Slowdive - everything is alive
everything is alive, Slowdive's 5th record, is exactly what the title suggests: an exploration into the shimmering nature of life and the universal touch points within it.
While there are parts of this record that could sit neatly next to the atmospheric quality of 1995's Pygmalion; everything is alive also manages to break down the boundaries of what’s come before it. Spanning psychedelic soundscapes, pulsating 80's electronic elements and John Cale inspired journeys, the album lands immediately as something made for the future; which figures, as their fanbase has grown younger & younger as time has gone on.
Shoegaze “is often thought of as divisive, and often warrants introspection, here Slowdive show their craft as the masters of it by pushing it outwards, beyond the singular; the end result being a record which feels as emotional and cathartic as it is hopeful. Maybe Slowdive don't just want to be a great shoegaze band, they want to be a great band, period. This album gives ample proof that they have done it. Equally experimental and accessible, brimming over with aquatic atmosphere and pointed emotional feeling, and full of familiar joys and new surprises, everything is alive is the work of a group who are done reforming and have set their sights on brilliant evolution instead.” ~Tim Sendra, allmusic.com
