5.0 out of 5 stars My Bloody Word. 30 Sep 2006
Format:Audio CD
This album is like the collision of heaven and hell in aural form, beautiful melodies and angelic vocals melded flawlessly with crushing walls of guitar and drums.

This is the record that welcomes with open arms both hardcore riffage and the more tuneful sensibilities that most fans of music in or around the rock genre forgo as if loud music is incapable of being beautiful.

If you like My Bloody Valentine, Serena-Maneesh will interest you, clearly influenced by MBV but with lush production values that don't detract from the raw edge.

Superb.

5.0 out of 5 stars Danish Splendour 7 Jun 2010
Format:Audio CD
There are obvious comparisons here with the lush distorted sounds of MBV, but don't let that dissuade you from picking up this exceptional album, which has a definite carachter of it's own.

With SMs more pounding simple drumming the even the most 'rock 'n' roll' songs take on a certain shoe gazey dance feel to them with great noise crescendoes and euphoric 'hands in the air' blasts of power inbetween the disonance.

Ranging from Noisecore to Fuzzy punkpop, SM display a knack for layering and playing with noise as an extra instrument in qute a number of ways.

beautiful complex music but with a rock 'n' roll attitude - layer upon layer. If you can get through a few listens, there's just so much more to discover.

5.0 out of 5 stars astounding 22 Sep 2006
By Nate - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I buy a lot of music, but this stands out as one of the best albums I've come across in the last few years. Noisy yet melodic, chaotic yet controlled, this album is a blissful sonic universe. I absolutely love it. It's almost like a reincarnation of My Bloody Valentine, if Kevin Shields had more budget and more technology. Just awesome.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hmmmmmmmmm 9 Aug 2006
By Lovblad - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Serena Maneesh plays a kind of noisy experimental indie-rock that is a natural continuation of early Sonic Youth, but simply much better recorded. The songs are usually slow and long with prolonged outdrawn introductions. It also reminds of Loveless-era My Bloody Valentine because of the stoned female vocals. The songs also have an ethereal quality to them that is quite unique. It is extremely derivative so anybody liking the previously cited groups will really enjoy this. It does however lack that little something that made these bands produce great stuff. There are also a few songs that are not that great. While I would not be as negative as the other reviewer I must agreee that it lacks greatness. Sorry, guys, I really wanted to like this. Actually Giant drag who are also very derivative along the same lines have managed to pull off something better even if they have opted for a more melodic approach than this Norwegian group has and people would be better advised to buy their CD.
5.0 out of 5 stars Rich melodic indie shoegaze rock, sometimes lush and beautiful 13 July 2009
By devDiction - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I love this music because of it's richness, guitar noises, interesting textures and structures, great melodies and because it rocks. Diverse, yet a unique fingerprint.
