I've only recently got this album for a listen - Jul 18 - after noting rave reviews. I missed them back in the day. Wish I hadn't as this is a superb album.
Interesting and ground breaking throughout - I enjoyed reading about it's production - the time it took, the various studio's, the innovation and how it nearly bankrupted their music company.
Only downside for me is To Here Knows When - much of the album is about noise but this track pushes it a bit up to 11 for me personally. But "Soon" sure makes up for that

It may take a while to grow on the uninitiated, but the tension between the music's industrial/noise rock veneer and its fluid, ethereal core makes this record a true shoegazing classic.

First listen: I like the general sound and vibe of it as an album but no songs stand out to me at all, just kind of feels like one long stream of guitar. Maybe I need just listen to more but it's seeming very overrated at this point.

Went from being one of those album I was "going to listen to eventually" to being one of my favourites ever in little under a month. There's a magic here that simply cannot be conveyed with words; Loveless is huge in scope, sound and theming, to such an extent that you have to get lost in it to fully appreciate the genius here.

The emotions alone are so varied and yet always, always beautiful - there's a track for every mood. It's the kind of record where it makes you want to cry with happiness because of how melancholy it is.

It seems so confusing and mad on first glance, but it gets you hooked once you start trying to untangle the glorious mess of guitars and other sounds. One of the most satisfying, rewarding and expansive sonic experiences you can grace your ears with.

From sophialeviev 06/13/2018 02:48
As my boyfriend once said, Loveless is nothing short of "a wall of music." The loud, whooshing guitars, almost dream-poppy in cadence, are indecipherable in relationship to the vocals -- that is, existing neither in the background nor the foreground, but blending in the same plane as Belinda and Kevin's vocals. The music envelops the listener, immersing them fully in a sonic experience unlike any other. Once you climb the wall and see what's past the hard-to-dissect, sense-blasting sound, you uncover something absolutely extraordinary. One of the most rewarding albums that has been my pleasure to listen to.

Loveless is a distorted haze, with guitars and keyboards coming in and out. While never overwhelming its is always pleasant.

This album is enigmatic. I keep coming back to it for some reason.
