For many people familiar with rock music, Souvlaki is considered as one of the top three shoegaze albums of all time! What is more to say!

Slowdive specialized in making music that was slow, sad, and intensely beautiful. But, instead of stark minimalism and sweet vocal harmony, their tools were entirely from the shoegaze kit: washed-out guitars, even-more-washed-out vocals, and a phalanx of effects that turn all source sounds into dreamy after effects, lingering in the air whilst keeping no real solid form.
Souvlaki is probably Slowdive's best. For many, the latter is the last document of shoegaze's initial era; for, not long after it, Slowdive broke up, and shoegaze was pronounced dead by the UK press. The band weren't much loved in their day, but if they were to reform and play again these days, people would be openly weeping; time has been kind to Slowdive. And, especially, to Souvlaki. (
("According to interviews with the band, the album was titled after an explicit skit on the first album by telephone pranksters The Jerky Boys, containing the line: "My wife loves that Greek shit. She'll suck your cock like souvlaki" -Wikipedia)
