It's not always that you get to experience the equivalent of an exotic centre filled candy in music. The JMC do this brilliantly well, by covering squeaky clean melodies, with shards of noise and fuzz. ''Taste the floor'', ''Some candy talking'' , ''Never Understand'' are the two outstanding cuts that always play in my head. There are several others- but you don't care about their titles too much. Psychocandy stands out as a work of art- to be evaluated and appreciated in its entirety, rather than for one or two numbers. The Reid brothers seems to be intent on creating a dark soundscape, with their noise drenched melodies. A great album to listen to when life seems to have reached a dead end. Gloominess and dread, but with a beat you can hop to! Not too many such albums come your way these days. I have given up on break through music for the last three years.
