12 Songs, 37 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

With this full-length debut, My Bloody Valentine introduced something that few bands have ever created: a whole new noise. Isn’t Anything’s unstable combination of gentle and ferocious elements is the key to this innovation. Even on songs as assaultive as “Feed Me with Your Kiss” or the Sonic Youth-worthy “Sueisfine,” the band’s knack for psych-pop melodies, along with Bilinda Butcher and Kevin Shields’ blissed-out vocals, is somehow strong enough to weather Shields’ constantly surging maelstrom of reverb, effects, and feedback.
