The Raveonettes take their love of the Jesus and Mary Chain to new heights on their sophomore release, Pretty in Black. The Mary Chain 's debut, Psychocandy , was a thrilling collision of extreme noise and sticky-sweet melodies; the Raveonettes' debut, Chain Gang of Love , followed a similar formula and came up with similarly thrilling results. The Jesus and Mary Chain's second album, Darklands , stripped away almost all the noise and gave the group's sound a by-the-numbers feel that was only saved by some great songs and the Reid brothers' personas. The Raveonettes plot the same course on Pretty in Black. None of the songs have the '50s rockabilly in a wind tunnel feel, nor do they sound remotely dangerous, exciting, or even fun. The album is subdued and overly polished, with a preponderance of thin drum sounds, stock guitar sounds, and uninspired singing from both Sune Rose Wagner and Sharin Foo.

The Raveonettes are a garage-rock duo from Copenhagen , Denmark. Formed by Danish musicians Sharin Foo and Sune Rose Wagner, their sound embraces the three-chord subtlety of Buddy Holly with twists of crunch and attitude lifted from dark earlys rockers like The Jesus and Mary Chain. Although the two met on Copenhagen's music scene, it took them a while to decide to join forces. Within two years the Raveonettes had captivated audiences on both sides of the Atlantic. Wagner was born in a small Danish town near the German border and was initially exposed to pop music when his mother mistakenly took Bob Dylan 's Before the Flood for an acoustic album.
