speaking of mbv
 
does loveless have the most boneheaded track sequence or what

TheMilstead 05-14-2008 06:38 PM

Elaborate, because so far I'm not agreeing with you.

wpc33 05-14-2008 09:48 PM

I assume you mean because it's pretty jumpy?
umm
Nah. It's charming. At least you can remember the different songs on the first listen with the distinctions. Aparrently, the fact that each track is a flowing scape doesn't make it a flowing album. It's more of a collection and you need to deal with it!!

TheMilstead 05-14-2008 10:03 PM

See, I actually think the album does flow as a whole. Maybe I've just listened to it too much, but I can't imagine Loomer not following Only Shallow, or Sometimes not following Come In Alone, or Soon not following What You Want, or When You Sleep not following To Here Knows When. Those particular transitions work awesomely to me.

redbreegull 05-14-2008 10:39 PM

I don't really agree either, I like the transitions.

redbull 05-15-2008 01:12 AM

i agree with redbull

mistle 05-15-2008 03:26 AM

what i mean is tracks three and four. 'touched' is alright 'cause it's short but 'to here knows when'? you don't put that shit back to back after two songs. you got all these nice pop songs and you completely break the momentum and put people to sleep after two songs. i don't mind much because i like weird music, but as a pop album that's just dumb. i know if i gave my sister the album to listen to she would get bored/annoyed and turn it off before getting to 'when you sleep'

I'm pretty sure anyone who would get bored because of the track sequence wouldn't get this band in the slightest to begin with.

mistle 05-15-2008 05:21 AM

if you get bored with metal machine music you don't get lou reed to begin with

TheMilstead 05-15-2008 08:49 AM

Yeah, uh, totally not the same thing at all.

ryan patrick 05-15-2008 09:16 AM

the problem is that the album gets more boring after the first 4 tracks, they should have put to here knows when later on the album so there was a reason to keep listening

ryan patrick 05-15-2008 09:17 AM

most of loveless is mediocre songs with amazing production

all the same it just means if it even belongs on the album it's not there

i prefer isn't anything anyway

ryan patrick 05-15-2008 09:37 AM

isn't anything is indeed superior. more variety, better songwriting, not quite the production level but still very impressive.

ryan patrick 05-15-2008 09:38 AM

loveless would have been better as a series of 12"s to break up the monotony.

ryan patrick 05-15-2008 09:40 AM

i mean tremolo and glider are both awesome

fluxequalsrad 05-15-2008 09:44 AM

Loveless is great... people go on about the production, but i just think its the guitar sounds he's getting - its not exactly a production master peice as the reputation suggests.

I don't really like 'I Only Said'

ryan patrick 05-15-2008 10:01 AM

the album also has keyboard parts, great drum mixing, bass parts, vocals. the guitar sound he gets on there is only really impressive by itself for moments of the whole album.

redbreegull 05-15-2008 02:20 PM

I like the end of the album better, from Sometimes onwards. And I prefer it to Isn't Anything.
