5.0 out of 5 stars the best kept secret in music., 21 Oct. 2002
This review is from: 21 Singles (Audio CD)
The Jesus and Mary Chain must be the most criminally overlooked bands of all time. Im not ashamed to admit that i didnt really take much notice of them. Id heard a couple of songs that i liked but until this best of came out had never dreamt of buying anything by them. Most of the people i know have heard of them but dont really know why. One listen to this collection and i was hooked. The first 5 songs are very raw but have such energy. The rest, while maintaining the edge develops into tunes of such quality that i cant believe the lack of recognition. BRMC are a poor imitation of the original. A band that have escaped my for years are now rarely off the stereo. I implore any music fan to buy this and not like it!!

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! The most exciting band of a very exciting time., 4 Mar. 2002
I've bought a lot of good albums of late and after buying the My Vitriol album i honestly didn't believe i would be able to buy anything as good for a long time. However i was wrong. Cooper Temple Clause sneaked quitely into my life and then very noisily blew me away. The very first line on the album goes "did you miss me? I bet you did" and all i can say is that this is the album i've being missing all of my life. Its hard to label this band with comparisons to others. You can go from incredible melodies to roaring guitars in the blink of an eye. "Film Maker" and "Been training dogs" epitomise the rip-roaring guitars, "The Lake" and "Murder song" are just glorious and the combination of melodies and almost punkish guitars on "Did you miss me?" is simply sublime. Yes this is an exciting time for British music, and nobody sums up this excitement more. This is the best album i have bought in a long time and i would emplore everybody to buy this album. You won't regret it!

5.0 out of 5 stars majestic, 4 Mar. 2002
This review is from: B.R.M.C. (Audio CD)
as an avid fan of the Verve, Jesus and Mary Chain, House of Love and in particular Ride, i was a little concerned at the prospect of BRMC being nothing more than a tribute band. What i got was a pleasant surprise. Yes the influences are obvious, but they develop these into a new fresh sound all of their own. They mix their House of Love vocals, Ride guitars and Jesus and Mary Chain "heaviness" to create an almost 60's psychedelia that would not of been out of place in the days when their influences were at their pomp. If you like the bands above, buy this album, lay back and enjoy, well worth a purchase.
