Jesus & Mary Chain- Stoned & Dethroned [180gram LP] Demon/ Sealed- 2014
The Jesus And Mary Chain’s fifth studio album was originally conceived as an acoustic album. Mutating over the course of the recording to incorporate electric performances played by a live band, it is nevertheless their most mellow and intimate collection. Incorporating elements of Cosmic Country, Americana and 60s West Coast Pop into their signature sound, the brothers Reid redefined what the band were capable of once again. Their collaboration with Mazzy Star’s Hope Sandoval on “Sometimes Always” was their biggest chart hit in the USA and the album also features guest vocals from The Pogues’ Shane MacGowan.
