Whirlpool (Expanded Edition)
Label: Sony Music UK
One of the most underrated albums of the early '90s "shoegazer" era, Whirlpool blends Cocteau Twin Robin Guthrie's glassy production with My Bloody Valentine-esque guitars and post-Madchester beats. "Pearl" boasts a John Bonham drum loop and Rachel Goswell's gossamer backing vocals. Here's looking at shoe, kid!
