I appreciate this much better than "Dance on the Blacktop," and I really liked that record. Nothing have perfected their 90s infused sound with classic 21st century songwriting. So many great songs here that make "The Great Dismal" their strongest release to date. Awesome. Weird cover though... bcb723
"...really not sure how this album originally passed me by... While recalling the hazy days of Shoegazy Brit Pop, any attempt to dismiss this album as merely retro-dream pop or shoegaze is doomed to fail. Here is an album that exemplifies everything that pop(ular) music should be - 10 earworming tunes that will be reverberating around the space between your ears long after the album has finished..."
I am so excited to have discovered this band. Their songs are the epitome of shoegaze to me. The vocals are subtle and mesmerizing, and the music is melodic but hazy. I can't wait to hear more from this group. SnorriSputnik
