Parkes of Worchester: Wrong on so many levels. The Mary Chain were (and still are) criminally overlooked for not sticking by the same Psychocandy formula and that review sums up this attitude to a tee. Much more than a retro album, this album oozes quality. The three singles speak for themselves but in every other track on the album, a lush beauty lies beneath the surface. Dark and soul searching, this isn't an album that will necassarily find your happy place. Each Mary Chain album has it's own sound, own mood, own attitude. This is one for those cold, wet September Sundays. Just try playing this at 5 in the morning, driving through half lit suburban streets.
