iTunes Review

Loveless simultaneously defines the shoegaze movement and proves how intoxicating the genre can be. Two painstaking years in the making, My Bloody Valentine’s second album is a washed-out masterpiece—shaped by blurry waves of guitar noise, droning synthesizers, and the cooly detached, intertwined coo of Bilinda Butcher and Kevin Shields. Individual songs—like “When You Sleep” or “Only Shallow”—are haunting highlights, but the album reveals its true emotional potency when you absorb it from start to finish. Plug in the headphones, press play, and let Loveless carry you away.

Customer Reviews


No amount of praise is too much for this album. When I bought it when it came out (on tape!), it was a difficult listening experience for my young ears. But it is a deep experience that was revisited over and over the years and made me a huge fan of MBV and layered/textured music in general.


My Bloody Valentine has had limited success over the years but has deserved so much more than that. 'Loveless' has proven time and time again to be a record that no matter how many times you listen to it, it never gets old. Ranked by Pitchfork Media as the 2nd best album of the 1990s, it full well deserves such an accolade because of its depth and perfect songwriting. If I was to write such a list I, personally, would most likely rate 'Loveless' as #1 with Pitchfork's #1: Radiohead's 'OK Computer' at my #2 spot. 'Loveless' single-handedly bankrupted My Bloody Valentine's indie record label and took over three years to record, but the end result was completely worth the effort. This album is quite literally a masterpiece and should be an addition to everybody's record collection. 10.0/10.0

An experience worth investigating

Must have.

Like the Velvet Underground, Sonic Youth, and the Jesus and Mary Chain before them, My Bloody Valentine redefined what noise meant within the context of pop songwriting. Led by guitarist Kevin Shields, the group released several EPs in the mid-'80s before recording the era-defining Isn't Anything in 1988, a record that merged lilting, ethereal melodies of the Cocteau Twins with crushingly loud, shimmering distortion. Though My Bloody Valentine rejected rock & roll conventions, they didn't subscribe...
