5.0 out of 5 stars an amazing musical journey. 17 Oct 2006
By Avernus
Format:Audio CD
[...](ouch) This album is NOT, by any standards emo.. and to label such a brilliant album with such a lacking genre is blasphemy.

but anyways...

It seems unlikely that one of the best progressive space-rock albums would be coming from a giant in the hardcore scene.. but here it is, the amazing 'Jupiter'.

This is a wounderful audio journey through the cosmos, and it is amazingly well done.. Unlike most albums of this type, everything fits, all the looping effects are timed perfectly, and nothing ever gets repetitive. You can tell that these guys have definately been listening to their Radiohead. You can still hear some heavy edges on some of the tracks, but it meshes perfectly with the effect-laden melodic parts.

An amazing album that should not be overlooked.

5.0 out of 5 stars A highly successful risk. 19 Dec 2005
Format:Audio CD
Jupiter was a big risk on the part of Cave In. They were a lauded metalcore band at the time and doubtless this extremely ambitious record cost them dearly in terms of staunch metal fans. It's complexity and ambition also belies the band's age (around an average of 19 at the time of recording).
Musically, Jupiter takes many of the more astral delay effects hinted at on tracks like "Juggernaut" from previous album "Until Your Heart Stops" and expands them into some very prog-influenced arrangements. The throaty growls and barks of of their earlier output are all but gone and singer Steven Brodsky's surprisingly strong singing voice is allowed to flourish. Track times do occassionally veture into the realm of epic but rarely if ever outstay their welcome.
The most remarkable moment on Jupiter is arguably the utterly brilliant third track "Big Riff", which is a perfect balance of melody, power and self-indulgence. This song - and indeed this album - remain, to date, probably Cave In's career defining accomplishment.
Musical influences on Jupiter seem to veer sharply towards Radiohead, Pink Floyd and the likes of King Crimson, though tempered by the band's obvious passion for metal. It certainly went some way towards gaining Cave In credibility outwith metal circles yet it is edgy enough to prevent them being exposed to allegations of "selling out".
Jupiter is an engrossing work; intricate and cathartic with an elegance that critics of Cave In's previous recordings would find hard to believe. Fortunately, despite its interstellar prog-rock idioms, Jupiter remains tuneful and accessible throughout.

5.0 out of 5 stars EPIC Space Rock 28 Sep 2005
Format:Audio CD
Jupiter is one, if not the best thing Cave in have put their name to. Jupiter is eight tracks of seemless energy start to finish. Softer and heavier moments interweave perfectly and create a great atmosphere for the listener. Great melodies, coupled with a great sound and brilliant lyrics make this an essential space rock purchase. Just how this band arent as big as they should be is beyond me. Probably the most underrated band in the world. Fave track has got to be 'big riff'

5.0 out of 5 stars Astounding transformation 28 Feb 2002
By R. Fox
Format:Audio CD
It has to be said that hardcore is a very strange beast. I really cannot think of another form of music that is so prone to not only churning-out band after band that can sound nothing like each other, but the bands themselves churn out album after album that sound nothing like the others. Cave In have completely re-invented themselves with this one.
Until Your Heart Stops and Beyond Hypothermia, the two main releases before this, are metal-core classics. Critically acclaimed and musicallty brilliant pieces of extreme underground that have set standards for many new-comers for many years. But now Cave In have done it again, but from a totally differenct angle. The heaviness has been dropped for a sort of sonic, almost space-age rock sound, which harks back closer to Pink Floyd and the like sooner than in does, say, Slayer or any other thrash act you could have likened them to. The swinging guitar melodies, Simon Brody's terrific vocals and the overall echoing production seems to take you off into the stars in a highly imaginative manner, and yet the lyrics and the messages are still as vital and intelligent as anything before it.
A drastic, but completely worthwhile change of style from a band that never cease to amaze as truly brilliant musicians.

By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This cd sees a dramatic change in style for former metal-core masters Cave-in, producing a spacey, open feeling compared to the claustraphobia of old. Jupiter sees the band adopting a more emo approach whilst retaining the prog rock arrangements used in previous releases. The vocals pierce through the music, drawing it all together. This is the sound of a band seeing beyond the limitations imposed by playing in a certain genre, and they sound all the better for it. However, don`t expect it to knock you out, it`s more subtle than that.
