Digitally remastered two CD edition of this seminal 1991 album from one of the most influential British guitar bands of the '80s and '90s. This double disc version contains a second previously unreleased version of the album, which has been mastered from the original analogue tapes. The original line up of the Shoegazing legends, with their awe-inspiring mix of feedback guitar and indistinct lyrics, have influenced countless bands since their 1988 debut, Isn't Anything. Loveless, the long-delayed follow-up performed well beyond anyone's expectations and has remained one of the most cherished releases of it's time. Sony/BMG.
My Bloody Valentine's entire career has been aiming toward the perfect guitar noise that Kevin Shields has in his head: a pure, warm, androgynous but deeply sexual rush of sound. Loveless is overwhelming, with Shields and Bilinda Butcher's guitars and voices blending into each other until they become a distant orchestra, the rhythm section striding in majestic lockstep, and occasional bursts of dance rhythms (as on the single "Soon") buoying the live instruments' warp and drift. Furiously loud but seductive rather than aggressive, the album flows like a lava stream from one track into another, subsuming everything in the mix into its blissful roar, and pulsing like a lover's body. --Douglas Wolk --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.
Everything was as I expected, and the album is enjoyable to listen to in my opinion. Might get remastered edition, yeah.Published 13 months ago by Arvin H.
