I had been waiting a long time with very high expectations for this album, and I was not disappointed! Most albums you listen to need a couple of listens before you really start to enjoy them, but this was amazing on the first and just gets better every time.
Like the first album, Jet make no attempt to cover up where they got their inspiration from, so while listening to this there are several riffs & melodies that leave you thinking "where have I heard that before?". This takes nothing away from the album, it in fact adds to the enjoyment.
Yes, it is slightly more mellow than their first effort (which is one of my favourite albums!), but the sheer all round talent from all corners of the band make this a very worthy follow up. Put the 2 together and you cover pretty much the whole of the Rock & Roll scale! Which is a hugely impressive effort in my book!
"Put Your Money Where You Mouth Is", "Bring It On Back", "Shine On", "Stand Up" really stick out, but "Skin & Bones", "Kings Horses" and "All You Have To Do" are also fantastic! In fact, all the tunes are just great, and many that will be awesome live, for which I cannot wait for!! They are gonna blow the roof off at Brixton!!
Jet definitely will Shine On!
