8 Songs, 45 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Some bands take a few years to regroup for their next move; dream-pop pioneers Slowdive took 22, a return all the more bittersweet given how many bands their sound has influenced since. Combining the atmospherics of ambient music with rock ’n’ roll’s low center of gravity, Slowdive sounds as vital as anything the band recorded in the early ‘90s, whether it’s the foggy, countryish inflections of “No Longer Making Time” or the propulsive “Star Roving.”

Welcome back!

Listening to this album is like finding a time capsule from the 90s in the best possible way. It's all there, the lush layers of guitars, the buried vocals, the soaring melancholy. Just lovely.

Kings of Shoegaze!

Wow! Such a strong record. I love that after 22 years they still showed restraint and only included 8 amazing tracks. All great no filler. Welcome back Slowdive and please don't ever go away again. This world needs this music.

Amazing singles, high hopes

Great to hear that Slowdive is making music again and that they haven't lost their signature sound. Sugar for the Pill sounds like it could have been recorded right after Souvlaki.
