So yeah, one of those bands that started the genre of loud, noisy, cool, experimental stuff. But this was the 80s and 90s, and everyone was listening to Rick Astley, or whoever (how do I know, I'm not that old). So they didn’t make tons of cash.
Then they took a 10 year hiatus, came back, and released a new album a few years ago. Which critics loved, and fans loved, and I liked okay.
And Loveless, their first album, is their best album. Give it a chance or two, but if you don't like it you're not alone. I enjoy their stuff, but can't listen to them over and over like some bands. Still, there's nothing else like them if you're in the mood for it.
Sounds like: My Bloody Valentine.
Status: Legend. With a legendary break in between.
