This album has moments of extreme ugliness as well as extreme beauty.

My only fault with this album is that Nightside Of Eden doesn't go for three times as long as it does. Man I love that song.

I've never met anyone who didn't fall in love with Alcest. The only reports I've heard of anti-Alcest have been from people who literally get way to emotional listening to them, spiraling down a well of tears and sorrow.

cocteau twins are a bit different from any of their contemporaries because nobody's voice could possibly be as beautiful as liz fraser's. if that's the best part of cocteau twins for you, i'd recommend

"damon and naomi with ghost" by Damon & Naomi. they were the rhythm section of a great slowcore band called Galaxie 500, and after that band broke up they gradually evolved into a dreampop powerhouse. the female vocals are great.

"split" by Lush. another dreampop band with beautiful female vocals. the closing track is probably one of the best songs ever recorded.





shoegaze is basically dreampop with buried vocals (which are still very melodious and soothing) and waves upon waves of guitar effects that swathe the songs. if cocteau twins are the quintessential dreampop band, my bloody valentine are the key purveyors of shoegaze.

"loveless" by My Bloody Valentine. i'm not really gonna write much about this because you can probably find hundreds of articles online stating that this is the best album ever made, the best album of the 90s, the best indie album, etc etc.

"souvlaki" by Slowdive. the other key shoegaze release. amazing female vocals. brian eno arranged some of the songs on the album.

"playing with fire" by Spacemen 3. this is the premier spacerock band. the two frontmen formed spiritualized and spectrum, respectively, after the band split. each band is good but completely inferior to this, their original project. the closer is another of the best songs ever conceived.

"psychocandy" by The Jesus and Mary Chain. the main noisepop band. i'll steal a common description that critics use: beach boys + velvet underground + tons and tons of distortion and echo.


flow chart:

spacemen 3, cocteau twins, and jesus & mary form in the 80s and are roughly contemporaneous. my bloody valentine and slowdive are inspired by these three. lush and damon & naomi are influenced by all of the above.





here's another awesome band:




codeine play music in the same vein as the bands listed above, but their music is incredibly forlorn and hopeless. i consider it to be one of the most emotionally affecting albums ever made and i also think that metalheads will enjoy it because it has a sludgy, bass heavy aspect to it.

sweet. thanks for the write up man. On superficial exploring, mostly digging slowdive & lush. the noisier stuff isn't really my thing. I like it pretty. Flowery guitars, late 80 effects, mild etherial synths. stuff like that. pretty girly vocals a plus, but not the reason I'm into it. Mostly pretty guitar stuff.
