greatest surprises in modern music by releasing their often promised first full length album in 22 years, and making it available for free online via a internet stream. Well done Kevin Shields, better late than never. As a result this album has been subject to deliberation, cogitation and digestion on a epic scale (see above for some representative samples). For some critics it has provided a wonderful opportunity to dust down that old thesaurus and look up different words for "superlative" as they ascend to the alter of high praise and lose any pretence of objectivity. Others have been more cautious detecting a distinct absence of anything resembling a melody and strong hints that the preoccupations of "Isn't anything" haven't been advanced that far.

Let us start with a statement of fact when it comes to stature this is no "Loveless". There is nothing on here that really compares to the grandeur of "To here knows when", "Soon" or "Loomer". In another sense thank god its different - it would be a terrible indictment after 22 years if Shields came up with a "Loveless Part 2". So lets try to explain how this sounds after "wearing it around" for a month.

I was astonished by Loveless. Who cares... Forget about Loveless for a moment.
Just bless what the band has to offer today. Just focus on today.
I think this new album is remarkable, inventive and daring. It is an obsession. The array of textures is delightful.
I do not care if it took them 22 years to achieve 'that'. I do not care about the past.
Today we have been offered this humbly titled "m b v" and it gives me top grade pleasure every day since I've bought it.
Look, what would you do after a monument like Loveless?
Thank you Mr Shields. I bought the CD because I'd like you to make another one like this. And I don't mind waiting til 2035.

let's get straight to the point: i fully expect the vast majority of my bloody valentine fans to rate this a distant 3rd behind isn't anything and loveless

they were great records, this is not, just merely decent overall

i'd rate 3 songs as good, 1 dreadful, 2 poor, and 3 ok

but thankfully its not the disappointing, predictable and dreaded "change of direction" that normally means "if you like our previous stuff you probably won't like this" - its just that it doesn't quite have any of the punch of earlier mbv records, or as many of the amazing melodies

if you are reading this as an already converted mbv fan, then, like all fans, you will buy this, and so you should - but if you are new to the band, i'd strongly suggest you obtain isn't anything and/or loveless before this record

its not that its a bad record, its not..... its just very difficult to judge it without unconsciously comparing it to previous efforts - thats why, in isolation, i've given it 3 stars, because overall its ok - but in terms of my personal disappointment comparing this to isn't anything+loveless i would be ranking it as a 1 or 2 star effort

most of the modern day "professional" reviewers won't rubbish this record because:
a)they wouldn't dare
b)they never were around (maybe alive but not active in music!) at the time of release of i.

Kevin Shields and band don't reinvent the wheel but bring us a new set of classic shoegazing tunes as we're all back in 1991. May we consider it a sequel to Loveless? Maybe and maybe not. Although it has similar feel and vibe, 20 years is a long long time to face it as a mere continuation. I'd rather call it an extemporaneous effort made for us all that were awaiting MBV back. Listen to those ethereal voices, trancing guitars and eerie keys and remember that there are some much more in past lives than baggy trousers, crunchy guitars and anguished laments.

Some really nice textures and lovely melodic turns, combined with those smooth elusive vocals, help to make this another enjoyable album. Whilst I purchased Loveless when it first came out, out of curiosity really (maybe I liked the CD cover), I was never into the whole "Shoegaze" thing and I never hung out with that type of crowd. But, for some reason, Loveless always seemed to be in my easy reach CD pile and, later on, in my MP3 players and smart phones. I could hardly be called a fan, I didn't even know that this album existed until recently, but I'm glad I found out about it. Something organic and unrushed about it. Funny how your cuppa tea isn't always what you imagine it to be.
