Rob Da Bank has more- recently put together this brilliant, amazing, soaring compilation (pictured above, Volume 3 of the Sci-Fi-Lo-Fi series on Soma recordings). Ideal for those who need, want an introduction /starting - point for that daydream perfect, on an adventure, shoe-gazing (to use the label certain media outlets placed upon a number of arguably not so similar groups) sound.

2. Ultra Vivid Scene - Mercy Seat - 1988
3. Dinosaur Jr. - Freak Scene - 1988
4. Pale Saints - Sight of You - 1990
5. Ride - Nowhere - 1990
6. Spiritualised - If I Were With Her Now 1992
7. Chapterhouse - Pearl 1993
8. Slowdive - When The Sun Hits 1994
9. Lush - Sweetness & Light - 2000

Very cool Comp Mr.O, I strongly recommend you explore the Pale Saints further - namely the album "The Comforts Of Madness" on 4AD. One of my all time faves.
