Like another ’80s sensation, the Beastie Boys, the Reid brothers must’ve known that their debut album was so perfectly realized that they couldn’t pull off its gorgeous shock twice. Some elements of Psychocandy remain on 1987’s Darklands — its hooky melodicism, its dips into downtempo melancholy — but this time they’re major elements, wiped clean of the early album's blanketing feedback. The result is a bit like goth under the influence of ’60s pop: Had it been written back in the day, Dusty Springfield could have slotted the gloomily epic “Nine Million Rainy Days” next to one of her Jacques Brel specials, while “Happy When It Rains,” by contrast, is a blazingly cheerful anthem for life in England. The sound of this remastered edition is even richer and deeper. Listen for the cymbal washes on “Rainy Days” or the field of guitars that propels “Deep One Perfect Morning.”
