Формируйте собственную коллекцию записей Slowdive.

Pygmalion is the third studio album by English shoegazing band Slowdive, released on 6 February 1995 by record label Creation. It was the final album before Slowdive disbanded in 1995. A departure from their previous two albums, Pygmalion incorporated a more experimental sound tilted towards ambient electronic music, with sparse, atmospheric arrangements. All compositions were by Neil Halstead. Lyrics on tracks "Miranda" and "Visions of LA" were by Rachel Goswell.

Pygmalion ‎(LP, Album + LP, Album, Cle + RE, Unofficial). This album seems almost an obvious descendent of Bark Psychosis' "Hex" and Talk Talk's "Laughing Stock" (more so than "Spirit of Eden") and Halstead's solo stuff is watered down Nick Drake. At least he's got excellent taste, and it's beautiful music, but I don't find much originality. Maybe that was never the point.

Pygmalion is the most abstract of Slowdive's albums; after moving from the sugary pop of Just for a Day to the more mature and more experimental Souvlaki, the band began to incorporate even more elements of ambient electronica - drum loops, samples, and songs even less tangible than on previous releases.

Pygmalion is Slowdive's third album, released on February 6th, 1995. Pygmalion is widely recognized as a severe departure from the band's previous work. The album has a much more bleak and damaged approach than Just For a Day or Souvlaki. On this album Slowdive uses a wide array of different electronic effects and a heavier focus on clean guitar tones. The cover illustration features imagery from Rainer Wehinger's graphic notation for György Ligeti's work Artikulation (1958).

Album · 1995 · 9 Songs. An austere, 10-minute epic of ghostly folk-pop that opens Slowdive’s third album, Rutti marks a bold departure from the gauzy, reverb-drenched sounds that had been the band’s forte. In its place comes a new awareness of space, silence, and texture-a quality best demonstrated here by the fractured soundscape of Trellisaze. Even more compelling is Blue Skied an’ Clear, in which a subtly insistent beat anchors the gentle vocals of Neil Halstead and Rachel Goswell as the surrounding sounds disintegrate to eerily gorgeous effect.

While Ride and Chapterhouse were wont to immerse their music in an ethereal wall of sound, Slowdive favoured a polite narcotic haze, soothing rather than battering the brain into passive submission.
