    Giving us a taste of what this genre [shoegaze]could encompass with a modernized touch.
  2. 70
    A hell of an album that reveals further treasures buried in the mix with each listen.

    Sugar does little to contradict the argument that the Sunshine Factory are nothing more than a My Bloody Valentine tribute act, but it's an act they undeniably do very well.
