    Those Loveless comparisons are way off the mark. I felt duped by such positive reviews when I finally heard the record. I think the MBV comparisons were thrown out there a little too hastily.

  1. Citrus is as good a shoegaze record you will ever hear, regardless of release date.
  2. Nearly everything about Citrus is so accomplished, refined, and downright transcendent that it could very well stand alongside Loveless as a modernized shoegaze staple.
  3. Where Asobi Seksu's first album seemed rushed, a little too experimental, and at times too loud, Citrus brings the right amount of noise, swirling affects, and sound balance.
