BANG!!!!!! JSBX ARE BACK!
Who'd have thought it, Jon Spencer would return with his hell raising rock n roll trio after 8 years and deliver what could be their most potent, most disciplined, most fiery album ever?
As others have pointed out this is The Blues Explosion stripped down to the bare bones of their essence and like a sledgehammer to the temple they deliver. This is the album they have been threatening but have finally unleashed. As much as I like their other albums, I often think they overreached themselves with remixes, collaborations, different version of this, that and other. This album is what you want.
Maybe it was White Stripes, Black Keys and The Kills having such mainstream success that fired Jon Spencer to bring his monstrous Blues Explosion back to show the upstarts how its done. Theres also less self aggrandizing on this one too, he doesnt yell "Blues Explosion" 50 times a song. In fact the whole album sounds like a debut album from a hungry young band not one thats been going for 20 years.
If like me, you love the band but always felt slightly dissapointed by the albums, the wait is over, by the album and know you were right in waiting for this adrenaline shot to the heart...
