AV Club recently posted a feature article titled "Where to start with the enigmatic music known as shoegaze." The article attempts to offer up some choice albums to start with if you are somehow unfamiliar with the genre and are interested in delving in - classic albums from Ride, My Bloody Valentine, Lush, Swervedriver, Slowdive, and Chapterhouse are all mentioned and discussed briefly.

Fans who are well aware of shoegaze and its awesomeness still have a great reason to click on over to the article - the comments section. Though there TONS of comments, it's well worth taking the time to scroll through them - many great albums are mentioned, plus there are some other entertaining topics discussed, including what shouldn't be classified as shoegaze.

Other great resources for shoegaze music include Dean Bromley's daily shoegaze/dreampop newspaper and if you're on Twitter, be sure to follow the Shoegaze Collective for tons of links to old and new shoegaze artists from around the world.
