Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Get Born, the debut album by young Melbourne group Jet, works--and works very well--on a couple of levels. The first, and most obvious, is as a lengthy game of "Spot the Riff". Jet seem to have adopted Oscar Wilde's dictum "talent borrows, but genius steals" as their band motto, and as such are not shy about acknowledging their influences. Opening track "Last Chance" bears more than a passing resemblance to the Cult's "Li'l Devil", the baleful ballad "Move On" is a very slight rewrite of the Rolling Stones' "You Can't Always Get What You Want", "Are You Gonna Be My Girl" helps itself to the chugging rhythm guitar part from Iggy Pop's "Lust for Life", "Cold Hard Bitch" could be any one of half a dozen AC/DC songs, and so on, for 13 hugely entertaining tracks: it could even serve as an ice-breaking party game.

The really good news, though, is that Get Born stands up perfectly respectably as a rock album on its own merits. Like their approximate contemporaries the Kings of Leon, the White Stripes and the Darkness, Jet approach their hoary influences with a fresh, invigorating enthusiasm, and recycle them with such an exuberant guilelessness that any tendency the listener might have towards cynicism is suspended. There is nothing here you haven't heard in a thousand other records, but Jet wear these threadbare clothes with such poise and conviction that it doesn't matter: Get Born rocks. --Andrew Mueller

5.0 out of 5 stars The Saviours of Rock 'N' Roll? 19 Sep 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
In the world of manufactured pop that we live in today, it is relieving and refreshing to find a band that can rock AND roll.
'Get Born' kicks off with the short, hard rocking 'Last Chance', and quickly fires into the modern classic and first single, 'Are You Gonna Be My Girl'. After these brilliant opening tracks we are given the second single, the great 'Rollover DJ'. The mood settles with the sensitive ballad 'Look What You've Done', then Jet are back on form with the rocker 'Get What You Need'. We then get the bluesy 'Move On', featuring slide guitar and harmonica, followed by 'Radio Song'. 'Get Me Outta Here' paves the way for the fantastic, heavy rocking, AC/DC-style 'Cold Hard Bitch', and then 'Come Around Again' and 'Take It Or Leave It' bring us to the Bolan-esque 'Lazy Gun'. The album then closes with 'Timothy' and another rock ballad, 'Sgt. Major'.
This is a classic album from another band reshaping the face of music along with contemporaries such as Kings of Leon, The White Stripes, The Darkness and many others. If you are into thundering classic rock albums full of anthemic tracks, Jet are the band for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Very Good 9 May 2004
Format:Audio CD
Okay, it's spot the influence time on this album. Iggy Pop, ACDC, The Stones, The Kinks- not a bad bunch to copy and yes, I'm afraid that a few of the songs on this album wear their influences on their sleeves. But don't let that out you off because they are performed with such pedal to the metal conviction by Jet that you just can't help but be swept along with it. It helps like it sounds like the album was recorded virtually live, a bit of studio banter here and there, feedback, a hilariously mis-timed drum fill on "Take it or leave it"- it's brilliantly raw. I think it's on the ballads that Jet come into their own, some sweet melodies and harmonies- really memorable and heart felt. Can't wait to hear what they do next.

4.0 out of 5 stars Heard it before? Who cares?! 23 Jan 2004
Format:Audio CD
Please excuse this review for not focusing alone on the quality of this album, as there is one thing I want to get off my chest.
The album itself is not an absoloute belter, but it is very good none the less. Jet convey an energy in their music which is lacking in some bands today, and most of the tunes will have you tapping your toes and whistling along. My personal favourite is 'Look What You've Done' - one of the slower songs on the album that is very reminiscent of late Beatles tunes.
What angers me about some reviews is the pretentious eagles who hover around and try to make themselves look clever by saying which band each of the songs on this album sound like and have negative things to say due to that and that alone. Yes - the riffs are occasionally very familiar, but when they are done to this standard, so what? Get off your little 'indie-kid' pedestals and just accept the album for what it is.
Rant over.

5.0 out of 5 stars I said Are You Gonna Be My Favourite CD? 31 Dec 2003
Format:Audio CD
I'd only heard two songs by Jet before i bought this, Are You Gonna Be My Girl? and Rollover DJ, both regular floorfillers at most of the indie and alternative club so i thought i'd buy an album that would put a smile on my face. When I first listened to it, i was blown away. There are so many different sides to Jet uncovered Look What You've Done shows that sensitive side whilst Cold Hard Bitch shows theyre bursting with attitude and theres plenty to go round! One of my favourite cds without a doubt!

5.0 out of 5 stars An Album I Just Can't Put Down 3 May 2004
Format:Audio CD
I have to admitt I was a little dubious about buying this album. I'd heard (and of course loved) "Are You Gonna Be My Girl" and was hankering for a new album so thought I'd give it a whirl.
Well basically, it's brilliant. From beginning to end is a ride filled with quality tunes. Every tune is catchy yet not repetetive and full of good solid rock. Jet also excel at the smoother side with lush piano tones and a voice that seems relativly unprocessed and is all the better for it.
This is one of the few recent albums (White Stripes, RHCP, being the exceptions) that I genuinly can't put down. I never tire of it and heartedly recommend it.
Favourite Tracks:
"Are You Gonna Be My Girl" (Of Course)
"Rollover DJ"
"Look What You've Done"
"Sgt. Major"
If I were in a band, this is the exactly kind of music I would make.

5.0 out of 5 stars More big rock moments than Stonehenge 21 April 2004
By slother
Format:Audio CD
Get Born is an absolutely superb debut from the 4some from Down Under.Whilst maintaining an overall, adrenalin-fuming edge the whole waythrough, the album contains delightful changes of mood and tone. The headgets thumping with a stylish opening trio - Last Chance, Are You Gonna BeMy Girl? and Rollover DJ before Look What You've Done allows pause forbreath whilst enjoying a languid, lens-flare-in-shades siesta. Get WhatYou Need blows the cobwebs away before the tone changes noticeably - MoveOn and Radio Song providing ample time for reflecton whilst encased inwarm ballad. The final five get you back on the dusty road like someblistering tunes and opportunity for reckless singalong action. Theperfect summertime driving album. Get it now!

4.0 out of 5 stars syco on jet 6 Mar 2004
Format:Audio CD
Jet's album is one of the most promising albums released in quite a long time. Their music bring back the raw power of sound back into rock, with their thrashy sound and unbelieveably catchy riffs this is a must have for rock fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars à la carte de rock! 16 Nov 2003
By Gareth Waterman VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
To the immense relief of those of us who had always wondered what would happen if one threw The Kinks, Supergrass and AC/DC into a big pot (and gave it a stir), Jet appear to have found the answer, and are ladling out the resulting soup with some abandon.
It is unfortunate for bands such as these that The Darkness and the Kings of Leon have rather cornered the two ends of this market with impeccable albums this year, and what we could have ended up with in our bowls was the predictable stew of rock anthems and ballads with a garnish of indie facial hair.
However, this is a more varied and more mature album than I expected and nicely fills a hole left between the blues rock and mournful indie. The menu comprises Sixties-tinged indie rock hors d'oeuvres (Are you gonna be my girl), Anthem entrées (Roll-over DJ), and several more contemplative (dare I say torch songs?) prime cuts (Timothy).
All in all, not quite a full feast but enough to satisfy the appetite of this rock gourmet!

If I hear another 'Yeah', this CD will become a coaster for my coffee mug. The first few sound good but towards the end of the album it starts to grate a bit.
