Jesus & Mary Chain - Darklands (1994) Retail CD
It is a rare band that ever recovers from releasing a genuinely classic and revolutionary debut album. The Jesus & Mary Chain succeeded with almost indecent ease, leaving their legion followers and assorted stragglers and chancers to pick at the carcass of Psychocandy while they busied themselves making an album that was, arguably, even better. Darklands saw the Mary Chain take the audacious step of abandoning their signature motif-feedback--which suggested that either they thought they'd made their point or had finally figured out how their amplifiers worked. Instead, they chose to make an issuemore… of the acute melodic sense that had underpinned the squalling racket of Psychocandy. Darklands boasted a bunch of tunes that Brian Wilson himself would have been delighted to have written (indeed, in "Cherry Came Too", it boasted at least one "Surfin' Safari", to be specific--that Brian Wilson already had written, but the Mary Chain have always had the sense to steal from the best). The two singles, "April Skies" and "Happy When It Rains" were both deservedly hailed as classics, and both served notice that Jim Reid was a fine rock & roll singer, possessed of an admirable laconic sneer. --Andrew Mueller
