Better Can't Make Your Life Better
Che/Primary Recordings

Reviewed by Keith McLachlan.


Whew!!! This is one exhilirating record. First off, this is not the Lilys you have either come to know as sublime shoegazers or droll My Bloody Valentine impersonators. No, apparently the shrine to the missing in action Kevin Shields has been dismantled, and in its place you might find all of your favorite records of the 60s. This is the sort of album you swear you've heard before but you can't quite place it. You hear that George Harrison guitar, the Ray Davies vocals, the Brian Wilson like arrangements and you realize man this guy is onto something. There isn't a slack track on this record, from start to finish it is a winner. The song "The Tennis System" has all of these voices coming from nowhere over a distant percussion and is luminescent, "Who is Moving" turns in two or three different directions, and the closer "Returns Every Morning" leaves you longing for more. A serious contender for album of the year
