"Loveless" by My Bloody Valentine
My Bloody Valentine "Loveless"  1991 (Ireland/UK)
When this album came out in 1991 (a few months before Nirvana launched the "alternative rock" revolution), it sounded like nothing that had come before it.  In one sense this album represents the culmination of the British "shoegazer" movement, although it really stands alone apart from any musical trend.  Legend has it that these songs were written and recorded very quickly, then the band spent nearly three years messing with the tapes to produce the uniquely blurry and out-of-focus sound of this record (spending half a million dollars and nearly bankrupting their record label in the process.)  Perhaps sensing they had a career-defining masterpiece on their hands, MBV has never followed up on this record, so it stands as their swan song.
