First couple of Ride EPs, Slowdive for sure. And believe it or not, the first EPs and first album by Verve (before they had to change their name to "The Verve) still qualify as "best of their time" in my mind. "A Storm In Heaven" is still awesome, despite how lame they became later on.
Loop is one of my favorite bands ever, but I do not see them as "shoegazer" at all. Too dark, too heavy, drugged up but not super blissed-out. Still, absolutely essential.

it's got two absolutely marvellous songs on it, as far as I remember, "Stormy Clouds" and "Life's an Ocean". I used to loved this CD, when I was like 15.

ahhh, won't you die already?

look, there's a "search function, just type "shoegaze" into it and you'll find all the crap that's been said about such horrid overused term in this board.

CHECK THIS!!! A fucking mindblowing piece of music:

Glifted - Under and In
 
Artist: Glifted
Title: Under and In
Catalog#: MGH004
Price: $12.75
 


Tracks on this CD:Is There Any AlwaysThe ScareOn and OnBaby's BlueHeavy IonLast In LineEvery Single SecondThe GroundRed LiftDromoscope

"This is some of the most impressive post-Loveless rock in years." - All Music Guide

" Under And In" is the brilliant debut by two key figures in the Champaign-Urbana rock scene - Tim Lash (of Hum) and T.J. Harrison (of Lovecup) - teaming up under the name Glifted. This great album lives up to the high expectations set for the duo with a hypnotic blend of disembodied voices, swelling guitars, and looping percussion.

A headswimming collision of sound that comes highly recommended to mourners of guitarrorists My Bloody Valentine and Seefeel, as well as worshippers of the evocative crush of musical innovation. Through Hum, Tim's guitar work has influenced numerous heavy hitters in search of the perfect riff like The Deftones. Through touring, Hum formed a musical kinship with Mercury Rev. Somehow "Under And In" straddles the line between both musical realms.

It's heavy and overwhelming. It's cinematic and sensual. It's a million tiny exploding universes. And it's better than I ever could have conceived.
