My Bloody Valentine – Loveless (1991)

Shoegazing, Noise Pop, Experimental Rock.

There is so much that can be said about this album that I’m rendered speechless. The blend of sound is the epitome of tension and resolution, noise and melody, intensity and tenderness. Put it on when your mood fits a textured spectrum of reds and blues, or when you want to immerse yourself in a fervent kind of entrancement. The only minuscule misgiving I have that makes the album just short of perfection is its lack of a narrative arc. However, the album is so engaging and cohesive that time flies by and the end comes too quickly. An album that doesn’t have a single “bad” track, the five most memorable songs to me are Only Shallow, To Here Knows When, When You Sleep, I Only Said, and Sometimes. //
