My Bloody Valentine
When I first heard My Bloody Valentine’s infamous album “Loveless” 10 years ago, my mind was blown. I had never experienced music like that before. The way Kevin Shields produced and wrote this album is nothing short of astounding. He used methods that still can’t be figured out which further adds to the mystique of the album. From the ethereal vocals throughout to his tremolo bar strumming he creates the illusion of hundreds of guitars. This album is a masterpiece. “Loveless” has continued to influence me and how I play. It shows you don’t need to be complicated or over produced; musical inventiveness is all you need.
