  1. This is the kind of debut that lurches into the grungy excess befitting trashcan fires, anachronistic outsider idolization, and massive Feeder collections assembled inside Southern Californian suburbs.
  2. The finest line here is the one between effortless thrash-pop and Slowdive's arse, and My Vitriol just tripped over it.

    16 tracks of pure and glorious indie guitar rock. I bought this when it first came out and I still enjoy it whenever I give it a spin. The16 tracks of pure and glorious indie guitar rock. I bought this when it first came out and I still enjoy it whenever I give it a spin. The sound has stood the test of time for me. This is a top guitar album full of great hooks and licks with a really huge energetic sound. More than half the record is instrumental with┬ávery few standard verse chorus verse tracks. The vocals are the least prominent aspect of the band but work well. "Always Your Way" and "Windows and Walls" are the stand out tracks for me. There's a clear shoe gaze influence at times in the vein of My Bloody Valentine but My Vitriol are more straight rock than experimental. The most disappointing thing about the band is that there never was a follow up to this. Full Review »

    One of the finest albums ever. My Vitriol have their own sound which only one word can describe... amazing.
