can't recommend highly enough for all of you what or waffles members to get the 2003 vinyl remaster of loveless. it sounds heaps better than the original cd.
When it comes to my favorite albums -- or at least the ones that I consider Tier 1 -- I always download every version I can find and figure out which one I like the best. I am glad that I have the version that is mk approved. Despite my giving you lots of shit about your music smuggery (see: the Sick Thread dialog regarding Murphy's vocals on the mix of This is Happening
; see also: that I ****ing won that discussion; see further: blind squirrels, nuts), I generally trust your tastes with respect to music fidelity. I don't know much about mixing and mastering and engineering, but I usually know what I like, if not why. I can even be persuaded to change my mind if told what to look for. (On everyone else's behalf: hint, hint)

Yeah, "All I want" is the money track of that album. I'm starting to think "All I Want" > "All my Friends," though it would take a while to confirm such a thing.
My first reaction to "All My Friends" was very, very positive, but nothing compared to "All I Want." That song is in pretty select company, as far as first-listen-awesome goes -- "Airbag," "National Anthem" and "Reckoner" by Radiohead; "Immigrant Song" (the BBC recordings version) by Led Zeppelin; "Suicide" by Ghost Rider; "Only Shallow" by the aforementioned MBV; more that I can't name.
I mean, RAAAAAAWWWR!
