‘Nevermind’ may have been ultimately the most important record released in 1991 but My Bloody Valentines ‘Loveless’ was without doubt the most ground breaking. A lot has been written about ‘Loveless’ and the way it reconstructs the way a rock album should sound, so I won’t bother trying to describe what is ultimately an indescribable album. One thing that is clear, this is a rock album, a rock album that’s all about the guitars. Another thing…its loud very, very loud. Often described as dream pop ect... dreamy...yes but pop…probably not. Early My Bloody Valentine tended to cover the same territory of Jesus and Mary Chain et al so they initially wrote more conventionally structured songs that could be described as pop, with regards to ‘Loveless’ I think it’s a bit a stretch to describe anything as pop. ‘Loveless’ is a beast of an album, maybe you will love it, maybe you’ll hate it, but as far as loud guitar records go, this rocks in its own unique way.
