One of the best sounding LPs I own. Wider soundstage, as well as greater intimacy in the vocals when compared with the CD. Demon did a wonderful job on this reissue. (Munki also sounds excellent)

This is a great alternative rock album. Gregg Araki actually introduced me to this band via The Doom Generation and then when I heard Trent Reznor mention it as one of his favourites I had to check it out. "Sometimes Always" is definetley my favorite on this one.

This pressing sounds really good and even in the mix especially for an album with 17 songs on one record. I will say it comes in a cheap paper sleeve and had some film on it so it needed cleaned. Not the quietest pressing but better than anything Plain Recordings has ever put out.

Seldom did the members of The Jesus & Mary Chain find themselves in the studio at the same time … actually I believe that Psychocandy was the last time the band recorded as a unit. Some will say that due to the nature of their sound and sonic delivery, along with the electronics they used, playing together wasn’t a necessity, that if anything, not playing together made the music more in the moment, more reactionary and spontaneous. Though it might be easier to consider their approach as taking 50’s and 60’s girl groups, along with a helping of The Beach Boys, and turning the songs inside out, so that they sound evil, rebellious and aggressive.

Be that as it may, on Stoned & Dethroned Jesus & Mary Chain opt to balance themselves on the edge of sanity, seeming to finally step out of the pouring rain and shedding their soaked leather jackets. Stoned & Dethroned is dark, though it doesn’t rely on that gloom and doom feeling where prior to each breath each member considers suicide. While Hope Sandoval sings but one track with Jim Reid, on “Sometimes Always,” her sheer presence manages to connect to all of the other songs, making those songs sound drifted wasted and washed, causing me to wonder how much of a hand she played, and the influence she had on the remaining tracks.

It’s interesting to consider that Jesus & Mary Chain felt it necessary here to punch holes in their wall of sound, and fill those holes with acoustic guitars. While most bands manage to inter-weave their tracks, each number on this album stands on its own, all consistent, without the need for blending … it's more a series of individual pop songs that don’t need to howl to gain attention. The tracks laid down here are more transparent, filled with a greater sense of beauty, even if that beauty is reflected through their own eyes. Their decision soar, despite a lack of amplification, allowed the lads to focus more of their lyrical presentation, and they did so brilliantly, creating a more accessible and satisfying record, one that sounds for all the world as if you’ve heard it before, but the truth is that this skillful romp merely required time for the boys to bring everything from their past into focus and make an album that was unlike anything they’d ever considered before.

"Stoned & Dethroned" is probably the best distillation of the Jesus and Mary Chain sound that Jim and William Reid managed over the course of all of the group's albums (and the multiple b-side compilations) they released. This album expressed their songwriting as clearly as possible, without too much stylistic distraction. It's graceful and emotive, a more mature articulation of their favorite themes without much of the slightly snide posturing that plagued (or was a highlight of, depending upon your point of view) much of their earlier work. They sound much more relaxed with their image and relationship with the world and their listeners—no assault is necessary, no getups are needed. The songs are the songs, and the feelings are truly felt. Much of it is delicate, languid, intimate; almost a whispered, dusty hush. There's a sort of ghost of country rock vibe happening throughout. A lot of this is probably the result of actually recording with a full group for the first time in their history as the JAMC: they had Ben Lurie, who'd been playing live with them as bassist for a few years, and Steve Monti on drums, so the entire thing gels beautifully, almost as though it was recorded possibly not in but metaphorically next to Muscle Shoals. Or at least with Muscle Shoals in mind. This is the sound of Jim and William telling you who they are, looking back at who they were while coming to terms with being adults and achieving a melancholy understanding that life is simply a confusing, somewhat pathetic mess.
