For those of you whose only dealing with My Bloody Valentine was their 1991 shoegaze/dream pop magnum opus Loveless, the groups debut LP, Isn't Anything, will be an entirely different beast. Here, we see the band experimenting with their sound and seeing what works. You'll hear glimpses of what they would eventually become, but you'll also hear the band as you've never heard them before. It's not too noisy, but the are still veils of texture around most of the songs that are pretty interesting to hear, and with the band's inherent catchy pop sensibilities, you essentially get a prototype of Loveless, only with so much more substance and value than that description would have you believe. Yes, there is a lot of experimentation, but it's not like the band is just throwing things against a wall to see what sticks. It's a varied and fun release that is definitely worth your time if you enjoy experimental rock.
