But there’s something so of-its-own about Halcyon Digest, something to take bored shoegazers aback. Even those who were expecting Deerhunter to write something wildly different to this (as I did) will be overwhelmed, and for the personality of it alone; eleven songs with lives of their own, joyous or raucous, ditzy or adventurous.

Unfortunately for Slowdive, their first album, Just for a Day, was released the same year as My Bloody Valentine’s landmark, instantly classic Loveless. However, 1993 saw the band releasing what many consider their best album, Souvlaki, an album that is equal parts shoegaze, ambient, and pop that easily differentiates itself from the pack of shy dogs.

Why? – Alopecia

Why? – Alopecia

why? - alopecia

pitchfork.com:

“Unclassifiable” is usually lazy shorthand for albums featuring both guitars and keyboards. Alopecia is a liquid in the sieve of genre: put it on headphones and it begs to bump; recite lyrics aloud and people will look at you with loathing usually reserved for religious leaflet canvassers and slam poets; try and decode the words in your head and you’ll only hear the melodies behind them. As for his lyrics, it’s wrong to call them stream-of-consciousness, since that implies Wolf is a poor self-editor; nothing about Alopecia is lazy. It’s more like 5 a.m. journal entries cut up and turned to collage. Clearly, every line won’t be pure gold, but they all add up to something.

Whether it’s the Minus The Bear guitars of “Gibbon” or the horn-laden, jazz-influenced “Elk,” each new track brings, erm, something new to the table. Animals is a record about stretching. TTNG pull themselves into some odd shapes, but they always bounce back to a familiar, taut form.
