yes, loveless was endlessly tinkered with in the studio... but there's something about walls of guitar and feedback that makes me all warm inside. not crap.

crap or not crap i couldn't say -- i've heard bits and pieces here and there. most of it sounded alright. one friend that played them for me made a remark that they went through 6 engineers just trying to get the right cowbell sound. i wasn't sure if he was kidding me or not, so i decided to believe him. it's funnier that way.

I'm gonna go ahead and say CRAP. I used to really like Loveless but then I figured out that I only really liked the first three songs. That album's front-loaded like a motherfucker. I've also heard the very first album where they were a bad rockabilly band. Also, I'm getting tired of waiting for the next album to see if Loveless was a fluke or not. We're headed for contentious genius territory here.

good god, i think they're great. i could do without the pre-'ecstasy' stuff, but 'isn't anything', 'loveless', and the EPs surrounding those records are pretty damned amazing. wish i'd had the chance to see them live...

Don't get me wrong, Loveless is a great album that gives me shivers everytime I listen to it.

But the preceeding recordings aren't anything (ha ha), and the whole "I'll never be able to top that record so I'm not ever going to put out any music until it does" attitude of Mr. Sheilds - total puss.


For this reason, with a waffle of 9,

My Bloody Valentine = Crap

Lush and lavish with layers of sound, and gorgeous noise. Guitar sounds that are, at times, reminiscent of a jet engine. Loveless was a phoenominal record to say the very least. But the old stuff was unbearable. Therefore... dividing this band in half!

Pre Isn't Anything - CRAP!!!

Post Isn't Anything - NOT CRAP!!!

All in all... this equals an overall rating of 7... tipping the scales in favor of NOT CRAP!!! It's amazing how a band can ride pretty much on the coattails of one album. It is lovely though... isn't it.
I could have been a contender...

MBV have a couple of minor masterpieces in the form of "Sunny Sundae Smile" and "Strawberry Wine," perfect songs (in my opinion) that bear little stylistic relation to loveless. that puts them in geniusland for me.

My Bloody Valentine, The Band - Boring idle rockers? CRAP!

My Bloody Valentine, The Movie - Canadian teens getting axed to death by an enraged miner? NOT CRAP!

Not Crap

I think MBV is amazing. I like a couple songs on Loveless. On the rest, the fucking synths annoy the hell out of me.

I like Isn't Anything much better. Loveless sometimes reminds me of Enya or something...[/i]

NOT CRAP. However, Kevin Sheilds is the Axl Rose of shoegaze rockers.

Even though it doesn't sound like it when you listen to my band, but they are my single biggest guitar/sonic influence.....well, it is probably noticable on our song "parched lips"....I am not saying they are my biggest overall musical influence but I truly love everything about them....all three phases of MVB are brilliant! Suck it.

I would like to recommend that everyone obtain a copy of Kevin Shields' mix of Mogwai's Mogwai Fear Satan that is on the bonus cd of their remix album Kicking A Dead Pig. It is absolutely fucking massive.

This is hard.
Loveless is the only record I like by them, yet it is an amazing record.
Everything else is terrible.

Not Crap. The EPs You Made Me Realise, Tremolo, and Glider were the high points, but I have much love for both Isn't Anything and Loveless too. Catch me on the right day and I'll swear that "You Made Me Realise" is the perfect song. Still mad I skipped their live show with the extra-deafening 40-minute version of it.

eephour wrote:Isnt My Bloody Valentine a fucking Simpsons reference?

No, it refers to the movie. Anyway the band got started in 1984, well before the TV show.
