My Bloody Valentine - Isn't Anything (Remastered)
Like all things My Bloody Valentine related, this digital remaster of the groups sophomore LP, along with a remastered Loveless, were set to be released months ago only to be delayed indefinitely when Kevin Shields pulled his usual "LOL JK" routine. Forget about that followup to Loveless, how about that fucking box set I was promised 5 years ago? I digress...
I'm actually glad the band decided to finally give the thumbs up for this, because lord knows Isn't Anything could benefit from it. I love MBV, and I'll defend the perfect production on Loveless all day, but at this point Kevin Shields hadn't become obsessive-compulsive enough to really make this a great sounding record. I wasn't quite sure what to make of it at first, but after repeat listens I'm completely sold. Great band, great record. If it is ever released (I know, there's a set release date but I'll believe it when I'm holding a copy in my hands) make sure you pick it up.
