AllMusic Review by

Original Album Series offers the Jesus and Mary Chain's five albums -- 1985’s Psychocandy through 1994’s Stoned and Dethroned -- all recorded for Blanco y Negro in the U.K., for a price just north of one full-price CD. The packaging is basic and functional, with each album in a somewhat sturdy paper sleeve (akin to the Creation label’s late-‘80s/early-‘90s CD EPs) that replicates the artwork. This is a more affordable option for those who are uninterested in the expanded 2006 Rhino and 2011 Edsel reissues, but there are no B-sides or non-album tracks here -- just the albums straight up with the original mastering.
