In November of 1985, Scotland's THE JESUS AND MARY CHAIN released the now-classic Psychocandy LP. Fusing sweet pop / rock with a stripped down, raw buzzing production influenced by albums like White Light/White Heat by THE VELVET UNDERGROUND. Awash in epic feedback, distortion and noise. Every song is on a knife edge, as if it could collapse into an anarchic mess at any moment. Noise pop, proto-shoegaze; however you approach it the album is a monumentally minimalist classic.

Review

Arguably Psychocandy is an album with one trick and one trick alone - Beach Boys melodies meet Velvet Underground feedback and beats, all cranked up to ten and beyond, along with plenty of echo. However, what a trick it is. - 5/5
