A LOT like Psychocandy by Jesus and the Mary Chain. A little bit more of everything, and more well hidden melodies. But I'd put Jesus or Dinosaur Jr up on top-30 and this one a bit below the masters of low-fi, wall of sound and high strung pretentious rock.

I find myself coming back to this album a lot. I even bought it on CD hoping to hear it at a higher quality.
Out of BEA's top 30 albums, this one, more than any other is a bit of an oddity for me. There are others in the top 30 like the Stone Roses self-titled where I can say I get the appeal, but I don't personally care for it. But this album more than any of the others I find myself going back and forth trying to decide how I feel about it.
I think I'm finally starting to get the appeal, but it requires more than one listen. Take your time to review this album. I kept coming back to it every once in a while until I hit a point where I was like "oh, I think this must be what people like in it!" Once you know what people see in it you'll be able to better discuss how important or unimportant Loveless is in music history. But don't just dismiss this because it isn't your taste.
Currently, I sit at about a 7/10 so I like it, but I'm still pretty close to the middle. We'll see if over time my opinion changes much. :)

From Paule
This is no doubt a good album. But I really don't get the hype about it being one of the best. I guess the sound is a unique blend of noise, thats cool. But the actual songwriting and composition is not really that interesting and apart from the last song, groove is lacking. Explain to me plz.

From Kurtco
I am a child of the 90s so of course many of my favorite albums come from these years. Im an Hip-hop lover, I discovered rock by band of alternative rock of my generation such as RATM, Pixies, Nirvana, Radiohead but also the Icelandic band My Bloody Valentine. "Loveless" is Shoegaze's most important, most essential album for any shoegazer purist. This album mixes perfectly noise (chaotic guitar) and melody (chilling and cold). The virtuosity of the sound, the textures, the melodies, the rhythmic structures make this album a timeless classic. It is also the battle of the organic against the machine, of the sensuality even of the sexuality represented by the duo of Shields - Butcher singers, against the impassive coldness of the waves. "Loveless" is an album difficult to access but remains one of the most important record in the history of Rock. This album marked my adolescence.

Ups and downs for me. I understand the hype, though. There's something special to their sound.

Favs: Only Shallow, Soon, I Only Said.
