The Jesus and Mary Chain - Psychocandy (2000) Retail CD
Psychocandy, in most of the critics' circles, is hailed as something of a classic. While it is excellent, it is not the JAMC's best album. It's been noted as being probably the best debut album to come out (at least in the 80s), and I think that is definitely true, but the band DID get better. They improved their sound and expanded beyond the crunching white noise and the soft, ballad-like sounds that Psychocandy offered. (I felt like this album was bi-polar. One time, wild and insane, and the soft and melancholy.)
Still, people who critique it or compare the sounds of JAMC to My Bloody Valentinemore… and the Cure have it confused. JAMC INSPIRED Kevin Shields. Can't say the same about the Cure, but this album came out in 1985. Do the math, and study history. It helps (kind of like saying the Beatles learned from Led Zeppelin).
Also, remember: this was made 21 years ago. It has aged fairly well considering. Music from the 90s, and even within the last 10 years has not aged as successfully. That is one of the driving points of JAMC--their rock just seemed to be a bit ahead of its time.
I like the album, but I don't listen to is as much as, say, "Honey's Dead" or "Munki."
