My other CDs are feeling a little left out! This album hits the spot Monday to Sunday. Played in the morning it cures a hangover like you never had one. It's melodic but not Pato Banton, angsty but not Hole,(occasionally and not inappropriately) uses electronic samples but it's not the Pet Shop Boys. It's the Jealous Sound and it's fantastic! They're not lyrical geniuses but that is more than adequately compensated for in an unusual excellence in all other dimensions. You will not be disappointed

HASH(0x8e9d7d38) out of 5 stars Can't get enough 18 Oct. 2004
By Ryan P. Baker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Probably the best album of 2003. This band's first full length album breaks through. Blair Shehan's amazing vocals leave you wanting more and more. Naive, the second track, shifts into high gear, the bassline rocks. Above the waves, the last track, is one of my all time favorite songs, it starts on such a sappy note, but then breaks into depression and questions of being. I love this album, and you will too.

HASH(0x8ef1f414) out of 5 stars ONE OF MY FAVORITE RECORDS! 28 May 2004
By Mark Zanca (sonic 77) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I just can't get this CD out of my CD player. It is an awesome record & truly a master piece! The 12 songs from A to Z are extremely catchy & memorable. I love all the knapsack records, but this record shows a much more mature sound & song writing style. Blair Shehan is one of the best singers & writers around these days. His new band ROCKS! Get this record it is worth every penny!

HASH(0x8ede45d0) out of 5 stars Great full-length debut 10 Jun. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The new release by The Jealous Sound continues in the fine tradition of their self-titled EP and lead singer Blair Shehan's previous band, Knapsack. "Kill Them With Kindness" is a great record, full of melodic rock songs with just the right tinge of electronic flourish. Shehan has a knack for capturing the lovelorn soul, and the lyrics really shine, a bit more direct and comprehensible than his previous work. The album is a bit more consistent in terms of quality, and a lot more varied in terms of sound, than the Knapsack discs. A very strong debut; not your average 'emo' band. I'm looking forward to seeing them live sometime.

HASH(0x8ef1f3cc) out of 5 stars Better with every listen 1 Aug. 2003
By R. Vandervort - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The thing I like about the jealous sound (and knapsack too) is that the songs don't immediately impress upon you their value. It takes a few times through the album to really understand. But once you have that epiphany, you realize their albums are worth every penny you paid. Many times the chord progressions are awkard and unconventional, but somehow they really work well. I love how they can layer rather dark subjects over blair's melodic and very soothing vocal melodies. This is one of those bands I hope end up with the longevity of the rolling stones.

HASH(0x8e9db27c) out of 5 stars these guys rock! 3 Nov. 2003
By S. Wilkinson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I saw these guys open up for Cursive last month and they were really good. The lead singer has a great voice and the guitars were echoing in my head throughout that evening. Every song they sang was appealing. Nevermind the earlier post by the dude that takes his pseudo independent listening (yes i know they are signed bands) way too seriously with the "cool band" name dropping. I dont need a record store geek to tell me what is cool. Buy the CD its worth it.
