    Pretentious hipster garbage. And that's all that can really be said about this album (unfortunately there's a onehundredfifty character minimum). **** **** AND DICKS

    This is a great album, not quite one of my favorites though, it did inspire much of what I listen to, but does it hold up? sort of... I guess? I prefer the stuff that it inspired really... 8/10 A classic from the 90's, along with Aeroplane, OK Computer, and Slanted and Enchanted, but I think I like those albums better.

    There were better "shoe gazer" bands out there such as the early Lush EPs and more recently the intriguing neo-shoe gaze band Serena-Maneesh. For me this was one of the most overrated albums of the 90s' saturated with saccharine melodies and arrangement whose creative edginess only rarely surfaced.

    Having grown up in the 90's, loving 90's music, and then years later seeing "Best of the90's" lists with this album on it. I never heard of it before. Never listened to it before. I wanted to like it. And didn't like it all. I can see how this album may have inspired others. But it doesn't inspire me.

    How, exactly, do you follow an album like Loveless? It's a question that pop has yet to answer. [Jun 2012, p.119]

    Loveless holds it own as one of the great rock albums, period. [Jun 2012, p.90]

    This 1991 album is the best of three reissues of their work – also available are their debut, Isn't Anything, and a 2CD compilation of outtakes and EPs.
