Synopsis

Amazon.com
Vocalist Suzanne Perry and guitarist Ryan Lum seem like just plain folks--you know, that cute couple from next door who invite you over every once in a while for a tofu stir-fry and sulfite-free wine. Ever, the band's third disc, telegraphs that kind of unassuming charm. It's a languid, atmospheric, but unfussy affair, built around Perry's airy, pretty voice and Lum's echoing electric and calming acoustic guitars. The dreamy, contemplative music is not unlike some of the Cocteau Twins' quieter moments. (Indeed, the strongest track here, "Delta," could have been plucked directly from the Twins' Blue Bell Knoll.) In many ways a transitional album, Ever sees LSD taking small steps away from the spare acousticness of 1992's Idylls and 1994's Ardor and tinkering with denser mixing and light electronic percussion--presaging the confident drum & bass they would employ on 1998's Flux. --Steve Landau

CD Reviews

In the Spirit and Vibe of the Cocteau Twins
07/26/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This CD is completelely astounding! Its a band with an incredibly talented vocalist and an instrumentalist who seem to be inspired on taking the Cocteau Twins style of ambient/gothic dream-pop to a whole new level. All of LSD's albums are worth owning for any fan of this genre. Ever is my favorite because it has the spiritual vibe of their first two albums with the electro-hypnotic sound of Flux. This particualar album is in my opinion the best of both worlds in that respect. Along with Ardor, its perfect for meditation. You may have an out-of-body experience if you listen too intently! I hope LSD's upcoming release is more balanced like this than having the strictly drum n bass sound of Flux."
Awesome female etherial music
Mark Frost | Dallas, TX USA | 03/12/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Few bands are essential to a music collection but LSD is perhaps the flagship of the "Heavenly Voices" genre. Like much on the Projekt label, they are under appreciated, but if you like excellent etherial "heavenly voices" or "angelic" music, buy all three of their CD's. You won't regret it."
Silky-smooth, very relaxing music...a must have...
Node Rogue | Decatur, IN | 09/25/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"For those people who are stressed out at any one point in their lives, they should look into this CD on the Projekt label. Projekt has published some very off-the-wall, not very well-known stuff in the past, but Love Spirals Downwards makes an album that anyone can enjoy. Like most Projekt titles, this one doesn't get the publicity it so rightly deserves.This album is comparable to James Iha's "Let It Come Down" as far as relaxation is concerned. Each track flows, giving the listener a sense of floating, even euphoria. At some points the album seems to get Gregorian Chantish in a way, except there are no monks and no droning--just the two beautiful voices of Suzanne Perry and Ryan Lum. A quality album with quality music...just buy it. :)"
