Also, to those who think MBV just plays the same loop for 3+ minutes on a song - the more you listen to the band, the more you pick up on the fact that there are actually subtle riffs playing underneath the layers of noise that are constantly changing/shifting so no, it's not just a loop.

That's not repetitiveness done well... Manuel Gottsching is repetitiveness done well. This isn't a song, this is just the "work" of somebody who thought "maybe if I loop 2 seconds for the length of a normal song with no variation people will think it's avant garde."
There is clearly progression and variation in the song. Plus, it's a transition/bridge track.

To me this album starts off good, but the ending seems rushed and almost thrown together quickly. A good record, but not as good as Loveless... not even as good as Isn't Anything.

Also,

While I agree that MBV was influential on Smashing Pumpkin's sound, I can't see how they could have influenced Husker Du... Sugar maybe ("File Under Easy Listening")... Stone Roses were more or less contemporaries of MBV so its hard to see who influenced who... just my two cents.

Nope.

Amazing record, but bloody hell. The price is ridiculous.

Well, it just dropped to $22 on Amazon, so I guess I better pull the trigger.
