Honey's Dead

Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Jesus And Mary Chain: William Reid, Jim Reid (vocals, guitar); Monti (drums).
  • All songs written by William Reid and Jim Reid.
  • Completed just in time for the Jesus & Mary Chain to join the 1992 Lollapalooza festival, HONEY'S DEAD features the Scottish rock group's signature distortion-heavy sound, bolstered this time around by a more dance-friendly vibe and a return to the use of live drums. Highlights of this often-underrated disc include the snarling "Reverence" (replete with controversial lyrics), the supremely catchy "Far Gone and Out," and the blissed-out "Almost Gold." One the Mary Chain's better '90s offerings, HONEY'S DEAD is arguably the band's most immediately enjoyable album.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (5/14/92, p.105) - 3.5 Stars - Very Good - "...the pioneers of noise pop (3 chords and a distortion pedal) are still building castles of fuzz...J&M Chain work their terrain with indefatigable enthusiasm..."

Spin (5/92, p.76) - Highly Recommended

Q (5/92, p.80) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...Snake-eyed, arrogant and tall in the saddle, HONEY'S DEAD is an album at one with dynamic, imagery and amplifiers alike...pretty damn excellent..."

Option (July-Aug./92, p.109) - "...The Jesus & Mary Chain cuts loose once again with a squalor of sound...this is the roar of a shimmering locomotive, powerful, sleek, vibrant and black..."

Musician (5/92, p.89) - "...the band's appeal remains the combination of sloppily loud but essentially appealing licks and naughty, unfocused (i.e. druggy) lyrics..."
