Wording[edit]

In the first section the line: "The band's critical reputation far exceeds the limited success they experienced:" confuses me. Does the "limited success", as I think it does, refer to financial success? --chiefhoser 00:30, 23 August 2006 (UTC) Love is a french word, the orgin is louif which means egg. When a game like table tennis is played then this word is used most often.[Michael Swan] There are different aspects to consider the love.

NPOV check[edit]

What's your problem with the neutrality of the article Love (band)? Discussion page was blank. Thanks Jolomo 28 June 2005 17:11 (UTC)

(The above was copied from my Talk page, for my answering below.)

— Well, chronologically:

  • Someone else had previously elected this article for NPOV check, and thought it obvious enough to not justify it on the Talk page.
  • Then, someone else elected to replace the normal tag with a hidden HTML comment.
  • Then, when I recently copyedited this page, I put back the normal NPOV tag instead of the hidden HTML comment, as explained in my edit summary "{{NPOV}} instead of hidden comment", and as visible in the diff.

Now, of course, the reason why I replaced the hidden comment with the tag – instead of simply deleting it – was that I had, too, found the wording quite biased or fanboyish, without external sources/quotes/charts to back it up: "one of the finest 1960s albums", "beautifully melodic songs", "marred by a prolix side-long instrumental", "winsome yet twisted vocal style". One of those could maybe float, but all accumulated, that's a lot of POV for such a short section.

You're right I should have done the two previous guy's job and documented it on the talk page. Done ;-) ←#6  talk 1 July 2005 17:01 (UTC)

  • Sorry about that — should have read the history more carefully. Agreed, the authors have gone overboard, but to me the "winsome" quote (with a reference, too) captures his singing perfectly, but I aggree that the prolix line is a bit flowery. That album is typically listed as a top album of the 60's (I'll track down a reference), maybe line could be changed to "one of the most distinctive albums" of the 60's? It's certainly that. Thanks for your feedback. Jolomo

High Fidelity[edit]

Seems worth mentioning that the Love song "Always See Your Face" was on the High Fidelity soundtrack. Any other recent nods to the band? Their inclusion on the soundtrack doesn't seem quite enough for a section all of its own, but I wasn't sure where else to work it in. --Hurtstotouchfire 12:00, 20 January 2007 (UTC)

Pre Punk[edit]

Hi there - I'm no expert on the subject, but if someone could explain why Love is listed as Pre-Punk (i.e. was influential in some regard for its facilitation) that would be good, else it may not be listed correctly/be attributed wrongly? 159.121.168.133 13:43, 16 July 2007 (UTC)

The punk reference is usually mentioned in connection with their song "7 and 7 Is." Teo del Fuego —Preceding unsigned comment added by 174.16.159.8 (talk) 20:24, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

Arthur Lee = Don "No Soul" Simmons[edit]

you know it.

influence?[edit]

shouldn't the article talk about love's influence on later bands of much different musical style (punk, jesus and mary chain) as well as New Weird America —Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.125.110.223 (talk) 21:20, 15 January 2008 (UTC)


Merger proposal 2012-07-26[edit]

Per WP:Merging#Proposing a merger, I propose that 'Alban "Snoopy" Pfisterer' be merged into 'Love (band)'. I think that the content in the 'Alban "Snoopy" Pfisterer' article can easily be explained in the context of 'Love (band)', and the 'Love (band)' article is of a reasonable size that the merging of 'Alban "Snoopy" Pfisterer' will not cause any problems as far as article size or undue weight is concerned. →gab 24dot grab← 16:58, 26 July 2012 (UTC)
