I have taken a lot of time to take this album in. It has held me speechless with it's unique approaches to loud, abrasive rock music, it is always volatile and noisy, yet serene and beautiful at the same time.
You see, the Boo Radleys created a timeless sounding album with "Everything's Allright Forever." They were one of the first bands to take psychedelic british rock music and couple it with unique pop music flourishes. Opener "Spaniard" erupts into stately spanish-style horn while MBV guitars roar in the background. Reviewers have described the production of this album as "sonic shading" and that is nothing but the truth. Each song has layers of guitarwork with infinite and fresh sounding effects.
Songwriter Martin Carr was able to incorporate so many cool sounds into the traditional shoegaze approach, it is amazing.
"I Feel Nothing" uses acoustic jazz chords before erupting into feedback. "Paradise" utilizes an amazing midsection breakdown...
for all the shoegazers of the world, ones who love slowdive, my bloody valentine and more, if you haven't heard everything is alright forever and are detoured because of the obvious implications of "rip off", you are dead wrong. yes, the boo's do tend to take on the shoegazing in full effect...but, esp on this ablum, their style is brilliant and all their own. i prefer this ablum even over "loveless" for the mere fact that these songs are crafted perfectly, in dreamy bliss fashion...a sheer masterpiece...the trumpets in the first song alone tell you this loudly..this ablum will expand your mind along with your appreciation for the greatest style of music ever created. and if you can try and find the album "learning to walk" too! it's rare but it's noise lover's dream bye buy by bi
album I owned years ago, re-purchased it so cheap, love it, there are some beautiful tunes on here. I didn't enjoy where there sound went, I understand most shoegaze bands wanted to evolve their sound, but many (ride, lush) lost that magic when they did so.
