I actually am in the process of deciding whether or not I think that is true. They are both very good.

loveless may be better just because it's studied to the most subtle detail but Isn't anything just cuts it better for me...

I hate it when people pass stuff of as emo without hearing it. Not the emo is bad anyway (at least not bad because it is emo).

Start with Loveless.

If you are looking for songs then get:

Sometimes
Soon
Only Shallow
When You Sleep

Yes, "sometimes," and "when you sleep," are my personal favorites off of that album.

I was 14 also. I got Loveless in early January of 2006, and I turned 15 in late February.

Have any of you seen Lost in Trasnlation. "Sometimes" is used in it, and Kevin Shields does some music.

I had heard of them at 13, but never owned any albums or listened to any of them.

...I need to find a MBV shirt...

Well, MBV borrowed their name from a film, so I guess it's even. Also, the Lost in Translation soundtrack is amazing. Really works with the film.

I don't mind it when it is different media...

Like Xiu Xiu got their name from a movie, I'm cool with that. But when a band rips the name off of another band then I get annoyed.

that movie is pure genious! I think Kevin Shields was the guy in charge of the soundtrack.

Death in Vegas has an amazing song in that movie as well. I'd never thought i'd heard Death in Vegas play something so shoegazy ;_;

Oh, so he was in charge of it? Thats is cool. I still think Mark Motherbaugh is my favorite as far as soundtracks go (I believe he has done all of Wes Anderson's movies).

Yeah, I'm pretty sure he does them. Is 'Isn't Anything' worth the buy for a casual fan of Loveless?
