Repress! The recipe for a cult-classic: a band's most-anticipated release which features a big change in sound encounters a divisive reception. Fans of the band's early work cry foul, and a younger, more open-minded set of fans (acquired by a catchy, almost accidental hit, nonetheless) welcome a tuneful and nuanced, yet often mournful offering. Pepper in an undated production and jump almost two decades into the future. The remarkable thing about Stoned & Dethroned, The Jesus & Mary Chain's fifth album, is not that it's a cult classic, but that it's also regularly touted as the band's best album.
