Cordabor
Treat this like it's your newborn son. I don't care if you have to wrap it in a blanket and change its diaper or lock it away in a safe to never play it. This record is a gift from the gaze gods and every copy should be safe and sound in the collection of a true enthusiast in music. What you have here is a milestone in the development of shoegaze and music itself.
From the ear-snatching growl and snatch of the first few chords in track 1, Loveless is that first love that guides you through the steps into (ironically) falling in love. Step by step. Through walls of guitar distortion and faded vocals, this album takes control of your most tucked away emotions and insecurities and lets them blossom into the beautiful things that make your emotional complex uniquely you.
Through and throughout, this album is a diamond in the rough of a grunge-growing, disposition-fueled time in music, and provides the listener with an escape into the simple beauty that is love in its every form.
Being a collector, I find the most beautiful part in a first pressing is the connection with a generation and hearing what those of an aging generation first heard, and with this record pressing in particular, one can not only hear the emotional impact within themself, but within a generation living in a time of monumental change in music. With all said and done, you will not be disappointed in this Rembrandt of a 90s record.
Dilmal
Can anyone give some pressing/cover details (review) of this Australian pressing? How does it compare to U.K. DMM pressing?
Breder
Although the way to my turntable was not easy, my patience was repaid. This is a true gem in my collection. Thanks Kevin..not words, play it and close your eyes..;)
Samugul
Tennessee American here, just got mine today. A little crackly in the quiet parts but once music kicks in it's loud and perfect. Also a tiny tiny tiny bit warped but doesn't affect anything (pitch bending is literally one of the ingredients that made the album sound how it sounds so i don't think a badly warped copy would really affect it?). Can't speak on the sound of an original pressing or a comparison but overall very impressed and happy with this one.
Ger
I have two original Creation presses, that awful Plain pressing, the interesting German bootleg, and now the (presumably) definitive version on the way. For better or worse, each pressing seems to offer something different. I'm going to keep them all and do some comparisons once the represses arrive. Might make a video about it too. Ah, I am so excited!
Ucantia
Would you ever be willing to sell one of your original pressings? Christmas is coming up and my boyfriend is a huge music fiend who has always dreams of owning an original pressing. I really want to get him one for Christmas, but it is so difficult to find ones that are not scams or way too expensive for me to even look at.
Thordigda
One of the original presses has slight surface noise between songs. The other copy I have is pristine – very clean and no surface noise, seems to have been an archive copy before I purchased it.
Kegal
Do your copies of the original Creation have any surface noise between songs / during the transitions?
Zicelik
this record is just okay..its not great at all, ill never understand the hype of my bloody valentine..
Whiteseeker
To everyone that is waiting for a reissue. Just ask yourself. Are you a true record collector or a hipster? A true record collector would want a 1st pressing of this classic and not settle for a reissue. I can tell you that this is the 1st press to own. The U.K. Creation townhouse dmm is where it's at. Hold out for a nice copy at $150 to $200. It's worth the extra $ difference to own the 1st press. If not, then just stream it or buy the cd. No need to buy any reissues.
Geny
Whoa! I take it that you are your own collector then. Pigeon hole yourself, not others please.A true hipster or a true collector, it doesn't matter...They are both the same. Don't care what other people think. Just buy the best copy available, it's for nobody else but you and don't care if it's a repressing so long as it's a good one.If I was to fit in to your categories I'd not be a happy bunny.
Risky Strong Dromedary
Ha ha ha ha. You may want to delete the original comment...the reissue blows the original away. I don't think you actually listen to the reissues you just badmouth them because the value of your original pressings goes down...it should be about the quality of the music.
Mr Freeman
Guess what happens to the value of my repress once its been looked after by me for the next 20 years or so...Thats right, some represses gain a dedicated following (and value rising accordingly) themselves.I could never afford a mint original LedZep II, but my MoFi 80's press blows my mind every time I spin it, at a tenth of the cost..
Tyler Is Not Here
The 2018 reissue is fantastic. End of story. I own both an original Creation pressing which I bought ten years ago when the price wasn't insane and the new one. They both sound great, but in different ways. That's the nuanced thing about this medium. A fantastic-sounding copy of this incredible album can be had for about thirty bucks plus shipping directly from the band's website. Now that I've heard both, and if I didn't already own the original, there is no WAY I'd spend $120 or more in addition to what the reissue costs just to be able to say "Well, THIS is an original CREATION pressing" when my friends come by. That's pretty much all that money's getting you.The whole point of this hobby is to have music that sounds good and the reissue does. End of story. Just avoid the Plain Records version, it is definitely rubbish. "A true record collector..." Give me a break. At the time of your post, the thing was not even completed so you couldn't possibly have heard it. I'll take the Pepsi Challenge with your original Creation pressing because I have done already, and the reissue is superb. To anyone debating what to do with regards to this album, my advice is to save your money and buy the reissue while you can, and give the band your money instead. You won't regret it.
Akir
No need to buy any reissues because you've personally heard it, and know that it's not worth bothering? Not every record collector has $150 to throw down on one album. How's the view from up there on your high horse?
tref
You are a prime example of why people hate audiophiles.
Runeshaper
I'd rather wait for a good quality reissue directly cut from the original half inch tapes than paying for an overpriced first press that was cut from a DAT.
Skiletus
The requirement for being a record collector is to collect records. By stating "if you want to be a TRUE record collector, you have to want to get x thing" you're technically a hipster, yo
Brightcaster
Thing is that the reissue is getting remastered by Kevin Shields himself at Abbey Road, so the quality should be nothing but amazing. Also, not everyone can or want to afford $150 just like that to get a VG copy with dents and creases on the cover. Let people do what they please instead of acting like a "trve audiophile".
Malara

Cordabor
Is there a vinyl pressing anywhere that doesn't screw over the buyer? I know the Plain version released in the U.S. is crap, but was hoping for better from Creation, but I'm seeing bad ratings/reviews for that (unofficial) Creation U.S. version too. Are the pressings in the rest of the world by Creation, anyone, good? Thanks, please advise.
SmEsH
They're probably going to release a vinyl remaster this year. At least, probably this year.
Saithi
I've had my Creation vinyl edition since 1995. The album truly is one of the best recordings ever. It's the king of all shoegaze albums never to be taken off the throne!
The Apotheoses of Lacspor
To clear up the confusion over the Townhouse/MPO issue.MPO pressed both glider and Tremolo ep's (in the 12 months or so previous to Loveless). An initial run of Loveless was pressed at MPO in France, before the switch to Townhouse in the UK (made using a second master) - this master then ran its course at which point the MPO master which still had some life in it after the initial run was used to press up the rest back in the UK. simples.so the actual first run is MPO (those not crossed out)then the switch to Townsend shortly after.then the switch back to the MPO master but this time with the MPO crossed out and UK labels attached to back of sleeve.
Ballalune
Great info here, but is this first hand knowledge? How do you know all of this?
Barit
In music forums many people reported having bought Townhouse on the day of release, also MPO, but more commonly Townhouse. Most owners of MPO-crossed out pressing reported having bought it in the late nineties as a UK import, more frequently in Japan and US . There are no Japanese or American original pressings of the album, so it is likely MPO crossed-out was made to meet demand on those countries, not sure if a repress in exact terms. Your theory about MPO being earlier is not entirely ruled out, but there is no official information that confirms it. I asked directly to the label and they answered "everything with CRELP06 written on it is official" but they didn't know themselves which pressing was first. So far the facts are Townhouse was made in the UK while MPO was made in France (although labeled as "made in England " on sleeve , same as the CD). Since both were available on the day of release ,chances are they were simultaneous first issues. Anyway, the discussion will continue until official information comes to the surface. As to which pressing is "better" I personally prefer DMM because it has better dynamic range which I have checked myself when ripping both.The DMM cut gives the album a special tonality which is not present on the CD. MPO is closer to the CD. So if investing on an original copy I would recommend Townhouse for a more exciting vinyl sound . That opinion is based on personal taste, of course. Cheers !
Voodoolkree
well of course because you have the Townhouse vinyl you want to believe this. The MPO pressing was for all of Europe (UK included) - demand being high for the record and production back-log at MPO led to a quick (but not rushed) pressing at Townhouse (which is probably the rarer pressing) to fulfil UK demand (most likely based on pre-orders from UK record stores exceeding estimate). All previous singles (tremolo , glider etc) were pressed at MPO. the move to Townhouse was to fulfil unexpected demand. I wouldn't use the term re-issue in context with any of the 1991 issues because production was continual to a point, even the MPO crossed out is just the MPO template cut in the UK at Townhouse. I bought my copy on day of release - it is MPO. I later bought another copy (secondhand) it is the Townhouse. do they sound different - very slightly. MPO is warmer, Townhouse a bit brighter. is one better ? depends on your ears.
Sti
Everything you mention is right, except Townhouse is first UK pressing (I bought it second hand and the seller said he bought it on the day of release). Townhouse is UK original issue and MPO is french original issue (simultaneous first pressings). The UK CD was actually made in France (matrix CRECD 060 MPO 02) and the MPO vinyl , which is a lacquer cut, sounds very similar to the CD master (warmer/brighter sound, more pleasant to the ear). Townhouse is a DMM cut, that's why it sounds sharper and edgier. In my opinion Townhouse is the best pressing if you want "the full vinyl experience". As you said, MPO (crossed out) is a legitimate reissue using the MPO master and probably pressed somewhere in the UK because of UK labels attached to back of sleeve .
Lucam
Ha! Just realised that the 2nd side of my orig press is slightly off centre. The resulting woozy swaying sound makes no difference at all to this one!
Nekora
Original CD and Vinyl issues have different mixes btw. Vocals are louder on CD for instance.
Hugifyn
There is also a French pressing. Pressed  mpo. This may explain the alternate U.K.press w/scratched out MPO in dead wax.. It is exact to this press except it has a Made In France sticker instead of Made In U.K.sticker on back of sleeve. It is my opinion that the MPO pressing,French or U.K. is aurally far superior to the Townhouse mastered pressing . The Townhouse mastered press has more than an inch in dead wax. Whereas the MPO pressing has only about a 1/2 inch of dead wax. There is no indication where the MPO presing was actually mastered at. I assume if it was  townhouse it would indicate this in the dead wax. Anybody else have an opinion on this?
Roru
see my comment above. you're on the right track.the french MPO master made its way back to UK and was used again after the Townsend master had run its course - but this time with MPO crossed out. 1st run MPO uncrossed out. 2nd run Townsend. 3rd run MPO crossed out.but hey they are all original issue release so its splitting hairs really.
Black_Hawk_Down
My copy says "Made in England" on sleeve and has scratchet out MPO in dead wax. Sounds similar to the EPs (glider, tremolo) and the Loveless CreCD ,all of which were made in France, so you're probably right.
I_LOVE_228
it's one of those records - that creates this special headspace where you wanna cry, laugh, smile, feel lust, innocence and nostalgia at the same time, in exact moment. absolute classic to my ears 'till i die
Wrathmaster
I have two 1991 original Creation pressings, the Plain pressing and that recent bootleg.. which actually sounds pretty good imo. The original creation pressing clearly sounds superior though, warping warbling beauty. Splash the cash and invest in a beautiful original pressing, it is worth it.
Yramede
The reissues are shit sound quality. Stick with the original DMM Townhouse vinyl pressing. Best sounding version, end of.
Tori Texer
How should i even put this? I don't want to sound like a melodrama cliché, but let me start from the beginning.It was right before the MBV release, when i saw some news about the rumor of the "long awaited" album (MBV). I wanted to know what it was about and looked up My bloody valentine on spotify...Ever since that, my music taste and library expanded into the world of shoegaze and early 90's rock. A journey only comparable to when i discovered the 60-70's in my early teens. This record alone...no exaggeration here... changed my life for better and worse. Music means alot to me and going around gazing to Loveless up to this day (yes i still listen to it alot) brings out another side of the world around you. It has made me melodramatic, depressed, just super happy, thankfully calm, angry ... this record is more like a real mind warping experience. Thank you! I love this record.
Nkeiy
Whats the difference between this release and this release---> http://www.discogs.com/My-Bloody-Valentine-Loveless/release/5242199I bought the copy in the link used in 1996 from Other Music. Any ideas on when it was released?
Cenneel
etching mpo copy is late issue.but sound is Good.jacket are different.mpo copy is Character is blurred.
Silverbrew
referencing Loveless, LP, Album, RE, Unofficial, crelp 060 I just bought the Loveless LP, Re Unofficial, crelp 060, and was happy to find it at a reasonable price and for this I was pleased. I am resigned to accepting whatever version I can get. Just sayin'...god forbid Kevin Shields got his act together and satisfied his fans by making it his business to get a proper reissue into the stores and made some decent money from his brilliant work. Ya' gotta love the tormented artist thing, but really, KEVIN get a clue, stop bad mouthing all the reissues and just get it done. This way you can satisfy the fans, and make some decent money from your work...how about that for a suggestion?...or am I relying too much on common sense? Just crazy talk...huh... BTW, having heard both the Plain and Sony versions, this is a better version in terms of the sound quality. If one's a stickler for packaging, by all means, plunk down stupid money for these versions (70 GBP to 150 USD). But for me, its about the sound quality...
Zyniam
I've just got this out the post today. I don't have anything to compare it to but it sounds ace to me for the cost... I love the album but I can't afford an original - sounds like it might have been mastered off cd. Depends if you plan to listen or Listen to it - would be fine for the first... Hope I've helped. I've done this wrong - how do i edit it to be about loveless?? I got mine from here - appeared to be the bootleg... http://www.discogs.com/seller/clarkster

I also bought a Creation UK pressing of Loveless around 1999 at Reckless in Chicago. Sounds OK to me but have often wondered how it ended up there eight years after it was initially pressed. I thought maybe some boxes showed up in a warehouse somewhere or something. How can I tell if it's an original 1991 pressing?
Cordaron
To check whether you have a 1991 pressing check the Barcode and other identifiers section of this page. If it doesn't match then it would be good to create a new entry with your version up a 1999 repress.
Dagdalas
I bought a Creation UK pressing of Loveless in 1999 at a London HMV. It definitely wasn't a 1991 pressing but I'm not sure how a bunch of these LP's ended up in the new vinyl section.My pressing sounded terrible whilst a 1991 pressing sounds great, probably THE version to own.Some feedback from Creation catalogue aficionados would be appreciated on this one. My pressing was on very thin and sharp vinyl and didn't feel like a usual Creation record. It could very well have been a bootleg, in which case avoid.
