Genres

The success of 1988’s Isn’t Anything propelled My Bloody Valentine into the sphere of shoegaze fame, the masterpiece that would soon follow in 1991 would launch the group into the rock ’n’ roll pantheon. 19 different studios, a handful of engineers, whispers of a steep £250,000 bill and a bankrupt label later, Loveless would essentially be the last we’d hear from My Bloody Valentine for over two decades. But even its notorious history is overshadowed by its immense invention and monumental beauty.

It only feels right to call Loveless an elemental record. Besides provoking the collective imagination of pedal enthusiasts all over the globe with its visionary, pitch-bent reinvention of guitar music, the blistering limitlessness of ‘To Here Knows When’ reverberates through the body like a mysterious force of dynamism, an unthinkable stack of amplifiers jacked into an exploding star. Beneath the powerful tidal waves of ‘When You Sleep’ and ‘Come In Alone’ lies a deep, heartbreakingly romantic pop bedrock, a form of bittersweetness designed for big rooms and headphone spaces alike. Meanwhile, ‘Sometimes’ remains the definitive introspective indie rock slow-dancer, its acoustic-driven bedroom aesthetic belied by a towering wall of distortion.

Intimacy and universality go hand-in-hand on Loveless; it’s sequenced like a tailor-made mixtape coyly handed to your crush, best experienced in one sitting. A record that's unique sonic capabilities still holds immense influence across a multitude of genres still to this day, some three decades later.
