Music Review: 'Loved' (1994)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Lead Performance: Cranes; Genre: Rock

This gothic English foursome is still trapped in a bell jar on its third full-length release. But someone must have let in some air. Alison Shaw's previously unintelligible shrieks are nearly decipherable, and the unsettling soundscape approaches a clarity that is almost — gasp! — commercial. One gorgeous nightmare of an album. B+
