    Because the geetar playing is wicked. Because it’s hazy and sultry and androgynous and sounds like being shot up with opiates and ketamine. And mermaids in black holes or something.

    If you have to ask, then you just won’t get it. It’s in the top ten albums of all time regardless of genre. If you don’t like it then that’s fine it’s no big deal.

    It sounds heavy, intense, muddled while also sounding vulnerable, beautiful, and genuine. The guitar player really figured something new out that dozens of bands have been copying since.

    I think they suck but a lot of indie music is about brand and lifestyle - I'm not mainstream, I'm so cool etc.

    Because it sounds good and Shields' technique was genuinely innovative.

    Because it's a genuinely perfect album and absolutely the peak of the genre. There are many other great shoegaze bands out there but none were able to match it. And that's not necessarily a knock on them. Loveless was a huge studio effort that took a lot of time and money to make and not many bands get that opportunity.

      I utterly disagree with this statement & I really like Shoegaze. Loveless never ceases to underwhelm me. It's histrionic and discordant in a way that's not pleasing to my ear. I much prefer artists like Curve, Lush or Loop.

        Understandable take, but what Loveless is doing is shaping and bending noisy, dissonant layers of guitar over basic but gleeful pop structures. It's not so much the assault on the ears as much as how Shields uses his tremolo strumming to control and conduct that assault, to make the noise do what he wants it to do.

        the discordance is exactly why I like it. all other shoegaze is too dainty and quaint, whereas Loveless feels like a transcendental, religious experience that nonetheless has very accessible pop melodies underneath the haze. the regular shoegaze is perfectly listenable, but little of it feels like I'm listening to something that can/will be rock canon 50 years from now in the way Loveless does

        I didn't say it has to be your favorite, but it's undeniably the peak of shoegaze. It's the first album that comes to mind for most people and it's number one on the lists for a reason.

    one anon so eloquently put it... that Shields may either be aware or unaware that he's a e-boi or appeals to e-bois
