4.0 out of 5 stars Sounds pretty cool to be a werewolf...
Well now, here's a thing. The allegedly 'super-cool' New York rock threesome have returned with what sounds like a concept album about the trials and tribulations of a man that becomes a werewolf... this could go one of two ways. Happily for this listener, it manages to negotiate the twin pitfalls of pretentiousness and self-indulgence that such a concept should be...

3.0 out of 5 stars White Stripes were taking notes......
Jon Spencer Blues Explosion [JSBX] were formed out of the ashes of Pussy Galore, a pretty hardcore punk band featuring Jon Spencer. The sound of the jbsx is perfectly in keeping with today's harsh blues rock howlers eg; Black Keys, White Stripes, Blueskins etc. Those bands are all fantastic and I would say hats off to jsbx for bringing a 90's slant to that late 60's blues...

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent combination of time periods from the rock genre, 13 April 2002
This review is from: Plastic Fang (Audio CD)
Following in a recent long line of 'the' bands, the jon spencer blues explosion has a lot to live up to. Bands like the strokes and the white stripes have already opened up an exploding market for 'old skool' rock. What they've produced somehow manages to combine an almost fifties rock and roll sound with a crunching modern edge and blues twinge, how? Pretty stunning. Whilst it sounds although they are just jamming the sound is amazing, and what's better is the appeal of the music. I am pretty sure even my dad would like it...
In terms of what else is around, it's got the strokes edge and writing quality but the blues/rock 'n roll effect has set this album clearly out on its own at the date of release. Whilst a lot of bands are trying to combine previous generations styles in their music only this group have really managed it, right down to the 50's 'werewolf' styling of the sleeve.
