5.0 out of 5 stars This is Not Revolution Rock, It's something ten times better, 10 Mar. 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Zero for Conduct (Audio CD)
This album was released less than a week ago and it's already kicking up a stink. I have had this album for nearly a year now and I still listen to it non stop. It rocks, it roars, it's packed full of 11 songs, each one with individulaty and each one is amazing. Some quiet, some loud each one is just perfect. The louder bits remind me of At the Drive In which is no bad thing. The quieter bits remind me of Pavement which is a great thing. The main aspect of how this album is sooo damn good, are the melodies. The songs are melodic and catchy, and you'll be humming them for days upon days. The band have released 2 singles from the album thus far, "Revolution Rock" and "Summer Ends", it would be worth your while buying the album just for these 2 songs. Complete works of art. Especially "This is Not Revolution Rock". It is soooo catchy and very tuneful. The rest of the songs are superb too. If you haven't bought this CD yet, buy it now!

5.0 out of 5 stars Unlike with The Strokes, you SHOULD believe the hype!, 23 Mar. 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Zero for Conduct (Audio CD)
A band made up of three members, two English, one Irish and surely he is a star in the making, with a great voice that complements perfectly the infectious catchy pop tunes this guys pump out of the Pixie-esq lo-fi guitar warblings! The drumming is awesome too! The one things that steals the show though are the lyrics, always packed into songs they go with each song's mood very well, some up lifting and some straight from the heart of agony! This guys rock and should be huge, with Jimmy Eat World and Rival Schools getting big through air-play bands like this and also The Get Up Kids surely deserve to get a big break also. Album hightlights are, 'This is not revolution rock', 'Underground Queen', 'The boy you love to hate', and the beautifully melodic 'The last thing I should do'. Buy it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Debut From Up and Coming Band, 3 Mar. 2002
This review is from: Zero for Conduct (Audio CD)
recently receiving some attention from the music press, jetplane landing are definately ones to look out for. their debut offers the listener a fresh and diversified sound; mixing in elements of fugazi, pavement and the current emo scene. whilst my favourite songs are the album's heavier moments, such as the explosive 'what the argument has changed changed', they also produce some excellent accoustic, 'quiet' songs. with emo music being brought to the masses by the likes of jimmy eat world, jetplane landing are set to make that all important leap to success. my message.....buy this album now! you won't regret it!

5.0 out of 5 stars this albums grows on you like mad..., 3 April 2002
This review is from: Zero for Conduct (Audio CD)
...at first listen you think "hmmm" at the second listen you're interested... by the third, you're hooked! I got this album two days ago, and i've been listening to it constantly ever since. "Tiny Bombs" and "a miracle of science" are reminiscent of Pinkerton-era Weezer, whereas heavier tracks such as "What the argument has changed" have a faint At-the-drive in air to them. If you're fan of bands like Weezer, Pavement, Promise Ring, Jets to Brazil etc. you'll love this album - It's infectious!

5.0 out of 5 stars Here's what Playlouder thought, 5 Mar. 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Zero for Conduct (Audio CD)
Jetplane Landing are here to save you the effort making compilation tapes of all your favourite American bands. Like Seafood before them, the jetplanes have spent their lives picking out the best bits of their favourite records, jumbling them together and writing a bunch of new songs with the pieces and 'Zero for Conduct' is a veritable feast of recycled alt.rock delights. Getting into the spirit of the homemade tape, these three cheery Irish boys do their Pavement impression on dissonant opener 'tiny bombs', and borrow the mellow side of Jimmy Eat World on 'the last thing I should do'. The bitter dear John letter of 'what the argument has changed' ("I could make a list of all my regrets you'd be at the top of every page highlighted in red") is underpinned by jagged Braid-styled guitars. Elsewhere, the jetplanes fulfil their contractual emo obligation by sounding like The Van Pelt as the driven, angular riffs burst in on 'this is not revolution rock'. While there is very little about 'Zero for Conduct' that could be described as revolutionary, the jetplanes carry it off perfectly. 'Zero for Conduct' is a triumph of familiar sounds that bring an instant smile to your face. And as we're all broken-hearted and sensitive emo kids nowadays, a smile is often all we need to fall in love.
