Still in a Dream takes a wide trawl approach to its genre, which has upsides and downsides. As with Rhino’s goth box A Life Less Lived, shoegaze is generously interpreted to include antecedents and formative influences, which bulks up the quality. Listening today, though, the '60s-ness of shoegaze recedes to a surprising degree. Especially on the first disc-which includes shoegaze-spawning but not-really-shoegaze greats like Cocteau Twins, the House of Love, . Kane-I don’t hear the Byrds or Velvets, I hear the glassy textures of John McGeoch, Vini Reilly, or Clive Timperley of the Passions (the glorious glistening echoplexed intro to "I’m in Love With a German Film Star")

Telling the story of the overdriven, dreamlike sound of shoegaze without including a song by My Bloody Valentine is like The Great Gatsby without Gatsby or Citizen Kane without Charles Foster Kane. The group pretty much invented the sound, went on to perfect it, and was always the one band that could be counted on to innovate and disrupt. By the time the set is over it's hard not to be impressed by how quickly the shoegaze sound spread and evolved, how many bands were able to use it to an advantage, and - more to the point here - how well the set is put together. Apart from MBV, it's hard to think of any bands they missed, just as it's difficult to think of too many that they could have cut.

This version is the 2018 repress. The only noticable differences to the original are on the rear of the sleeve: - The track numbers are a different colour - On disc 4 track 18, 'Spectrum - True Love Will Find You In The End' has been corrected and the word "True" now forms part of the track title. Track durations are not shown on the packaging and have been taken from a CD player.

Still in a Dream: A Story of Shoegaze 1988-1995.

From the perspective of a well-schooled shoegaze fiend, Still In A Dream is indeed on par with Lenny Kaye’s Nuggets and Brian Eno ’s No New York as a definitive anthology of a movement. Names like The House of Love, . Kane, 14 Iced Bears, Loop, Pale Saints, Flying Saucer Attack, The Darkside, Catherine Wheel, Chapterhouse, Black Tambourine, Smashing Orange, Seefeel, Sun Dial, Swervedriver and Rollerskate Skinny included within mark a keen indication that the box set’s producers were not just resting on their laurels with this collection. Perfect for the learned music scholar, the Goth mom on the go and the curious young listener alike, Still In A Dream: A Story of Shoegaze 1988 – 1995 is a masterpiece in the art of box set compilation, one that sets the bar high for any enterprising opportunist looking to anthologize an entire subgenre.

After their epic five-disc indie-pop compilation, Scared to Get Happy, Cherry Red have continued with their mining of the past by delving into shoegaze with a sprawling, 87-track, five-disc set, Still in a Dream – A Story of Shoegaze. Shoegazing was an initially praised, largely UK-based scene created by music journalists, lumping together a number of effects-driven guitar bands, that was quickly forgotten and derided as the first wave of grunge floated across the pond and was latched onto as 'the next big thing'

More specifically, the story of shoegaze presented in Still in a Dream is the one that requires five discs and 87 tracks by 87 different bands to tell. 87 bands! And here you thought shoegaze was just the bands on Creation Records that weren’t Oasis and the bands on 4AD that weren’t the Pixies. Boy, were you wrong! Or were you? Still in a Dream is the rare example of alternative -era record label Darwinism turning out to be pretty right on. The bands you think of when you think of shoegaze are the ones that got higher-profile promotion and/or major-label distribution  . Singer-songwriter Tony Lucca's first full-length album following a "self-imposed time-out" offers a refreshing look outward as he expands his musical boundaries.

  • Great review. Others that have also has reviewed this set and downgraded the rating (possibly following Allmusics lead) owing to the MBV void. It's a valid point but is it possible that the producers of this set had reached out to the owners of MBV's music and ran into legal issues and or exoribitant costs? if a band such as MBV is a genre defining standout shouldn't we be encouraged to own the album instead of a song on a compilation?
