Nyarlathotep Why am I only hearing about this release in 2020? This is pantheon-worthy, easily rubbing shoulders with the likes of Loveless, Split, In Ribbons and Souvlaki as its peers. I've not heard the OG version, so I can't judge how this remastering improves the sound quality, but to my ear it sounds as good anything released this last year. Bottom line, this is a great "lost" classic, well-deserving of rediscovery in the 21st century. Favorite track: Simon's Day.

patient_ot This is a lost classic of 90s American shoegaze that really should be more widely known. In addition to the dreamy elements present in this type of music, there is a dark undercurrent reminiscent of 80s post-punk.

Jabod A reissue of an album from the classic era of shoegaze and a must for all fans of the genre. A US band in the style of the 4AD shoegazers (Lush, Pale Saints): Very dreamy and atmospheric, with the interplay of male-female vocals adding to the rich textures. Similar to A Shoreline Dream, for a more recent analogy.

Agonizing yet beautifully moving, textural, subconscious rock.

Long out of print classic emo shoegaze record remastered on CD and limited Vinyl.

Vinyl limited to 500 high quality vinyl and jacket with download card. 100 black, 100 white, 300 green and white "color in color" design.

Hooray. A "new" American band that's worth getting excited over. First of all, few U.S. bands seem to have any interest in ethereal sounds mixed with the power of fast tempos, of mixing sonics with impolite hard, steady rock, but this Providence group is instantly impressive. Imagine a way-better version of the few truly great songs by the young Drop Nineteens (only much deeper and more penetrating, and without the unfortunate MBV fixation), or even the Belltower via "In Hollow." There's an urgency to all the material that's particularly great, as if Difference Engine were perpetually carried away by the rush, and that's a great effect. The songs are well constructed and interesting, and consistently exciting. Most of all, there's a depth, a resonance to their billowing sound that catches one right from the opening chords following right through the whole of this LP. 16 years after Joy Division's landmark Unknown Pleasures, it's good to see bands still can find new niches to mine in the darker side of agonizing yet beautifully moving, textural, subconscious rock. This one's a real strong keeper. - "Jack Rabid"
