Split is the third studio album by English alternative rock band Lush, released on 4AD on 13 June 1994 in the UK and a day later in the US. Two commercial singles were released from the album: "Desire Lines" and "Hypocrite," both released on 30 May 1994. Split was reissued by 4AD on CD in July 2001.
Lush were an English rock band formed in London in 1987. The original line-up consisted of Miki Berenyi (vocals, guitar), Emma Anderson (vocals, guitar), Steve Rippon (bass) and Chris Acland (drums). Phil King replaced Rippon in 1991. They were one of the first bands to have been described with the "shoegazing" label. Following the death of Acland, the group disbanded in 1996.
For Lush's first proper full-length, the band opted to work again with Robin Guthrie. On paper the Guthrie/Lush collaboration seems like a match made in heaven; however, this lacks a punch and balance that begins to frustrate by the latter half. Whatever dynamics Lush appear to be capable of are rendered limp by Guthrie's sonic razing.

A great band with a gift for writing impeccable me. Ah yes, Lush. The little girly band with the swirly, fluffy, cutesy songs.
