Best Tracks: April Skies, Happy When It Rains
Basically, psychocandy, without the feedback and distortion. Alright, it's a bit more than that and though it isn't as interesting as it's predecessor, it certainly is more emotive and the songwriting overall is just probably slightly stronger, but i love the noise on, psychocandy, although it gives me a headache if I listen to it too loudly(the only album that does that to me). The second of the Mary Chain's two classic albums, darklands, is an essential eighties album.
This was so different to Psychocandy in a good way that is. It showcases how the Reid Bros. were able to write melodic songs without the use of noise and feedback as the others had said. Well done to the Mary Chain for doing this. My favorites are Darklands, Happy When It Rains, Down On Me, April Skies, and Cherry Came Too
A true 80's album.
A massive improvement from Psychocandy. Melodic and nice throughout.
Lovely themes of melancholy, April rain, and dark lives. Nice album overall.
This album is so different to it's wonderful predecessor but is still a good album in it's own right. The singles taken from it are it's best tracks!
After Psychocandy created some controversy regarding the sound of TJAMC, Darklands counterbalances and shows the critics and the public that the band was also capable of writing strikingly beautiful songs without necessarily recurring to the "Noise Rock" aesthetic.
