I have to start by saying "Hotel Columbia"... Genius, Fantastic! It's one of those tunes that the first time you hear it your heart leaps and you can't wait for the album to finish so that you can skip back to it and play it again... and again and again. You know what I mean, driving the neighbours nuts while you dance around your room screaming "Call me up, Call me up Columbia". It's that instant buzz from the ultimate drug. It's what I'd call "the Sheena syndrome", as 'Sheena Is A Punk Rocker' was the first song to have that effect on me!
But please don't imagine I'm saying buy this album and skip straight to track 12 because the journey there most certainly should not be missed or rushed. Like Jesse's debut, The Fine Art Of Self Destruction, every song is an individual work of art that could never be labelled 'Album Track'.
The album opens with the new single 'Mona Lisa', which with its very different Beatles-esque production immediately defines an original identity for Jesse's 'difficult' second album. This is followed by 'Swingin' Man' and even though this is only the second track, you just can't help thinking already that most bands' 'best of' albums aren't this good!
I've been anticipating the studio version of 'Silver Manhattan' perhaps a little too much. I guess it was always going to be impossible for this song to live up to all my expectations. I still believe this song is the best on the album (maybe even the best Jesse has written so far) but I wanted to hear it acoustically. All that beautiful, tragic emotion that Jesse puts into this song, for me, works so much better with just vocals, guitar and piano. Maybe if I wish hard enough then Jesse will release an acoustic version.

The second album from Ryan Adams' best mate is a sure-footed blast of Americana fused rock mixed with mesmerising glimpses of Beatles-esque melody. Jesse Malin's self-produced sophomore effort is a breathtaking leap on from debut 'The Fine Art Of Self Destruction', brimming with all the confidence of a young Springsteen (but without the tight jeans) mixed with early Billy Joel. 'Heat' kicks off with the addictive blasts of 'Mona Lisa' (the first single) and 'Swinging Man', before shifting gear with the torch-bearing beauty of 'Silver Manhattan'. Elsewhere 'Scars Of Love' is all scuzzy bass and uplifting chorus, 'About You' is harmony-driven majesty and ode to the rock pitstop 'Hotel Columbia' is a sing-a-long piece of perfection where, "the Shining meets old Spinal Tap" (weird!). With guest appearances from a host of luminaries (including Ryan Adams and Pete Yorn), 'Heat' is a stunning return from a truly gifted songwriter. Malin may not be as well known as his mates but he sure knows how to match them in the tune stakes. What is left, but if there is any doubt in your mind, cast it aside and go buy "the heat" won't disappoint

Jesse Malin tones-up and touches down with more bravado and swagger, emotional baggage, and tales of the scorched city with second album 'Heat'.
Picking up where 'Fine Art...' left off, 'Heat' will define Malin as an ever more meticulous, and determined pioneer of punk-fused alt-country.
Where his debut album placed Malin as a worthy understudy to Ryan Adams in the booze-ballad department, Heat marks a more mature approach to production, without losing any of the rich instant 'On The Road' appeal of its predecessor.
Malin's core themes remain the same. Clean-sweeping poetic draws on Manhatten and Columbia city scapes, living like a trobadour, never staying in one place long enough to let staleness kick-in.
The best moments on this album happen when Malin is at his most introspective. 'Hotel Columbia' is like a diary entry written on the back of a tour bus made into a perfect into a perfect piece of pop-punk. The sweet distortion rips through the aggrssive and inviting storylines.
Scars of love, Silver Manhatten, and Since you're in love, all harness this breezy hustle and bustle of Malin's best rock and roll.
Some songs don't ring as true as others, but with this album, and with the extensive touring that accompanies it, Malin is sure to step out the shadow, if not fill the boots of the sidelined Ryan Adams.

Malin's first album was very good, but almost too easy to get into! This may seem a strange comment, but this album has more depth and requires more work. Songs like 'Mona Lisa', 'Scars of Love' and 'Hotel Columbia' are catchy numbers, which are easy to cling on to. After a few listens it become apparent just how good the album is as a whole. This is a fabulous album and songs like 'Block Island' and 'Basement Home' are very rewarding. If you like this album you've almost certainly listened to Ryan Adams and enjoyed his work and the similarities are endless. In my opinion both have great voices and Malin's voice is perfect for his excellently blended country-rock. Buy this album, Awesome!
