Outstanding. Literally outstanding. Okay, the influences are transparent - Mary Chain, Velvet Underground, My Bloody Valentine, but these are whirled into a staggeringly rich and original texture. The first time you hear this you will be bemused, perhaps disappointed, but with each listen it will make more and more sense, and you'll find yourself stirred. Nu-gaze doesn't get any better than this. My CD of the month, if not the year. Wonderful.
