another great shoegaze album comes from the portland/san francisco/los angeles 4-piece "tears run rings". when i say great i am lying, because this album isn't just great.... it's simply amazing. why? because it's one of the few albums that are consequent and follow a straight path. it's shoegaze... nothing more, nothing less.... it's shoegaze in perfection. it doesn't happen very often, that an album takes me to far distant places, just by it's music and the atmosphere. tears run rings understand how to create a warm but lost atmosphere.... bittersweet perfection. an absolute must have for anyone who has at least a bit for shoegaze or dream pop. wonderful wonderful.... simply wonderful.
