My Bloody Valentine – Loveless
I remember getting a copy of this and being so happy just to delve into this world of sound, and to get really stoned. The way the songs glide into each other, these in-between bits, are really amazing. It must have been such a struggle to mix it. It's all so blurry. Actually it can be really precise and really blurry, all at the same time. But to me it's also just a pop record, a brilliant collection of songs.
