My Bloody Valentine "Loveless"

My Bloody Valentine, my bloody valentine... What can we say about how paradoxal sometimes love gets? This album is like a potion of all the antagonic feelings there are in a romantic relationship. All of its atonality and a cacophonic indeterminancy caracterize romance. There's a reason for My Bloody Valentine's debut album to be named "Loveless".
The track list is the following:
  1. "Only Shallow" (Bilinda Butcher, Shields) – 4:17
  2. "Loomer" (Butcher, Shields) – 2:38
  3. "Touched" (Colm Ó Cíosóig) – 0:56
  4. "To Here Knows When" (Butcher, Shields) – 5:31
  5. "When You Sleep" – 4:11
  6. "I Only Said" – 5:34
  7. "Come in Alone" – 3:58
  8. "Sometimes" – 5:19
  9. "Blown a Wish" (Butcher, Shields) – 3:36
  10. "What You Want" – 5:33
  11. "Soon" – 6:58
The songs "Only Shallow" and "Sometimes" are the ones I advise you to hear. "Sometimes" has an ambiguous sense of a shallow happiness, if that's possible at all: the person who hears it doesn't know if it is proposed to make you cry or to make you feel good, kind of in a nostalgic way.
When this album came out, there were many music critics and melomaniacs that immediately recognized the importance of this work in contemporary music, particularly in the developing of the "shoegaze" genre and as inspiration for many bands. All music, Rolling Stone, Robert Christgau, NME, Popmatters, The Quietus and many other entities said marvelous things about this album.
