Biography

The Mystery Jets upcoming new album Serotonin, was recorded by Chris Thomas, legendary producer of Roxy Music’s For Your Pleasure, the Sex Pistols’ Anarchy In The UK, John Cale’s Paris 1919 and Pulp’s Different Class. Needless to say, the band seem a little at awe in his presence. “He can hear things that none of us can hear,” whispers guitarist William ... Read more in Amazon's Mystery Jets Store

Product Description

Mystery Jets are back with their second album. `Twenty One' is an awe-inspiring collection of oddball pop songs. A clear departure from their debut album `Making Dens', these four young men have grown up in more ways than one. `Twenty One' is a huge stylistic and emotional leap forward for the band.

This new emotional depth dovetails neatly with the band's raised musical ambition on the steamrollering rhythms of flyer single `Young Love'. Featuring their catchiest chorus and a spine-tingling vocal from new London folk singer Laura Marling, its tale of a one-night stand is also remarkable for the richness of Will's voice. The Mystery Jets have spread their wings in style on their second record.

I was given Twenty One and was blown away with what I thought was a debut from a new group. I should have realised that the production, confidence and just outstanding quality was too good for a debut album. Like KM I hear Talking Heads in this album which is high compliment indeed. But there is range of styles here which is just plain showing off as each track is a complete package. Standout tracks are Young Love, Half in Love, Two Doors down & Umbrellahead (can you hear Clap Your Hands here?). Surely MJ are about to really break into the big time (Zane is a fan) - they deserve to.

The Cure, Tears For Fears, The Cars, Duran Duran...if there's one thing this album is guaranteed to do it's to remind you of the 1980's.

Recent single Two Doors Down was one of those classic divisive pop hits. Some would appreciate it for what it is (a catchy pop hit) whilst others would probably be unable to look past the obvious 80's sound (complete with gratuitous sax solo) that it undoubtedly represents. Those of you who land in the "hate" category for this one might as well steer clear of MJ, which almost transcends into parody.

Lead single, Young Love, was, on the other hand, criminally overlooked by most, but is one of the better songs on the album. Laura Marling pops in to lend a hand and whilst it may be very much one of those "boy meets girl" style songs, it's one of the better examples of that mini-genre. It's got feeling, which is rare in a modern day pop song and, like the other standout tracks on the album such as Half In Love With Elizabeth and Veiled In Grey, it is completely devoid of cliche.

It's not a trick that they can completely keep up for the entire album and towards the end there is a definite lull. It's not to say that the lesser tracks are awful, but they are overshadowed by the brilliance on display elsewhere.

Still, a good album with a handful of excellent tracks is certainly worth the investment in my opinion.

They've tightened their sound and Blaine's voice has never sounded better - leading the band into wildly catchy tunes, feeling more like a complete album then their previous. Fans of their first will find this second effort greatly welcomed.

After hearing the recent single 'Young Love' and being aware of past material and various music videos on mtv2, i felt this album was a must buy. The album has a number of instantly catchy songs, from 'Hideaway' to 'Two Doors Down', the majority of songs are upbeat with hard hitting drums and a mix of vocal chanting and harmonious melodies. Basically if you like the single 'Young Love' or any of their previous tracks, this album won't disappoint. Still in the early days i think this album will propel this band up a few levels, watch this space.

Not listened to the Mystery Jest before hearing Two Doors Down, great band and great tunes. The whole album is easy listening.

Roughly 25 seconds into the first song 'Hideaway', a bassline comes in, a sexy funky bassline that cuts through the police sirens that start off the song. Then comes in the song as Blaine Harrison sings of an 'undercover lover' atop a sea of catchy hooks and backup vocals. This is a good signal of what the rest of the album is like. Delicious hooks dancing among sing-along choruses with knowingly clever lyrics. Highlights include 'Half In Love With Elizabeth, the irresistible 'Two Doors Down' (a retro throwback), and the tender almost ballad of 'Flakes', though there isn't a dud among these songs. Expect much more from these boys, as a group with such melody, pop sensibilities and pure essence of fun are going to be going places.
