Product Description

Reissued and remastered for superior sound of their 1985 album which Rolling Stone selected as #268 on their list of 'The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time'. Founded and led by brothers William and Jim Reid, guitarists and vocalists both, these Glasgow-based post-punk icons changed the course of Alt-Rock with their bold Velvet Underground-meets-Brian Wilson sound. Atmospherically dense, the Mary Chain was equal parts white noise and sweet pop-accessible and revolutionary-and they've never sounded better. The album includes the singles "Never Understand", "You Trip Me Up" and "Just Like Honey". The song "Just Like Honey" was featured on the soundtrack of the film Lost in Translation (2003).

By Pieter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Oct. 1 2006
Format: Audio CD
Inspired by The Velvet Underground and perhaps The Cure, The J&M Chain made feedback and distortion an integral part of their wall of sound, creating a unique and distinctive niche in rock music. It was in the way they did it - the distortion never sounds intrusive or discordant but instead complements the detached vocals for a cohesive music of eerie beauty. In this crucial way the music differs from most of the output of the industrial genre, in that it has a flowing, hypnotic quality. My favorite tracks on this seminal album include Just Like Honey, The Living End, The Hardest Walk, Sowing Seeds, My Little Underground and the sublime You Trip Me Up, a poignant blend of the tender and the ominous. Psychocandy is a successful experiment in blending feedback with melody, creating atmospheric but always tuneful soundscapes that linger in the mind.

Lou Reed passed away recently and the Velvet Underground's White Light / White Heat is set for a deluxe package with bonus material. It seems fitting that one returns to the Scottish brothers Reid and their take on the Velvets meet the Beach Boys. There continues to be something classic and pure pop about Psychocandy after all these years. Again the deluxe package with two CDs and live / promo vids on the DVD is a must own for anyone that was obsessed with the JAMC's debut release. It does not disappoint as it recalls a bygone era yet feels timeless just like VU.

Maybe I'm not the right person to write a review of this selection but... Theres definitely a tip of the hat to the Velvet Underground here which would be a good thing had there not been a sharp biting edgy swath of high pitched guitar distortion deliberately thrown into just about every tune. Maybe on younger ears this would just be ambient noise but to mine I left a listening session @ moderate levels in discomfort. The songs are good but not good enough to warrant permanent hearing loss! So aside from picking out a tune or two for a mix that has less of this noise or listening @ low levels this disc regretably won't see much action.
