A very atmospheric album,
By A Customer
This review is from: Catch The Breeze (Audio CD)
The innovative noiseniks Slowdive were one of the many great shoegazing bands of the late 80s. They are clearly influenced by My Bloody Valentine to the point of replication and although this does take away from the bands originality its music is still superb. The atmospheric guitars float above you while the subtle drumming underneath keeps you involved. The music has to be described as atmospheric even more so the MBV, it takles there distorted riffs but makes it lighter and fluffier, leaving you with a haze of sound that washes over you leaving you feeling totally fullfilled by the album. The cover of Pink Floyds Golden Hair is respectable and the album highlights include the mezmerizingly beautiful Souvlaki Space Station and the title track Catch The Breeze which creates more colour than than even the best Joy Division tracks. A definate purchase for any noisepop fan.
