m b v is far from another loveless, or even being on that level, but it brings some very enjoyable tracks that are almost worth the over 20 year wait for new material. the vocals are dry where the instrumentals shine, and the vocals are also drowned out below the instrumentals, in the version i have it seems like the mixing was off. had to pay extra attention, but thats my only real complaint. m b v is an album that left me content after i finished it, but i was also yearning for more.

I'm a bit disappointed with this album. Seeing that the band completed this record for almost two decades is kind of both believable and unbelievable at the same time. This is because this album is mostly great, but at the same time, it feels muddled at times. At some point in the album, the song 'is this and yes' ruins the atmosphere and tone set up in the beginning of the LP, and the album does this throughout. And since there's only 9 tracks in this album,l I can't help but feel like this ... read more

An incredibly diverse and creative album. If Wonder 2 was shorter, or less repetitive, m b v might've been equal to Loveless. Easily one of the best albums of the decade.

The come back of the year with a taste of an old bottle of wine.
Grown up over the years just to fullfill the senses.

my bloody valentine actually succeeds where so many bands fail, transcending the classics to make a record just as great!

Although I expected this would not necessarily be the same kind of album as Loveless and tried to maintain my expectations with that in mind, this album just didn't hook me in the same way as their work 20 years previous. Something about Loveless seems seamless and groundbreaking; this is simply a solid reunion for a group who should have released far more music over their career. Mind you, this is still a solid album and has some of the brilliant styling that is incorporated from a shoegaze ... read more

Of course it’s not up to the standards of Loveless but I don’t think anyone expected it to be. They definitely try some different approaches to their sound here and they work sometimes and others they don’t. There’s definitely a greater emphasis on drums which I think gives the album a more unique sonic identity than I expected. I feel like in trying to be more experimental the band has lost their ear for pop melodies and song structure, one of Loveless’s biggest ... read more

Fantastic first third, mundane second, and beautifully abstract final third. But it ultimately solidifies MBV as a staple group in contemporary music

Favorite Tracks: She Found Now, In Another Way, Who Sees You, Wonder 2

Least Favorite: New You, Is This and Yes
NR
A new sound in a genre that's been begging for something to happen for years. About as solid a return as it could've been.

Canciones Favoritas: She Found Now, Only Tomorrow, Who Sees You

This one is almost nothing new, but i think it's as excellent as its two predecessors. One of the best reform albums of all time.

Gracias Señores del Shoegaze por regalarnos otro perfecto disco, donde caza tan bien ese Shoegaze noventero con un poco del sonidos frescos (Is this are podria encajar netamente en Bloom de Beach House). Esperemos no pase tanto tiempo para que nuestros oidos se puedan deleitar con un poco de mas guitarras y pedales.

Best Tracks: In Another Way, New You, Only Tomorrow, Is this a yes, She Found now

The masters of shoe-gaze return after 22 years. It's too bad they took so long to release a follow up to Loveless but regardless, this is an album that envelops you in sound and doesn't let you leave it until it's over.

Feels like sitting on the beach during overcast weather. Definitely a must-listen with few spots that lost my attention.

In their decades long existence, MBV have only managed to release three proper albums. The first was great. The second was essentially perfect. This, the third, takes what made the other two beloved classics, and puts every modern shoegaze band to shame. "She Found Now" is enough to provoke endless daydreams,and from then on, it's one big blue blur. Over time, the songs carve themselves into your subconscious. It's a difficult release to describe, but suffice it to say that ... read more

I,like may other lover of this band was a little skeptical about a follow up to "Loveless", but after hearing the new tunes, i was pleasantly surprised! Welcome back MBV!
