THE JESUS AND MARY CHAIN / Darklands (1987)

The brothers Reid turned off the feedback and gave us a gothic pop album with songs about detachment and of slowly sinking into the depths of hopeless romanticism.  The Beach Boys influence is still apparent but played much slower than before.  If you're in a place that needs this kind of music it's a perfect partner and eventual remedy for your situation.

Songs of Note: April Skies; About You
