Lonely Is an Eyesore. I knew Dead Can Dance before this 4AD sampler came around, but this was the disk I'd loan to others to convert them. Of course it's only the starting point for the 4AD sound, and perhaps not an ideal representation of it either, but it's my disk, and well loved. 2 people found this helpful.

Nine very different artistic visions, somehow melded together through Ivo's genius for a certain sound, makes for an iconic record that is much more than a mere "sampler", but an artistic manifesto and proclamation that still rings true 30 years later.

Lonely Is an Eyesore" is a real rare compilation of music by artists on the " 4AD " label released in June 1987. A VHS and Beta compilation of music videos for all the songs was released as well. The CD was released in the 1990s in a few copies all over. The album title comes from the track "Fish" by Throwing Muses, at that time the newest signing to the label
from album ’Lonely Is An Eyesore’. Written by Andrew Gray · Mark Cox · Mick Allen. Produced by John Fryer · The Wolfgang Press. The Cocteau Twins track featured on Lonely Is An Eyesore, Crushed, is a track recorded at the same time as the Love’s Easy Tears EP, and would easily have been the fifth track to that EP had it not been intended for Lonely Is An Eyesore. Crushed continues in the same wall-of-sound vein as Love’s Easy Tears, and even the title of the song gives a similar impression as the other titles on that record. The song itself features ringing guitars that spiral upward while Simon plays at the piano and Liz’s characteristic wail fleshes out the piece.
