The best JMC album,
This review is from: Stoned & Dethroned (Audio CD)
I'm not much of a fan of the JMC in the 80s, finding that most of itsuffered from incredibly low production values and tinny feedback. To me,Honey's Dead, Stoned and Dethroned, Munki and Automatic are the JMCmust-haves. S&D stands out in that all of the songs are faultless - laidback, cool, fantastic lyrics. Favourite tracks - God Help Me, You've BeenA Friend, These Days, Feeling Lucky. The CD artwork reflects themelancholic but uplifting feel of this album. Particularly good whendriving with all the windows down (pretending you have a soft top) on asummer's day.

I'm sure you'd agree that your opinion that this is their best album is a minority view. Most would rate Psychocandy as the Mary Chain's finest - that is what they will be remembered for. Stoned & Dethroned is fine, don't get me wrong, but it wasn't influential or life-changing like Psychocandy was.
