Psychocandy (1985)

"Just Like Honey" Before there was My Bloody Valentine, before there was Yo La Tengo, before there was Spacemen 3 and all its progeny, there was this debut by the Jesus and Mary Chain, which advanced by a factor of light years the combination of bludgeoning roar with impeccably pretty melody, the latter generally pushed way high into the treble. Even as the body trembles absorbing the power, the mind and heart are pleased by sweet song. Drug use advised, refreshingly and openly. What's not to like?
