  • Saberdragon
Some quick thoughts on this pressing as compared to a 1991 townhouse dmm cutThe analog remaster has a cleaner sound, and the drums cut through more naturally. Additionally, the sound is more filled out in certain parts of the mix. This album will sound amazing on pretty much any official copy, but the analog remaster truly is an “alternate” experience, almost like Kevin went back and fixed mistakes in the actual mix itself. That being said, the dmm cut has an edgier and more biting mix that I still prefer somehow so really it’s up to you. 2018 - clearer, 1991 - sharper. Side note - not that it matters, but the album cover on the 1991 version looks better but the sleeve on the 2018 version is way sturdier - something I would actually trust to hold its shape on my shelf over time
  • Brightcaster
The vinyl gods must have been looking out for me. I preordered this for $45 or whatever it was at the time (2018) and received an ugly copy. It played fine, but it wasn't what I paid for. The band sent me another free of charge. This pressing is simply incredible. I check Discogs now and see its going for $200. I would, however, trade for an original 1991 Creation pressing of this if anyone actually reads this.
  • Dianantrius
What was so bad about your original copy? I've kept mine sealed, is there no way to determine without opening it?
  • Qucid
I own a copy of the 2018 release. Guess i can retire early!
  • Vital Beast
With all due respect....you would be a fool to do that and you would discover i'm right, too late. I have a friend who owns both and he is adamant...if he had to let go of one it would be the 1991 copy. Back in 1991 vinyl was so thin and resolution so unimpressive that this 200grs reissue is GOLD compared to Sterling Silver... and he is not the only one to say so. Don't forget Shields had NO idea his Loveless would become a legend in it's own right. All he knew is he was trying hard to be highly original. The 2018 pressing is AWESOME and so is the Sound, ...and the 1991 sort of muddled... you have all the luck in the world....you have a copy you can listen to and a copy to keep as a sure investment. A 20/20 copy of this gem is now far past the $200 mark my friend. Well into the $350-400 zone ! Check again.
  • CONVERSE
Check your inbox mate we might both be in luck.....
  • Made-with-Love
So glad I pre-ordered this. It sounds great but it's much different from every other master. The CD versions are still relevant.
  • Alexandra
I've heard this album about 10,000 times.. But not like this. Not on vinyl. Not on Shields' remastered version.. Layers upon layers upon layers.. Just incredible.
  • Celore
the cover looks a bit oversaturated to me for some reason. Like it's too bright or something
  • Eyalanev
A pristine pressing that cleans up the equalization of the original, resulting in sharper separation, chunky textures and fiery distortion - giving it all a very organic, vibrant and otherworldly feeling. Turned up, the distortion positively sears through the air and the low end is deep and cavernous. Perhaps it may not "sound" as volatile and murky as the original pressing, nevertheless this is probably the most faithfully updated remaster of this seminal, always-talked-about-in-some-way album. A dynamic pressing with an extended loop ending of "I Only Said".
  • Mayno
Damn it seems like the 2018 remaster sold like hotcakes on both Discogs and the MBV website. I'm glad I bought mine, it really does sound great, I just wish I could've bought an extra one for archive purposes.
  • Moralsa
me too. i am kicking myself in the butt for not buying two of this and two of isn't anything...although, i did get a copy of the test press for isn't anything when i got my shipment of these two albums which was nice.
  • Dianazius
Somebody on here commented that I have $150 plastic discs for sale, as if I'm gatekeeping how the second-hand market should operate, but then it looks like they promptly deleted their comment, hopefully because they realized how stupid they would look starting an argument like this was a YouTube comment section. Let me make this perfectly clear - anything I have ever sold has been from my personal collection because I bought it with the intention of keeping it and it didn't work out. I have a whopping 13 items for sale - does that sound like the M.O. of a flipper? If I have anything for sale at a high price it's because it's been LOOONG out of print and I DON'T WANT to sell it (the opposite of capitalizing off a recent scarcity), but if someone wants to offer me that kind of money than it would be stupid of me to turn that down.
  • Ceck
I think it was limited much like isn't anything....it'll probably get reissued again. They probably wanted to test the waters to see if interest still existed.
  • Shalinrad
Don't give in, metaphoria. If you buy from a flipper you're only justifying their obnoxious tactics. As important as this album is to me personally, I'd rather go to my grave having never heard it on vinyl than pay $150+ for a plastic disc.
  • interactive man
I'm in the exact same boat, DigitalZombie. I'm crushed. I was hoping to pick up a copy when I saw them live but the merch table wasn't selling any records. I was worried this could have been a limited release, but considering the demand and how long it had been in stock, I assumed it wasn't.I came so close to just biting the bullet many times, but my financial situation is less than stellar, so I kept putting it off. Of course, with scalpers selling copies for $200+ the shipping price doesn't seem so bad in hindsight. Now all we can do is hope for a repress, I suppose...sigh.
  • Oghmaghma
Was there any mention of this being a limited release?! I was checking in on their website every few weeks to see if the exorbitant shipping price came down and now they're sold out?! No U.S. retail release like the "m b v" album?
  • Risky Strong Dromedary
Quite simply the best album ever written by anyone ever beautifully pressed onto, what is currently, reasonably priced wax.
  • Landarn
I take back what i said about reasonably priced. .
  • ndup
Great sounding pressing! Good luck getting the record back inside the gatefold though, it's very tight
  • Zovaithug
Just wanted to chime in and say this pressing is fabulous. But I also love the original CD, so you're not missing THAT much if you don't have this - it was a very dynamic master all around.
  • Deorro
After 5 months or so in transit (to Brazil), it finally came to me. Mastering is excellent, every detail is intact. At the time I ordered it, I didn't pay for shipping as much as everyone else for some reason ($13 shipping), but in any way this is worth having.
  • virus
I grabbed a second copy at a record store today. The first one I bought it directly from the website. I can assure both copies were in great shape, very silent pressing and the sound quality is amazing. I own the original pressing and this is slightly better. Can't wait for the 2xLP 45RPM edition. Yes, I'm a total MBV nerd.
  • Brakree
2xLP 45RPM edition ??? where, when, how? really? I miss some news?
  • Мох
Is there any way to get this record without paying $25 for shipping? Or from anywhere else? Good lord is that ridiculous. Or just wait out for the 45rpm Kevin said is being worked on?
  • Manesenci
I'm not aware of another way. I found "Isn't Anything" at Amoeba Records in Hollywood, but it was priced to account for the added shipping cost (I paid $45). An employee said they hadn't seen the "Loveless" version and didn't anticipate getting more in, so I'm not sure how many shops will carry it. I just bit the bullet and ordered "Loveless" directly from MBV because I couldn't wait.
  • Burking
I have too have to confirm that this version sounds incredible, not a single issue with the album, the only exception being that it's basically a $50 record almost by default, I recommend buying from another seller if you're in a hurry to get your hands on it otherwise be expected to wait.
  • Hamrl
It's amazing. Beautiful jacket and nice heavy weight pressing, best I've heard the album.
  • Doriel
I finally got it and I must say this is a must have record. Everything sounds more clear and better mixed than the CDs I have. There's also more dynamics, whatever that means lol, but yeah this record sounds better than I have heard anywhere else before. I am proud to have this specific record pressing in my collection, don't take my word for it though, listen to it with your own ears, BUY IT!
  • Mr_KiLLaURa
Awesome sound!!!You don't need to buy the original DMM etched vinyl at ridiculous price.
  • Kuve
Took a lot longer than expected to arrive to México, after the mail lost my records but now that I have with them I can say you won't regret, great reissue edition with great quality sleeve and excellent vinyl weight. Go and grab yours!
  • Tolrajas
Cuanto tiempo te tardó en llegar? Yo lo pedí a mediados de febrero y aun no me llega, igual estoy en México
  • Modred
Absolutely superb. Worth the wait (if you can believe that). I've got an original Creation (very good), Plain (the less said the better) and this, and this is the best.
  • VizoRRR
So finally got my hands on a copy after weeks of waiting as to be expected from MBV, it does sound incredible the best I have heard not one pop or crackle and well worth the wait.
  • Mikarr
Received mine (in the netherlands) after 1,5 months. Worth the wait though. Sounds amazing. And now i can throw away the crappy bootleg ive owned for years.
  • Oppebro
Wanted to post on here and see if anyone else is having surface pop issues with their cut. Mine is pretty thoroughly pop-and-crackly, particularly on Loomer and Sometimes.
  • Bu
Not me. Have you cleaned your copy? Even new, mint vinyl can use a good cleaning.
  • Aradwyn
11/10, one of my favorite albums of all time, kicks the shit out of my bootleg Japanese pressing and in the end that’s all that matters to me
  • Kann
Arrived several days ago. Everything is perfect except one point. As the gatefold sleeve is very thick and hard, not enough space is left for the vinyl record. I find it quite difficult to return the vinyl back inside the gatefold sleeve. The original inner sleeve may also be easily broken as a result.
  • Undeyn
finally got mine! i know it was originally issued on one disc, but at 48 minutes, and while he was messing around with the segues anyway, he should've found a way to split it to (at least) 3 sides. or, even better, 4 sides at 45 rpm. this one sounds good (better than the plain reissue i have, for sure), but going to 4 sides/45 rpm would mean mastering it MUCH louder, which is how this is supposed to be played.
  • Zulkishicage
of course there is. there goes another $20 shipping charge.
  • Yramede
Apparently there is a second version (2x45 LP) in the works, according to Shields.
  • Voodoogore
but when it’s mastered so quietly, turning the amp up loud also turns any surface noise up loud and can cause feedback in some situations.
  • Steel balls
Disagree. Amps have a volume knob for this reason. We don't need brickwalled vinyl
  • Gralsa
i was just doing an a/b test between the plain 2003 reissue and this new one. the plain is a little louder with a little more high end. here's a weird discovery: either the plain is (very slightly) sped up or the new reissue is (very slightly) slowed down. they tended to drift after not very much time. of course, overall, the 2018 reissue sounds better to me.
  • Anarahuginn
Just arrived today! Have wanted to own this on vinyl forever. Sounds great. Mastering this must have been a real task.
  • Frey
I just got my copies today Loveless,Isn't Anything and alternate "Isn't Anything" I also live in the L.A. area. Very well done LP's
  • Shakanos
Anyone on the west coast still waiting for their pre-order copies? Still no signs of mine...
  • Pemand
I finally received mine today on 2/24. Napa, CA
  • Sarin
I'm in the bay as well and nothing today - still (im)patiently waiting..
  • Xaluenk
I still have not received my copies yet in Californi-way...
  • NI_Rak
Beautiful pressing! Couldn't be happier with it, everything sounds so crisp and how its meant to be heard, hopefully more bands take their vinyl cues from MBV in the future... CSH have already seemed to with TF
  • Kearanny
So good, I ordered another copy! And I suggest you order at least one from the official website while you still can!Analog Mastering FTW. More vinyl reissuers/RM should take note: this is how it's done.[note: My copy came with a weird 'jizzm stain' on 2 of the last tracks on one side IF YOU REALLY INSPECT THE SURFACE UNDER THE LIGHT, but does not affect play or audio.]
  • Perilanim
Sounds amazing. Seller's are taking the pi$$ listing this for £50+. As of middle of Feb2018 you can still buy direct from MBV website for £27 including postage. (UK postage that is). Honestly it's getting worse than ticket touts on here these days.
  • Ienekan
I got mine on valentine's day ;) Apart from lack of polyline inner sleeve (it should be mandatory) absolutely flawless reissue. Good job!
  • you secret
The printed inner sleeve has a poly inner surface so it should be the same.
  • HeonIc
Did yours not come with one? Mine did. I thought it looked like a cheap paper sleeve but it was indeed lined!
  • BOND
I got mine just about a week ago. I ordered in October also. But it sounds great! Worth the wait.
  • Humin
Finally the wait is over and I can listen to this long-awaited analog version of Loveless. I have listened to the original vinyl hundreds of times and I think this new edition offers great improvements. Do not get me wrong, I love the DMM townhouse pressing but I think that in general terms this version has a better sound. The original edition has a special magic and for me it is still the reference point to listen to the album with its original sound aesthetic (thin drum sound with swirling-cottony guitars floating above and whispered high-pitched vocals.). In this version the "mid-rangy" live sound of the band is represented more faithfully, the guitars sound overwhelming and although the percussion and the bass are still overshadowed by the guitar, the general sound is warmer and with more depth. Surprisingly the vocals feel very present and Bilinda's sweet airy voice particulary stands out throughout the album. Side A sounds very raw. "Only Shallow" hits you in the face with a new wilder sound full of guitar overtones. "To here knows when" sounds more intense than ever, it seems that the song is about to "break" at every moment. Side B is significantly superior to the original edition. "Come in alone", "What you want" and "Blown a wish" acquire a new dimension that was not present before in any edition I've heard of Loveless. The sound on those songs is truly amazing. "Soon" is much better equalized than the original, the kick drum and bass are louder and the vocals sound really good. About the pressing it's overall quiet with very few ocassional crackles, really good quality. The packaging is beautiful and much better than the original. About the costumer service I only have good things to say. The shipping was very fast and the online support very kind. Congratulations MBV. Great job!
  • Dalarin
Got my copy of Loveless and Isn't Anything on 2/14. They both sound incredible and are far better than the shitty Plain reissues. I've never heard the originals but as far as I'm concerned, these are the definitive copies of both albums.
  • Kipabi
Got my copy today (Valentine's Day!) in Portland, Oregon. I couldn't be happier with this LP. The packaging is fantastic and the body of sound is superb. Having heard the first pressing, I can opine that this pressing is noticably different, though not in any kind of way that is worth complaining about. Mostly, the first pressing is just louder. But this pressing has a fuller body. More highs, more lows, more mids, more clarity and separation. Yes, you'll need to turn it up a little more than perhaps some of your other records, but I think that is a small price to pay. This record, even if purchased from one of the sellers on discogs who are charging an exorbitant $100+ without shipping (for M/M-), you'll still get a better record than the OG pressing for $150+ without shipping (for VG or worse).
  • Detenta
Cash grab by Mr Shields. Don’t blame him though, Market is hot and with a couple words you can convince all these folks to buy an iconic album that doesn’t require much due to the wall of haze. As if the analogue tapes would make a difference from the 4th gen digital master.
  • BlessСhild
Nothing wrong with a cash grab these days. I don’t blame him at all. MBV were all but ignored back in the 90’s.
  • Cordantrius
Fam I'm just trying to get to the source material as possible along with supporting My Bloody Valentine.
  • Walan
The dude spends 2 years and a lot of money remastering a long out of print record - how is this a cash grab again?I now no longer have to pay a second hand seller crazy money for it - how is this bad?
  • Utchanat

  • Connorise
Nonsense, this and the first album were out of print no cash grab.
  • Thordibandis
perfect pressing of one of my all time favourite records! though I have an original Creation pressing too, it's vg+ state makes the all analoge reissue a pleasure to listen too. no tick, no pop, no surface noise or igd. it's just...perfect. Tempted to order another one to keep it sealed for the shoegazing kids of the future ;)
  • Aria
If I could choose betwwen an nm to ex CRELP 060 "Loveless" from 1991 and the the new, shrinkwrapped all-analogue-remaster, I would still choose the original. Simply because it's the historically correct version. In terms of Dynamics, the DAT-sourced and DMM mastered Townhouse cut (a very digital first pressing this was) WINS. The room is filled when I play the creation lp on my system, whereas on the new All-Analogue-Remaster, the sound presents itself more like a trippy stage in front of me. HOWEVER, in terms of "better sounding", I would go with the new All-Analogue Mix. Kevin Shields repainted his masterpiece. It was always a thing of beaty, but the "beaty"reallly shines on the new vinyl. So, to answer your question: No and yes - less dynamic, but better sounding!
  • Cogelv
Do you have an original to compare it to? Other than the ticks of probably a 1st press would you say the new is more dynamic and better sounding?
  • Qulcelat
Arrived yesterday in Washington state. Absolutely perfect! Those complaining about a flat/lifeless sound, I suggest playing with your receiver because I experienced none of that. Minimal surface noise, probably a bit of debris I didn't pick up with the brush. Super warm mix. Packaging is heavy,almost like the consistency of a children's book. I feel bad for  dumaisaudio because someone had to beat that box up to dent this packaging. Gatefold obviously not necessary due to being a single LP but it is nicely designed. Definitely buy the record if you get the chance, they're still selling for about $20 on the http://mybloodyvalentine.org/
  • Granigrinn
Mine made it to Colorado yesterday. It sounds fantastic and the packaging is gorgeous. Don't buy it on here for $100 though; they're not even sold out on the website. Of course if you want to get a copy sometime before 2025, you might consider it, since they're clearly being delivered at the band's leisure! :-P
  • Naril
incredible audio and pressing quality, nothing more to say about the masterpiece.
  • Kigabar
According to an interview with Kevin Shields in the latest issue of Uncut magazine, there will be yet ANOTHER version of Loveless released at some point. Double vinyl 45rpm set.

I dropped the needle on this long awaited "analog remaster" and within the first 30 seconds, I was smiling ear to ear. This remaster has offered the world a "version" of Loveless (a favorite lp for many) that has mid range definition, weight, and balanced highs and lows. The instruments and their processing is clearly articulated, defined, and honestly interpreted to the vinyl disk. This is a distilled representation of a sonic masterpiece, that for many of us listeners holds a special place in our hearts and minds of nostalgia. If you like this album, then you want this pressing. I will say that my copy arrived with some aberrations to the vinyl, and they are audible. :(

Mine came just today (Czech republic). Superb packaging. Reminds me my old US pressings with heavy "cardboard" sleeve. Really great. I'm curious to know how it sounds. Looking forward to weekend.

3/4 of the hour of pleasure. Wondeful pressing. So warm, airy and spacious. I did not hear original pressing... and after i heard this one i do not want to anymore. Really awesome job Kevin. I'm so grateful... Thanks mate

I'm also from Poland and my tracking information indicates Spain as the sender's country. Strange.
  • Broadraven

The packaging for this release is absolutely spectacular. The vinyl sounds great as well. I don’t understand what some of the fuss is about although maybe there are a couple of lemons out there. I’m listening with a Sumiko Bluepoint EVO III on a Pro-Ject Perspex, which really opens this album up. Zero warp on mine. Reminds me of their 2013 release, which came out spectacular as well.

I guess I was expecting a bit too much from this new master. Although the packaging is fantastic, the vinyl flat and dead silent I miss the analogue sound from the original first pressing. The seperation of instruments is a bit different but which you prefer is just a matter of taste.Still this release is perfect in comparrison to all other rereleases and a perfect option if you haven't the money for an original.
  • Manemanu
From my experience Direct Metal Mastering has had a tendency to sound harsh & digital.
  • Gann
dear pier71, the original vinyl pressing of Loveless was sourced from a DAT tape and then pressed via DMM (Direct Metal Mastering). The "original first pressing" was an all-in-all digital affair pressed on wax to begin with. I must know, as I own a Creation first pressing myself. While the seperation of instruments is indeed different on the new all-analogue-remaster, this has nothing to do with it.

The original was not 100% analog. The entire point of this release is that it is. They painstakingly recreated all of the digital transitions on tape. There's a really great interview with KS online about the process. He also mentions that in the future, he will likely do a halfspeed 2xLP version. Knowing KS, we'll have that in 10 years.
  • Huston
DogsCollection I thought this one is a true analog cut while the originals were cut from digital audio tape? You are correct. The first pressing is not 100% analog.

Got mine in. Sounds great but the vinyl is slightly warped, bit of a shame.
  • Xisyaco
Can anyone give some pressing/cover details (review) of this German pressing? Does it include the innersleeve? How does it compare to U.K. DMM pressing?
  • Eseve
I feel it has a bit less treble sheen compared to the UK pressing...it sounds a little warmer but not muddied. Truth is I feel this German pressing is the ultimate vinyl version.
  • Acebiolane
Thanks for the detailed reply. I have the DMM pressing, but was thinking of getting this one too as the A-side is pressed a bit off centre, creating slight pitch wow. I guess I'd keep them both.
  • Shaktiktilar
I have this pressing. The cover is identical to the UK and it does include the same inner sleeve although with a slight difference in the letter's font. The vinyl is thinner than the UK press, but sound quality is excellent, nothing to envy to the UK DMM. Aparently it was not pressed with DMM technology so it doesn't have the metallic quality on the high frequencies , it sounds smoother . It is a really good pressing... Best wishes !

From where comes the title of this keystone of art rock?KS would certainly never deliver the secret, so we have to interpret."home is where heart is" so love= home ;Loveless could mean homeless, like KS was living, jumping from a studio to another, while recording, without home.But naming homeless a record would not be really easy to support...And homeless is really a quality of this record: never one like that before, never another like that after...To your clever mind...
