EDITORS’ NOTES

Leave it to The Jesus and Mary Chain to make synthesizers and drum machines sound just as gnarly as the guitar amplifiers that Jim and William Reid so infamously tormented. Indeed, rather than slick up the sound, the band’s move toward a more electronic style on their third album only enhances the drive and aggression on the likes of “Blues from a Gun.” The newly prominent glam and rockabilly influences on “UV Ray” and “Head On” are other thrilling side effects of the high-tech makeover.
