So Goswell's own solo debut, entitled Waves Are Universal, seems not just long overdue, but, more critically, freighted with the high expectations of a horde of eager listeners. On the album's lead-off track, "Warm Summer Sun", Goswell meets those expectations head-on. Over a gentle guitar strum, she sings about falling over from lack of forward motion and decides not to "waste my time on things that stop me feeling. Drums and guitar kick in for the second verse and the song builds gradually.

Waves Are Universal is the debut solo album from former Slowdive and Mojave 3 singer/bassist Rachel Goswell. It was produced by David Naughton, and released by 4AD on June 14, 2004 in the UK and June 22, 2004 in the US. The album was recorded after production and touring for Mojave 3's album Spoon and Rafter resumed

Regardless, Waves Are Universal proves that Goswell can carry a whole record on her own without any trouble. A second solo album - with more risks taken - is a necessary thing.

Sleepless in Tooting closes the affair from her earlier Sleep Shelter EP on a smiley upbeat Hammond organ note. The only downfalls of the whole project, are the rather vague, impressionistic lyrics, alluding to a coolly detached sense of loss, without any memorable images of bite and conviction, or sense of her own experience colouring the palette. But when they are couched in such hazy lazy acoustic warmth it is hard to resist their draw.

Fans of Slowdive and Mojave 3 have been pining for a Rachel Goswell album for years. Although 4AD billed Waves Are Universal as sounding like something you wouldn't expect from her, it actually sounds almost exactly like you thought it would, provided you've heard a Mojave 3 song at some point during the previous eight years. The British folk elements that have been slowly coming to the fore in the Mojave 3 records are more of a factor here.
