At last, a decent recent shoegaze album!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Alpinisms: Limited Edition (Audio CD)
I've fallen for a lot of misleading music press reviews while looking for a decent shoegaze album in recent years. After Maps' (We Can Create) disappointing effort, this is much more like it. The first third of the album has just the right blend of hairs-on-end goosepimpling textured guitar (albeit subtly churning in the background) and attractive vocals to push my buttons. Particularly reminiscent of MBV and Cherry-era Curve in my opinion. Subsequently it changes character, but strong tunes keep the interest up where other supposed 'shoegaze' albums have fallen. Recommended.
