Gazeblade's 33

List is in the title, 33 of my favorite albums from one of my favorite genres.
1My Bloody Valentine
Loveless


It's little surprise that Loveless is my favorite as it's also in my top 3-5 albums of any genre. The genres pinnacle imho tbqh. I'm gonna try to keep the MBV albums to a minimum on this list, but goddamit i love pretty much everything they put out.
2Alison's Halo
Eyedazzler 1992-1996


My second favorite gaze record. Everything about this album is just perfect. From the subtle, beautiful vocals to the uplifting guitar melodies just makes me sigh whenever I listen to this. Potential 5.
3Slowdive
Souvlaki
4lovesliescrushing
bloweyelashwish


The perfect blend of 2 of shoegaze and ambient; 2 of the best genres. Perfect album to sleep to.
5Lilys
In the Presence of Nothing


Seminal gaze album that is ridiculously overlooked.
6Pia Fraus
After Summer


Synthy gaze. One of the catchiest albums I've ever heard. I haven't been able to stop spinning it in the past few months...those synth melodies don't leave your head.
