4.0 out of 5 stars essential stuff for collectors and discography geeks, 6 May 2005
Originally issued in 1981, this still is the best on the BB's vinyl discography. Since it appears that Elliott lost the ambition and credit to update it, the waiting is for a new fanatic to write the 1981-2005 volume.
Elliott's work was corrected on some details through scattered research in the past 25 years and the benefit of hindsight. Yet, these corrections about all concern information on session/unreleased/live recordings. If your only looking for info on what actually was released, you can't go wrong with this one!

5.0 out of 5 stars LOOP: the cult of noisy spacerock, 2 Nov 2002
This review is from: Fade Out (Audio CD)
LOOP is a much under-estimated band from the UK that released a few mindblowing noisy spacerock albums in late eighties and early nineties. FADE OUT is exemplary for their sound. It's a kind of early Jesus & Mary Chain in a very downtempo mood meets classic Hawkwind. With their deep moody sound their fate was to remain a cult phenomenon. Nevertheless: brilliant stuff and essential to understand the development of modern shoegazer rock. Not for the weak-hearted though!
