I Love "Loveless"

There's been a lot of whispers about the remastered version of My Bloody Valentine's Loveless finally coming out this January.

I've been listening to this one a ton lately. You haven't lived until you're racing down the freeway in your minivan blasting "When You Sleep" so loud the man on the Harley looks over.

If Achtung Baby didn't exist - it would absolutely be the best album of all time.

If My Bloody Valentine didn't exist you COULD argue there'd be no Achtung Baby

but yeah I can't believe this thread hasn't had any replies! This album fucking rules - love it so much. I used to ask my local record store for an update on the remasters once a month with no news every time obviously

There were even copies sent to the press and reviewed, and ads put in music papers to announce the release (no dates mentioned though haha) but i guess we should never have expected such a precise date from Kevin Shields....
I've never associated it with high speed driving but that's just me :P i used to listen to the Isn't Anything album (which i THINK i prefer - very hard to choose) while on long bike rides though.

if they do come out in January i'll be very happy, it's about time I replaced my battered copies by now

It's great for sure - you're exactly right about cruising with When You Sleep blasting, that's pretty much the best feeling in the world. Nonetheless, my favourite shoegaze album is still Chapterhouse's Whirlpool.

I finally listened to this album today, thinking that it could not possibly live up to its reputation. But it turns out that I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's definitely an experience, as it seems to wrap around you as you listen. And now I also know whence Billy Corgan drew his inspiration for Siamese Dream.

Never occurred to me to try this album as a "driving record" which is how I listen to most of my music these days and seem to enjoy it most. Thanks for the idea.

The good news is that it only gets better with time. It's one of the albums that is great no matter the volume or location.

I completely agree.

Yes - another great shoegaze album - along with Slowdive's Souvlaki and Ride's Nowhere. Also - anything by the Cocteau Twins up until Heaven or Las Vegas. (I never considered the Cocteau Twins a shoegaze band, but it seems that enough critics have labeled them as such so I guess I might as well do it too...)

This album makes me want to own the best headphones money can buy. Or learn to create them, if existing ones aren't sufficient.

If I were a musician - I would take this as the greatest possible compliment.

Love this album. Seriously one of the best records of all time. Also love the Tremolo and Glider EP's, which work as nice little companion pieces. Speaking of shoegazer, I recently got a copy of Drop Nineteen's "Delaware." Really like a few tracks so far.

I was going to post links to the various other MBV threads that have popped up over the years here, but there's not really a point. Unfortunately there's not much to be said that hasn't been already. MBV's entire discography is worth owning, particularly the EP's the apparent new JackInTheBox mentioned (there is a long time poster here with the exact same user name, just in lower case, who's also a huge shoegaze / dreampop fan). I'm always wary of remasters of things like this, as the potential that I'll find the remaster disappointing is typically larger than the potential I'll like it.

Nowhere is one of my all time fav albums. Vapour Trail 4 lief.

I am new, actually. I was surprised when the system allowed that username. Didn't think to check lowercase. I can try to get it changed to avoid confusion.

Haha, yeah, I was really confused for a second there. There are probably only a few of us here in Bang and Clatter who know the other Jack In the Box, but if you're planning on spending time in this section of the forum (I hope so, you have good taste!), maybe the mods will let you adjust it.
