Reseña de álbum

Serving as an introduction to the U.S. market, Gala compiles the band's first three EPs and adds a couple outtakes. One thing that went overlooked about Lush was their ability to veer from violent and edgy noise breaks to pop effervescence. They were always capable of spewing out Saturday morning glow and Sunday evening doom from song to song. Their early reliance on sheets of distortion, buried vocals, and production issues didn't help this situation. As a result, their out-the-gate raw talent went rather unnoticed, evidenced on their earliest works. Scar demonstrated their under-appreciated diversity immediately. "Thoughtforms" is an example of their heavenly pop greatness, with the vocals sweeter and lighter than angel food cake. The haunting, atmospheric vocals and jittery tempos on the doomy "Second Sight" would end up laying the foundation for Chapterhouse's early material. Not a bad start. Guthrie and his beard hopped on board for the Mad Love EP, immediately chucking the guitars through the Guthrie-izer(tm). Most criticism of the EP pointed at the Cocteau Twin himself, who was accused of heavy-handedness. The guitars do sound a bit like Guthrie's own, but in a more assaultive, jabbing manner. A bad thing? No. All four tracks are goodies, from the cascading and shimmering walls of "De-Luxe" to the darker and heavier middle tracks. Production was an issue again on the Sweetness and Light EP. Tim Friese-Greene kind of polarizes the band's extreme ends, separating the noise and pop just a little too much. Despite a patched-on noise break during the title track, it's still one of the band's career highlights. "Sunbathing" is left in the sun too long, muffling the guitars and shrinking the sparse percussion. "Breeze" wafts by gracefully.

Exceptional, especially for a compilation.

My love for Lush, and this record inparticular, came from a deep desire to find and listen to something beautiful. Around the early 90's I became tired of listening to the abrasive and cathartic clatter of Black Flag, Psychic TV and Dead Kennedys. I knew I needed something different, but I hadn't a clue as to what I should have been listening for/to. Then one day I heard "Gala", with its etheriel melodies and luxurious distortion, and instantly had one of those "this is it!" moments. The first couple of bars of "Sweetness and Light", with its shimmering guitars and sun-drenched female vocals was all I need to become hooked. After hearing "Etheriel", I was on my way to Tower Records to purchase this record on tape (which I promplty wore-out.) "Gala" was a gateway "album" of sorts, and I would go on to purchase records by My Bloody Valentine, Ride and Chapterhouse. While "Gala" is actually a compilation Lush's first four Ep's, it will always remain the album that turned my world around and allowed a little beauty to shine a light in this sad bastard's soul.

Once again I-Tunes drops the ball

'Gala' gets 5 stars, definitely, but here is yet another case where a band's best album is conspicuously absent from I-Tunes (I don't include 'Gala' because it's technically a compilation). Where is 'Spooky?' Bad I-Tunes. no gold star for you.

Superb... Simply superb

A lot of great bands came out in the late 80's-mid 90's that were, alas, overlooked and ignored by the fickle public. LUSH was one of these bands. By far one of the most innovative, original, and unusual offerings from this era, their music in many ways defies genres. Haunting, melodious, etheric, filled with mystery and verve yet always with a hint of melancholic longing... With the lone exception of the grating "Baby Talk" this is some of the most beautiful music you will ever hear. Buy it. You will never regret it.

Meshing dreamy, effects-drenched guitars with airy, catchy melodies, Lush were one of the most prominent shoegaze/dream pop bands of the early '90s. Led by guitarists Miki Berenyi and Emma Anderson, the British band gained a cult following within the British and American undergrounds with its first EPs, yet the group never quite attained the critical respect given to its peers My Bloody Valentine and Ride. Even so, Lush lasted longer than any other of their contemporaries (with the exception of the...
