It's definitely delivers that high MBV quality one comes to expect, but I prefer Loveless.

I agree with Frownland, Loveless is in a world all its own. Of course, no one expected Kevin Shields to top Loveless. The album 100% exceeded my expectations when I first heard it, though. What really impressed me was how it balances the old and new - of course, you want more Loveless so the album delivers that. Halfway through the album, though, it gets a bit more progressive, which I really appreciate. Shoegaze is one of the most stagnant genres out there so it's nice to hear someone try to push it along a bit.

As much as I love Isn't Anything, it's nowhere near Loveless or even m b v.
