1 The long-awaited (as in 22 years) follow-up to the best shoegazer-rock album of all time, My Bloody Valentine’s “MBV” took only one week to be widely heralded as one of the best records of 2013. And it absolutely deserves the buzz. Guitar-warp sonic guru Kevin Shields picks up where he left off on the previous disc (“Loveless”), but such hypno-whirring songs as “In Another Way” sound more like revelations than continuations. MBV is making fans pony up at least $16 to download the full record from their site, or not hear it at all. There’s something classic about that, too.
