My Bloody Valentine - "In Another Way"

It might have taken Kevin Shields this long to finally come to terms with what’s become obvious in his band’s long absence—there’s no topping Loveless. It is the most of what it is, there’s no way to do what it did, but more. Instead, mbv traced their pre-defined sound in lowercase italics, finding sideways tweaks to make it feel fresh, never afraid to become slightly smaller in the process. This one, especially, feels like an itch lingering for ten years that's just now been finally, properly scratched.

Nine Inch Nails - "Came Back Haunted"

Can you imagine if Trent Reznor had totally disappeared after The Downward Spiral and this was the first we’d heard thing we’d heard from him since? You’re punished for your presence sometimes, too.
