Amoeba Review

Brad 10/15/2012

Loveless was released in 1991. My Bloody Valentine had released Isn't Anything in 1988 and many singles and EPs in between. But I had never heard anything about them until Loveless. I don't really remember a point in my life not liking My Bloody Valentine. But obviously there was life before this band. I think I just fell in love with My Bloody Valentine after a couple of seconds into Loveless. I actually probably just bought this album because of the artwork. "Only Shallow" was the first track on the album and all I needed to know that I had found my new favorite band. They sounded like nothing I had ever heard before. And they got me ready for a whole new type of music. I would soon be obsessed with Lush, Chapterhouse, Slowdive, Curve, Spiritualized and anybody who sounded like My Bloody Valentine. The music was loud and full of feedback and distortion and all sorts of stuff that I really not heard before. Except for maybe Sonic Youth. They were sort of the Sonic Youth of Ireland. The music was somehow beautiful beneath all that noise. I could not get enough Loveless in my life. I have listened to this album so much over the years.  These albums have never not been a part of my life since I first heard them. I picked up Isn't Anything a couple of years after Loveless and collected all the EPs that I could find. Loveless features "Only Shallow," "When You Sleep," "Sometimes" and "Soon." But this album is really just fantastic from start to finish. You can't not listen to the whole thing once you start it. Some of my favorite songs are on the EPs. I love "Cigarette In Your Bed," "Drive It All Over Me," "Honey Power" and "You Made Me Realise." But Loveless will always be one of my favorite albums. It was my introduction to the band. The album cover remains one of my favorites. Where would we be without Loveless and My Bloody Valentine? The band only released two studio albums, but when you create something so amazing sometimes it is better just to stop there. These albums could never be replicated. We finally got some long overdue remastered reissues of the My Bloody Valentine catalog this year.
