Synopsis

Album Description
Love Spirals Downwards emerged in the early 1990's as one of the forerunners of a style of ethereal, blissful pop termed shoegazer by the music press. The duo's 1992 debut release, Idylls, introduced listeners to a unique, sumptuous sound of layered, interwoven guitar textures and warm, lilting female vocals. Creating a style that was as much about mood as melody, Love Spirals Downwards quickly gained a loyal stronghold of fans eager to embark on this fervent excursion.

CD Reviews

Rainy day kind of CD
Staring Girl | Thornton, CO | 08/15/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Love spirals downwards: 'Idylls' is a great, low-key, rainy day kind of CD. There is a general mood of sadness and despair at times then blithesome optimism at others in this CD. Each song sort of collides into the next. There is a unique mesh of sounds with souring electric guitars, acoustics, and kind of tribal sounding drums. The vocals are very serene, soothing, and kind of dreamy, Celtic influenced.

It reminds me of the group `Love is colder than death' a lot, only less dark and gothic. The guitars actually sound like `The Cure' to me, especially in the eighth track, 'Stir about the Stars'.

This is the kind of music you can just lay down on your soft bed, light some candles, put on your head phones, and just let the music take you away.

"Love Spirals Downwards's angelic ambient style is fantastic. Idylls peacefully dark dreampop track is a further evidence that Love Spirals Downwards is one of the greatest ethereal bands ever to grace us."
Hypnotic dreampop

"the first of this duos (ryan lum and suzanne perry) albums just goes to show that more people in a band doesn't necessarily result in better music. all of you lousy DIVA's(christina, britney, mandy, what ever)... take note: suzanne's understated and entrancing voice is SIMPLy a more effective instrument anything you could ever achieve. this absolutely hypnotic and stirring album is just beautiful. of course, you're only taking the word of someone you've never met and have no idea of his musical tastes, but this cd has established itself at the top of my all time favorite list. If you are in the least interested in any aethereal-pop/shoegazer, PICK THIS ONE UP!!!"
