About this album

Isn’t Anything is the debut full-length studio album by My Bloody Valentine, released in November 1988 on Creation Records. After the band’s original vocalist Dave Conway left in 1987, to be replaced by Bilinda Butcher, the band continued for a while in their previous noisy indie-pop style before Kevin Shields returned to their avant-garde roots, and began to explore the possibilities offered by the studio facilities available after signing to Creation Records in 1988. The first fruits of this experimentation was the single/EP “You Made Me Realise”, released in July 1988, with Isn’t Anything following later that year. Most of the album was recorded in a studio in Wales. While recording the album over a period of two weeks, the band got by on about two hours sleep a night. Bilinda Butcher described the effect of this on her vocals: “Often, when we do the vocals, it’s 7:30 in the morning: I’ve usually fallen asleep and have to be woken up to sing. Maybe that’s why it’s languorous. I’m usually trying to remember what I’ve been dreaming about when I’m singing.”

    Quality feature of this album is that it sounds nothing like Loveless but it's the same band. Bravo.

    I'll always prefer this to loveless because I can't get pass my own nostalgia of this being my first mbv record when I was just a kid who fucking hated high school.

    it does feel relatively light compared to loveless, but that's a great testament to loveless. this is a great album, though it took me a lot of listening to fully appreciate it.

    Didn't notice much of a difference with the remaster...and I have a fairly decent system, too. I don't think it needed a remaster, anyway.

    I actually love Kevin's voice more than Bilinda's; it's so dreamy and seductive. Plus, it's not like Bilinda's voice is that much more in tune anyway...
