With the big My Bloody Valentine show now only a week away, I've been thinking lately about other great shoegazers from that same era -- and Slowdive rises quickly to the top of that list. Of course, Slowdive was much less abrasive than MVB, lulling you into a gentler headspace with layers of sound effects textured in velvet. One of my favorite tracks from the band was "Souvlaki Space Station" which I tracked down on some poorly designed, add-drenched Web site. But hey, the siren song amongst all that loud imagrey is Slowdive's greatest hit, tucked there in the middle of the page. -- Jennifer Maerz
