Pretty damn influential. They're really underrated. Honey's Dead is really good, Darklands is fantastic, Barbed Wire Kisses is on Psychocandy's level, Munki is pretty good, and Automatic is also good. They got too much shit for changing their sound.
>>61822554 Dunno how influential. Their sound especially on Psychocandy, their only good album btw, is so singular that when bands are influenced by them it's painfully obvious and embarrassing,(BRMC anyone?), that said they are the goat for this one album. The look, the songs, the attitude...total cohesion. Perfect. The best. No one could keep that shit up.
If I recall correctly Kevin Shields wanted to be like them so that counts for something. That, and the whole providing the base foundational pieces for shoegaze, if not the aesthetic fusion in the way that genre would. Psychocandy just took pop and layered it with feedback, while sboegaze attemps to make the two inseperable.
>>61825641 >Psychocandy just took pop and layered it with feedback, while sboegaze attemps to make the two inseperable. true. And imo neither the pop tunes behind the noise nor the noise itself are that impressive or unique in each track for me to care about it
I think it comes together on the most abrasive tracks like Never Understand or In A Hole, but by and large I kinda feel like the album blends together into a homogenous blob. I don't dislike it but I appreciate the album more than I sincerely enjoy it.
