I Could Live in Hope is the debut studio album by American indie rock band Low. It was released on February 18, 1994 on Vernon Yard Recordings. A reaction to the abrasiveness of alternative rock in the early 1990s, when grunge had reigning popularity, Low "eschewed conventional songwriting in favour of mood and movement

I Could Live in Hope inhabits a world of disquiet, like the lingering malaise of a bad dream, where a line as seemingly innocuous as She used to let me cut her hair feels ridden with shame and discomfort. Dream pop records often come steeped in instrumental flourishes and pillowy effects; on I Could Live in Hope, Low prove that small gestures can be transformative, too. –Ben Cardew. Listen: Low, Lullaby.

Talk about Low - I Could Live In Hope

Forgot to post this, but back in November I asked Low on twitter if there were any plans to repress "I Could Live In Hope" on vinyl, and they replied with this:"Maybe in the next year..." followed by a space invader emoji. just hold off on buying from the resellers for now. There's a decent chance that this album will get the 25th anniversary treatment.
Holding out for the record store day list! Maybe gold or something cool
I gather that most fans of this album purchased it when it came out. I've only just now discovered it, unfortunately. It's like somebody set out to deliberately make a depressing album. I do like the warm atmosphere, but the music slowly plods along with little variation. Every track sounds the same. The instrumentation is sparse, with a preponderance of ride cymbal. Mournful male/female vocals haunt each song until, by the third track, you just can't take it anymore. I could see this being played in a coffee shop back then, but it would have driven away most customers.Unless you're reliving your depressed glory days of the 1990s (when you really had nothing to be depressed about), avoid this.
I can't even imagine that somebody write comment like this... Magic & beautiful album.
you have bad taste. we don't care about your opinion of the band only the quality of the record
If I don't like Mick Jagger's voice it would be useless to write a review about any Rolling Stones CD. Same here - this review is completely useless since the author is complaining about aspects characteristical for the band in general, like sparse instrumentation etc..
"avoid this" the worst commentary ever, whether to be said about music or any other thing in life. ALWAYS try it and decide for yourself. for me the record is stunning as well, my favourite from Low. I will hopefully return to my message a few years later and check if I have a new favourite from them.
Cannot disagree more - it's a stunning record.
