Loveless is the second studio album by Irish rock band My Bloody
Valentine. It was released on 4 November 1991 in the United Kingdom by
Creation Records and in the United States by Sire Records. The album was
recorded between February 1989 and September 1991. The band cycled
through 19 different studios and several engineers during the album's
recording; one magazine estimated the production costs at close to
£250,000. Loveless peaked at number 24 on the UK Albums Chart, and was
widely praised by critics for its sonic innovations and the guitar work
of Kevin Shields (pictured). After the album's release, Creation owner
Alan McGee found Shields too difficult to work with and dropped the band
from the label. My Bloody Valentine struggled to record a follow-up to
the album and broke up in 1997. Loveless has been widely cited by
critics as one of the greatest albums of all time. In 2013, the album
was certified silver by the British Phonographic Industry.

Wikiquote quote of the day:
In the present stages of spiritual experience, the believer's
interior comfort, and his exterior lustre, greatly depend on the
position of his heart toward the uncreated sun of righteousness. How
obscure and benighted are our views, and how languid our exercise of
grace, when an unbelieving, a worldly, or a careless spirit, interrupts
our walk with God! But, if the out-goings of our souls are to him, and
if the in-pourings of his blessed influence be felt, we glow, we kindle,
we burn, we shine.
