THE JESUS AND MARY CHAIN / Honey's Dead (1992)

Finding just the right balance between their trademark feedback and some passionately delivered droning but catchy melodies helped the Mary Chain deliver an almost perfect album. The addition of live drums gives it a more organic sound than they ever had before. The only criticism you can throw at is the amount of repetition present. You can argue that it keeps the album firmly on track and the energy level high, but it's just as easy to call it lazy. Still, a great song is a great song, even if it does sound too much like another great song.
