My Bloody Valentine: Loveless (33 1/3 Series) by Mike McGonigal
My Bloody Valentine: Loveless (33 1/3 Series)

kroe, August 28, 2007

Not a bad read I guess. However being that this is my first 33 1/3 purchase, I'm not too terribly impressed thus far. There were lots of typos and the author seemed to go off on starry-eyed binges of groupyspeak when talking of Kevin Shields- catering more to his legend than to the musician/producer that he is. Don't get me wrong, I'm a huge MBV fan and count "Loveless" in my all-time top 5 records...however, I didn't find myself satisfied at the end in gaining any further insight into their crafting of the songs, or production wizardry...the book was just empty calories for me. I'm planning to start the "Daydream Nation" 33 1/3 tonight...hope it doesn't disappoint!
