The December Sound - The Silver Album (2007)

This is one of the best shoegaze albums since Loveless. I couldn't really find any comprehensive reviews for this album (but then again, I didn't try too hard either), so here's synapsistapped's review over on Rate Your Music (5/5):
"The Silver Album is a breath of fresh air. It is shoegaze in its best form, filled with buzzing guitar sounds complemented by soft, echoing vocals unintelligibly distant in the background. With this release, The December Sound indubitably distance themselves from the generic minimalist post-rock sounds revered by today's indie culture. The music effectively pulls the same emotional strings, but instead leaves the listener with pure substance rather than ambiguous sentiments."

Take his word for it. This album is great.
Get it here.
