This review is from: Yerself Is Steam (Audio CD)
I remember this album coming out, and it literally blowing me and my mates away. The album contains the masterpiece "frittering", which starts with steel string acoustic guitar, maving into the wall of sound that you'd expect from the likes of Sonic Youth and My Bloody Valentine, then trickling back down to the underlying melody. If only for this and "Chasing a Bee", this album is an amazing piece of work. However, it also contains the grunge guitar classic "Syringe Mouth", and numerous other classics.
In my mind, this is Mercury Rev at their greatest, remeniscent of "Loveless" by My Bloody Valentine. I simply cannot do this album justice in words, just buy it.
