haha, I remember this guy I used to work with at a record store discovering MBV and thinking he discovered this totally unknown band... and he left a msg on my cell that said "I found this band that we'll both love, because it's a combination of each of our favorite bands.... they sound just like Sonic Youth mixed with The Cure... they're called... My... Bloody... Valentine!" haha.

I think Isn't Anything is better than Loveless too, but Loveless is really about the atmoshpere, like SyrFox said. So, maybe, I need to be in a very particular mood to like it because I currently think it's one of the most overrated albums of all time... Anyway, I think their best song might be "Sometimes" or "(When You Wake) You're Still in a Dream".

I prefer Loveless to IA because listening to it is like being absorbed into another level of consciousness. Its like a whole other world opens up when its played. Many of the songs on the record took longer for my punk mind to appreciate like "come in alone" and "to here knows when" but now i love them esp all the cool outros mbv wrote on the record.

IA is a great record i especially love Shields more innocent sounding vocals on this record and the more straight ahead songs on it. At the same time though IA sounds like a band but Loveless sounds like an experience. I just love that surrounding atmosphere to Loveless that makes the record harder to believe that it was made by normal humans who eat breakfast and go grocery shopping.


In Conclusion, IA is shrooms and Loveless is ecstasy.Take your pick

thanks god my hearing after 2 MBV gigs in just two days stayed ok (we were pretty much very upfront). I refused to use earplugs I got offered (coz I never use them). it was my first time seeing them live, but god they were loud. if I'll decide to see them @ ATP this Dec., I make sure I use some...just in case.

funny but my loudest gig experience would be The Orb. It was in a small venue and Alex wanted max. levels what soundman could afford. them bass sounds were actually physicaly painfull. my hearing survived.
