The Jesus and Mary Chain: Darklands (1987)
Hand in hand in a violent life
Making love on the edge of a knife
And the world comes tumbling down
Darklands is no Psychocandy redux. That's OK, since this is a very enjoyable record. I don't think that the band ever reclaimed the glory of the first LP, but there is nothing wrong with this record. I think the Allmusic review is spot on, so you can go and read it on your own time. There is just something about the sound of this band that is truly wonderful, to my ears at least.
