Upon Quique's original release in 1993, Seefeel was widely perceived as an imagined collaboration between their then-recent predecessors The Orb and My Bloody Valentine, seemingly drawing on the space of the former and the bliss of the latter. Though generating sounds from an ostensibly orthodox palette of guitar, bass, drums, and voice, the quartet's rapturous music nevertheless appeared dislocated from the strictures of the "rock song." Preceding Seefeel releases on Warp and Rephlex, Quique sounded so immersive that the listening experience was frequently related to the womb, to suspension in amniotic fluids. Re-issued 14 years on (with a bonus disc of rare remixes and archive tracks), Quique retains this sense of wonderment, naïveté, and bliss.
