I’m in a state… a real state.
The reason for this is the announcement this morning that Kevin Shields has nearly finished the long-awaited follow up to My Bloody Valentine’s 1991 Loveless LP. My feeling about MBV and Loveless have been covered on this blog before, so I expect you can imagine how eagerly I am anticipating the new LP (with an EP to follow next year!)
The thing is… will it be any good? Loveless was a great LP but wasn’t their best in my opinion. Will the new LP move back towards the more organic sounds of Isn’t Anything, or move across into more electronic territory? Or will it be an over-produced, more-of-the-same wash-out?
So I’m in a state, I’m excited beyond belief but braced for disappointment. Fingers crossed!
