    While a good enough record in its own right its probably most famous for being the predecessor to the class album "Loveless". Isn’t Anything has got ground breaking idea's that were developed and taken to a new level on its superior follow up. There are a couple of gems here but more often than not, whenever I think of putting this record on I just end up playing Loveless instead. The reissue clears up the sound but you'll probably only hear minimal differences unless you listen to the CD (not the MP3) through really good speakers. Collapse

    On of the best albums in music history. The last step to get away from everything they knew and get into the new mind of Kevin Shields, Loveless, their masterpiece.

    You wonder how many guitar bands in the interim have matched the standard set here. [Jun 2012, p.119]

    Its initial oddness now just sounds like a ramshackle tryout for what was to follow. [Jun 2012, p.91]

    There's an honesty of emotions, accentuated through the denseness and complexity of sounds.
