Mojo (Publisher) - p.120
4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's thrilling and has lost little of the initial impact....An alternate take on 'Never Understand' obliterates with screeching feedback, howls and screams..."

Product Description:

Issued in 2008, this four-disc box set finds the Rhino label reverently presenting a slew of B-sides and rarities by the lauded Scottish noise-pop act the Jesus & Mary Chain. Proceeding in chronological order from 1983 to 1998, THE POWER OF NEGATIVE THINKING moves from the U.K. group's fierce, feedback-drenched early era (see the pounding squall of "Upside Down" and the rumbling "Just Out of Reach") to its more reflective later tunes (the jangly "Ghost of a Smile" and the gentle "Bleed Me"). The collection also features a number of previously unreleased tracks, including the formative demo "Up Too High" and the amped-up anthem "Walk and Crawl," making NEGATIVE THINKING absolutely essential for any dedicated JAMC fan.
