Such a sweet comedown,
This review is from: Catch The Breeze (Audio CD)
I was a pale callow student when in that brief window between baggy and grunge it was all the rage to crank up the volume and stand on stage staring at a vast array of guitar effects - I know because I was in a band that tried to do this too!
I loved Slowdive then, saw them live a few times and always had a soft spot for Rachel Goswell - sadly unlike another reviewer I never had a poster of her on my walls - though I did get to interview them for a student radio show and they were nice folks.
I have all the stuff on this album on vynl and I was delighted to finally have some decent digital recordings that could go on my ipod. Their music far more than ride or MBV moved me - and still does, there is something wonderfully blisful about the way the music builds on tracks like Morningrise and in the nicest possible way lifts your head off when it all comes in on a track like catch the breeze.
I was always disappointed that such beautiful music never generated more press inches or critical respect - but at least the CDs are all available now and the excellent Mojave 3 are around too.
This is just fantastic so buy it...
