3.0 out of 5 stars good songs but dated production hasn't worn well, 12 Feb 2007
This review is from: Darklands (Audio CD)
As a big fan of JAMC from their early singles and first album Psychocandy, I was a bit taken aback by the very different production when this came out but soon won over by the songs. But 20 years later the very 80s production has not worn well at all, and the use of drum programs instead of a live drummer on much of the album was not a good choice. On top of which it's fair to say that to the unconverted Jim Reid is not going to sound like one of the world's great singers. So this is better (in song terms at least) than most of their subsequent albums, where their very limited subject matter had them running round in ever-decreasing circles. But it could badly use a remix, and it ain't a patch on Psychocandy, their only really lasting achievement.
