    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.
