This album is amazing, I wish I'd had it in 1992 when I used to play music much louder. I loved Taste when it came out, I once crashed a car because I was playing that album at a 100 decibels at 4 in the morning in the mist on a windy coastal road, I bought #untitled second after hearing two tracks from it on Altered Perception (a best of) and was amazed. Taste was incredible because it brought harmony from extreme discord. Untitled second is a different thing altoghether I think it is one of the best psychedelic records ever made, it contains a series of incredible rocking brilliantly crafted tunes, It is way better than anything anyone else was doing at the time (in my opinion), admitedly a couple of tracks sound similar but I think thats because it never made it to a finished tracklisting (I'm guessing) but I can't critisise anything on it, i never get tired of it, I have been playing this album continuously since I bought it, making up for missing the oppourtunity whenever it was that it was initialy released or not. I'm so glad I found this album

I'm happy to see that The Telescopes'only album for Creation is released again. I bought this back in 1994 when it first came out, and it has been an album I always have returned to.
The feeling of the album is hazy and psychedelic and the sound has a warmth to it, that isn't their on other recordings by this band. Favourites include the smattering psychedelic tremelofest of Flying, the sitar-pop of High on Fire, the claustrophobic And, plus the jazzy You Set My Soul.
Pure excellence!
The bonus tracks (alternate versions of Flying and And) doesn't add much to the album, so perhaps it would have been nicer to include the singles that they recorded for Creation, but this is only minor criticism.
This is their finest hour to date, and I hope that the recent interest for The Telescopes have inspired them to make an excellent new album as well.

As an absolute lover of all things Creation records and all things Shoegaze i was sure id fall head over heals for the cult darlings the Telescopes just as i had for the hyped Ride and the tragically overlooked Slowdive. I was wrong, the album itself is testamant to why it was forgotten and even "lost" for ten years, to put it bluntly its naff!
Granted, landmark single "Flying" is awesome, tremelo led trippy brilliance condensed into a 3 minute pop gem and if you can find the album cheap enough then maybe buy it for this 5 star song alone. Aside from this, and its demo version "tornado" the closest thing we get to another "highlight" is sitar laden "High on fire" which just sounds like an unused middle eight from "Flying".
Comparisons to Spacemen 3 and the Jesus and Mary Chain can only puzzle and misguide the listener, what we actually have hear is a husky and smoky 3am guitar-led light jazz album with sporadic use of feedback and tremelo, the record would make a nice soundtrack to a quiet coffee house, not so much laid back as completley inoffensive and boring!
This is quite a woeful album, one fantastic single and twelve laboured non-starters make for a bad investment in this reviewers opinion, once youve exhausted the genious of Slowdive, the mockney zest of Ride and the gargantuan awe of My Bloody Valentine then simply draw a line under Creation records' Shoegaze output and move onto something else.

5.0 out of 5 stars Probably the most underrated album from shoegaze's heyday 15 Oct. 2012
By Jack Tripper - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Telescopes were always a band that were hard to pin down. Their first full-length, 1989's 'Taste,' along with their early EPs from the late 80's, showed them to be an aggressive, almost angry noise-rock band whose walls of guitars helped bridge the gap from the proto-shoegaze of 'Psychocandy,' 'The Perfect Prescription,' and 'Isn't Anything' in the 80's to the actual shoegaze of 'Nowhere,' 'Loveless,' and 'Souvlaki' in the 90's, while their 21st century work showed them developing a more experimental, artsy, and subdued post-rock sound. But in between, they made some of the most transcendent, dreamy music of the era. 'Untitled Second' was their only full-length during this early 90's period, and it showed them already moving more toward the avant-garde, jazzy sound of their later work. It's an eclectic mixture of ethereal soundscapes and folky-yet-atmospheric dream-pop, while still retaining some of their noisier proto-shoegaze roots.

Making use of a multitude of instruments, including acoustic and electric guitars together, jazzy piano and percussion, organ, bongos, and what sounds at times like an upright bass, results in a sound that's sort of a combination of shoegaze, post-rock, and the old-school psych of The Pretty Things and Barrett-era Floyd. It's quite impressive, especially if you're anything like me. I was (and still am) a huge fan of late 80's/early 90's British psych music, yet had neglected to ever listen to this band until recently, as The Telescopes were a little under my radar as a 15-year old U.S. midwesterner. I have a feeling, however, that if I had heard 'Untitled Second' back in the day, they would have become one of my all-time favorite bands 17 years ago as opposed to just last year.

Although it's not quite a flawless album, songs like "Splashdown," "High on Fire," "And," and "To the Shore," without question, can stand proudly next to the best of the shoegaze era and, along with their many EPs released in the early '90's*--especially '91's 'Celeste' and 'Flying,' both stellar--is evidence of a band that was every bit as talented and original as Ride, Slowdive, or any other band in the genre outside of My Bloody Valentine. While this album may not technically be considered "shoegaze" to some, it will certainly take the listener on a unique, tripped-out, and euphoric headphone journey that is pretty much unlike anything else in music, past or present. 90's bands like The Verve and Brian Jonestown Massacre were, I imagine, heavily influenced by this album--directly or indirectly--and I suspect that 'Untitled Second,' and The Telescopes in general, will one day get the credit (and find the audience) it deserves. In the meantime, I can pretty much guarantee that, if they ever come out of my regular rotation, it'll most likely be because I'm no longer alive.

* If you don't feel like shelling out massive cash for the original EP's, both 2003's 'As Approved by the Committee' and 2004's 'Altered Perceptions' do a great job of collecting all the essential tracks from their late 80's and early 90's shoegaze period.

4.0 out of 5 stars Under The Radar 12 May 2009
By The Recordchanger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Telescopes are a band I missed completely during their first go round as part of the shoegaze pop scene in late 1980's England. It wasn't until the Bomp label in the U.S. issued a compilation album 'As Approved By The Committee', that they caught my attention. Coming so long after that movement had seen its heyday, I could never have imagined being so blown away by something that had slipped beneath my radar years earlier. So when I heard Bomp was reissuing the group's 'Untitled Second' with bonus tracks, I was very excited to hear more. And this record, like the previous one, does not disappoint. Maybe it's a weird kind of nostalgia that makes me appreciate this music now, or maybe there's simply a timeless quality to this kind of British Rock that will always be appealing. Whatever it is, it's music you can put on, and lose yourself in. And that's the best kind.
