Same as Cheeso says "Loveless" is one of the best albums of all time, it just happened to be released in the nineties, are we only allowed one choice?

"Loveless" would probably win my "Best Album Cover" and "Best Live Show" awards also. (Was lucky enough to see MBV at the old 9:30 Club right after Loveless came out. Stunning.)
Oddly enough, it was actually MBV that lead me to Stereolab. There was a guy named Mark Jenkins who used to write music reviews for the City Paper here in DC. He was so fixated with MBV that he found a way to mention them in every review he wrote (you'd have thought that they had somehow time-travelled and influenced Mozart, Coltrane, and the Beatles). In his review of "Mars Audiac Quintet", he wrote that Stereolab was yet another diciple of the My Bloody Valentine sound. I couldn't wait to hear the record. Turns out that it did not sound a damn thing like MBV to my ears, but I knew right away that I had found my new favorite band.
