Digitally Remastered reissue of Slowdive's out-of-print third and final album. Slowdive's "Pygmalion" was the album that broke the band up and got them dumped from Creation just weeks after its release back in 1995; yet, that album has become one of the templates for the current strain of electronic melancholia. That album was ostensibly a solo album for Neil Halstead, who indulged in a majestic piece of electro-acoustic minimalism disguised as mope rock. "Pygamalion" displayed very little of the sublime tapestries of shoegazing guitars, and often blurred the fragile song structures into beautiful mirages and haunted echoes. For the business minded Creation, it was a commercial disaster and never got any serious consideration for licensing or even distribution for that matter. Fortunately the album has finally been reissued. Slowdive's combination of swirling, atmospheric guitars, lovely vocal harmonies, and melancholy ambience has always been the perfect music on those rainy days. Their first two albums, "Just For A Day" and "Souvlaki," are often heralded as perfect examples of that ambiguous style of music called "dreampop," bridging the gap between the Cocteau Twins' angelic soundscapes and My Bloody Valentine's exquisite wall of noise.
