Publisher's Summary

Loveless remains an enigma, 15 years after its release - an album so influential and groundbreaking that its chief creator, Kevin Shields, has been unable or unwilling to release an official follow-up. In his book, Mike McGonigal talks to all the members of My Bloody Valentine in an almost certainly futile attempt to get at the essence of this extraordinary record.

Told equally pre, mid, and post-Loveless

Mike McGonical is absolutely the right person to write this story, being equal parts in on the band before, friends of the band members, yet far away enough from it to not have a biased slant on the album. He paints the scene flawlessly, and this is the most concentrated source of information on the album in current existence.

Really, really bad

Horrible, self-regarding piece of writing. Next to nothing in terms of substantial information, loads of meandering subjective nonsense. And the narration: it would have helped if he'd checked how to pronounce names of people and places before recording it.

An all round disaster. Avoid.
