Highly anticipated and long awaited 2013 album from the British Alt-Rock icons led by Kevin Shields. MBV is the follow-up to their genre-defining 1991 album Loveless. Since reuniting in 2007, Shields and Co. have been promising a new album but in typical MBV fashion, it took years for this release to finally emerge, originally via the band's label and website, to unanimous praise.
"9.1 out of 10."--Pitchfork.

This may be the most unexpected album of last year. English shoegaze ( a term that hardly does them justice) titans made "Loveless," a pinnacle of 90s guitar rock and an album that seemingly was too much to follow up. Leader Kevin Shields was quiet for a while and then slowly started to collaborate with other musicians (J Mascis, Bobby Gillespie) before MBV reunited for shows. And, now, over two decades later, they have followed up "Loveless" with an album that has no right to be as good as it is. When I heard the opening song on "Loveless," I thought "This is what God would sound like if he played guitar." And they still sound impossibly grand and transcendent, while also offering up some songs are closer than they've ever gotten to pop. If you're going to stage a comeback, this is how to do it.
