This epoch-making record of the late '80s effortlessly combines dense swathes of guitar noise and dance music.

This turned out to be their last record, guitarist and studio maestro Kevin Shields having set their standards so high it was impossible to surpass them.

Shields is now playing with Primal Scream. Includes the classics Loomer, Soon and To Here Knows When.

Review by

This is a good news, bad news sort of review. First, the interviews done are thorough; and I enjoy how much the author cuts down the mythology that has been built up around the making of this epic record. But, what's hard to overcome is how much outside of the interviews is written towards the music geek. It's hard to enjoy a metaphor that's really more of an inside joke, and that's what happens when a writer keeps name checking the most obscure references possible.
