The Jesus & Mary Chain: Honey's Dead (Def American)
Richard C. Walls, Musician, May 1992
EVER SINCE the J & M brothers — Jim Reid, vocals; William Reid, guitar — shaded down the obliterating blasts of white noise which made their debut Psychocandy so singular, they've worked their little sub-genre — a sort of doomy and decadent bubblegum music, great hairy elephantine riffs looming over little sing-song ditties — adroitly, without further adjustment or development. Which means that Honey's Dead is more of the same, and if you liked Automatic, you'll likely think that this one's swell too.
