Inspired by the DDN vs The Bends thread apparently on the radiohead boards, I thought I'd do the same here, but with a different album that most SY fans hold in high esteem... Loveless by My Bloody Valentine?

For me, I prefer Daydream. By an absolutely tiny stretch.

Wah, now that's a hard choice. I think I'll go with Daydream Nation, the Trilogy makes the difference.

sorry but dumb thread. you cant compare and contrast these two albums properly. its just a matter of opinion. both rule in certain ways.

its like asking whats better the xbox or a slice of black forset gateaux.

DDN all the way. no other album is ever gonna win in my opinion (unless you put it up against another SY album).

I disagree, I find Daydream Nation a lot more consistent. I feel I have to be in the right mood for Loveless, whereas Daydream works all the time. If that makes sense.

I just though it would be interesting to se where the general opinion lies, as is the point of polls.



...And its obviously a slice of black forest gateaux. Fact.

It's amazing how the sound of these two albums kind of aged badly compared to other records by the bands in question. I've listened to Isn't Anything the other day for the first time in aeons and it still sounds as good as when I first heard it.

Both ''Soft As Snow (But Warm Inside)'' and ''Nothing Much To Lose'' were always favourites and still are. All the songs on it are great, though.

They're very different, and conjure up very different feelings. I totally agree with the comment that Daydream works all the time, whilst Loveless is an album you need to be in the mood for. Daydream flows PERFECTLY, and I also love the persona the album has, and the way that kind of implodes in on itself with Hyperstation, Rain King and Kissability towards the end. At the start you've the brash, confrontational and rebellions anthems, a really formidable persona-Teenage Riot, the Sprawl- and then it just collapses and undermines itself, things get dark, sinister and neurotic. And I just think that particularly is the most facinating part of Daydream -it is more profound than any peice of music I've ever heard, even Loveless.
