Editorial Reviews

Highly anticipated and long awaited 2013 album from the British Alt-Rock icons led by the esteemed Kevin Shields. MBV is the follow-up to their genre-defining 1991 album Loveless. Since reuniting in 2007, Shields and Co. have been promising a new album but in typical MBV fashion, it took years for this release to finally emerge, originally via the band's label and website, to unanimous praise.

I wouldn't say its great but its not bad either.

That being said I would urge anyone who likes the group or likes shoegazing music or just wants to check out this band to grab loveless first and then grab this.

The lush, resonant walls of sound are in full effect and there are some different approaches as well.

I am a relative late-comer to MBV; I've only known about them (and been a huge fan) since I heard "Sometimes" in the sondtrack of the movie "Lost in Translation" around 2004. However, since they hadn't produced any new albums since 1991 (Loveless), I had real doubts there would ever be anything new. I mean "Loveless" was such an out-of-the-box peerless master-work of a record, I thought that maybe we would all have to be content that this was the pinnacle of what we could expect from MBV. Nearly the whole time I've been aware of them there have been rumors of something new coming, but the years passed and...nothing. Until now! I was excited when I saw that this new album, "mbv," was available, and did not hesitate to pay the high import price for it. After listening a few times, I am very happy to find that "mbv" is really still undeniably MBV! I mean the moment I heard the first fuzzy chord of "She Found Now," I said yes, they're back...finally. This is not to say they haven't changed at all; that would not be really possible, or desirable either, I think. With Loveless, MBV found their stride, and with "mbv," they have refined their sound even more, and it's absolutely wonderful, in my opinion. So much so, the ablum seems to end too quickly at just over 46 minutes. The good thing, though, is that when it ends, I can't wait to hear it again...

Thanks to Kevin Shields, Belinda Butcher, Colm O'Closoig, and Deb Googe for a great follow up to "Loveless."

I'm not a huge MBV fan--I own only Loveless--but I found this album very enjoyable, like a 20-year-old lost album. No new territory, but the band treads water as delightfully as one can and it sounds timeless, rather than dated.

But that's not what I want to write about. Is there some sort of embargo on speaking about the album's price? I haven't seen anyone mention it anywhere on the Internet, yet this CD is twice the price of other CDs. What gives?

It's not just Amazon--I ordered directly from MBV and paid the above price.

Nine tracks, several of which Mr. Shields & Co. have rounded into shape the past few years during live performances.

An amazing recording: it's fresh and new, and yet it often sounds like it could've been recorded 20 years ago. Shields and Butcher have aged well, it seems. The rhythm section is popping as usual. The abrasive quality that made "Loveless" such a startling record is present here on several tracks (particularly the last third of the album) but w/ a "smoother" edge.

The lead-off track and the instantly catchy "New You" are immediate stand-outs for me. After a few dozen listens, I have declared this the best album I'll hear in 2013. I doubt I'll make a liar out of myself.

Worth it at any price. Is every song great? No, but every song is interesting. Compare it to the baby shoegaze albums still coming out today: does anyone else's wall of sound come close to the ornate weirdness of Kevin's? Do anyone else's vocals come close to Bilinda's dreamy comforts? This album oozes into the spaces between your ears, like nothing else, not even Loveless itself. I'm grateful for it. I'd pay twice as much.

So many things have been said about My Bloody Valentine over the last 20 or so years. MBV defined the shoegaze category with Loveless. Loveless ends up on top 10 lists (of all time), desert island lists, and is generally one of those albums people either love, hate, or have never heard. While this is not a review about Loveless, it sets the tone of expectations for a new album from the original members of this iconic band. Do people expect another Loveless release, or maybe an evolutionary or revolutionary extension of the style? This listener expected both, but was disappointed in the lack of revolution.

Yes, there certainly is plenty of wall of sound, distorted vocals, and catchy hard to discern vocals. These are appreciated with multiple listens. So yes, this is Loveless 2. It is hard to stand out in a now crowded category of shoegaze. Lots of bands have reproduced the original sound -- LSD and the Search for God and the Fleeting Joys stand out on the west coast side of this equation (and there are so MANY more!). To really distinguish the sound requires a flourish of difference!

Most fans probably do not care, after all, when the MBV website allowed the purchase of the new album, it was almost immediately shut down by the demand for the product. There is obvious demand for more from MBV, and here's to hoping this the most current album is not the last.

For other critics, a personal friend and all time fan of Loveless and the surrounding releases, called Kevin Shields a "hack" for playing the same music from 20 years ago. A hack! Wow, that is a word I would never use to describe MBV and Kevin Shields..

Yes, we all have to face it, it's here, finally, the Loveless follow up. Should music take so long to gestate in the mind/effect pedals of its creator/master? No, of course not. How many countless sketches, 1/2 finished songs, thoughts, ideas remain on Kevin's cutting room floor, or as little, flitting thoughts in the back of Kevin's mind? Who knows... but it's here, finally. Of course, only time will tell how we all feel about this record some 20 years on from now.

How to attack listening to it, let alone a music review. It's very hard, almost academic. Should I compare it to the past? No. But, will I? Of course. At first listen, it really didn't stick for me. I found the ending abstract and uninteresting. But then I put on the recent 2xCD EPs collection, songs I've lived and loved for the past 20-25 years now. I began to appreciate the recording techniques, open tunings, and especially, the integration of the vocals, in a whole new way. So, I then went back to this record again, expecting to like it even less, after hearing "To Here Knows When" and "Slow" for the first time in a bit. But, much to my pleasant surprise, that wasn't the case. I started to appreciate this for what it is, the Loveless follow up. Who cares the years that have passed. It doesn't really matter. At least, it shouldn't. Ideally, we'd've heard these songs in 1995. But, such are things we don't control.

Gone are the guitars that I loved, in terms of their power. It's a headphones record now, for sure. One that just popped up around Valentine's Day, and on Super Bowl(R) Sunday (aka, "The Big Game"). It was threatened to come out, oh so long ago, even by Kevin himself. I am slowly warming to it. It's a process, to be certain. And a slower one than I'd expected. It's such a long time since it was the '90s.
