My Bloody Valentine – MBV

On the band’s first effort in over 20 years, My Bloody Valentine doesn’t overreach their seminal efforts on Loveless, but the band still proves they have a hefty amount of relevance and creativity to spare when it comes to shoegaze. WATCH THE REVIEW

    I really like this. After listening to it on youtube several times I think I’ll buy it. However, as you say, I am a bit surprised at how closely this picks up where they left off 20 years before, as if no time has passed. That is a good thing…I guess. I’m reminded of the same thing with Bauhaus briefly reuniting a few years ago, sounding almost as if no time had passed. More recently, Adam Ant and now Throwing Muses are back sounding remarkably the same as ever. Has there ever been a band that returned from a very extended absence with a wholly different sound – and actually succeeded with it?
