An amazing record!!!! With the intense friction of their brotherly relationship paying huge dividends for the publics ears, even if their relationship suffered dramatically for a number of years as a result, you can hear the different and at times contradictory music each brother was listening to at the time, Jim with bits of psychedelic experimental punk rock with at times a hint of sixties feel in melody mixed with high energy rock'n'roll, William with a more contemporary nineties experimental indie feel with hints of spiritualized, my bloody valentine, spacemen 3 and even the melodic teenage fanclub on the Fantastic track "black", an album of emotional and deeply sensitive mixed with vitriolic bitter lyrics at times (this is a good thing in rock'n'roll), criminally underrated by the press at the time, who were busy sniffing round and getting excited over the beta band, gomez (really??), and delakota(really????), if you like inventive and experimental music with heartfelt endearing if at times bitter lyrics you must hear this record now, being Scottish I am fiercely proud of the mary chain one of the best and most underrated rock'n'roll bands around all time, if they came from London or America they would be far more appreciated by the mainstream music press, Jim and William I salute you and feel blessed for hearing your music and even more so for having attended your gigs, I LOVE/HATE ROCK'N'ROLL!!!!!
