As one would expect, m b v makes for an immersive and challenging listen. It doesn’t reach for the otherworldly textures of Loveless nor does it echo the energetic noise-pop of their debut Isn’t Anything, but to draw comparisons to its predecessors is to miss the point. Fans may have been waiting for decades, but m b v simply sounds as if it’s always existed. And, for a band that encapsulate timelessness, isn’t that enough?
