The Jesus and Mary Chain - Psychocandy (FLAC)

The Jesus and Mary Chain's debut album, Psychocandy, remastered in FLAC. Adding pop melodies and monotone vocals, the Reids single-handedly (or double-handedly; think about it) reinvented rock music. With searing guitar textures and feedbacking, intuitive melodies and economic drumming, The Jesus and Mary Chain created a behemoth combination of two already enormous '80s music scenes: first wave noise rock, with its experimentalisms and extensive collages of fuzzed-up guitars, and Smiths-esque jangly pop, with its easily digestible sensibilities and bread-and-butter formatting. What came out of this was something completely unique, something like an unstable element, shedding noise and radiation in its wake, searching for that pop sound but falling just short, warped and disfigured.
