4.0 out of 5 stars another great example of the current scottish music scene
I think the 1st review of this album is harsh! These four walls was a great debut, original, with a great sound that oozed energy and that continues on In the Pit of the Stomach. The guitars have beefed up in places leaning towards a heavier sound but without loosing the rhythm and drive I expect from WWPJP. The song solid and inventive writing remains a constant and...

3.0 out of 5 stars That difficult second album..
After 'These Four Walls' hopes were high for greatness on the follow up, and whilst the song writing has undoubtedly matured, there is nothing here to reach the heights of 'Conductor'. Act On Impulse and Sore Thumb impress, but this is the Jetpacks in a holding pattern rather than soaring higher.

4.0 out of 5 stars another great example of the current scottish music scene, 8 Nov 2011
This review is from: In The Pit Of The Stomach (Audio CD)
I think the 1st review of this album is harsh! These four walls was a great debut, original, with a great sound that oozed energy and that continues on In the Pit of the Stomach. The guitars have beefed up in places leaning towards a heavier sound but without loosing the rhythm and drive I expect from WWPJP. The song solid and inventive writing remains a constant and promises to involve and enthrall.

In summary if you liked the debut your gonna like this. The same can be said for any fans of catchy riffs, emotive songwriting and thick Scottish accents.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding development, 5 Dec 2011

This review is from: In The Pit Of The Stomach (Audio CD)
For a young band making a follow up album to a truly outstanding debut (2009's "These Four Walls") the pressure is really on and Edinburgh's We Were Promised Jetpacks so nearly deliver. There is no doubt they are gifted songwriters and In the Pit of the Stomach showcases their development over the last couple of years although the songwriting template of crescendoing each track which worked so well for the previous album has largely been abandoned, the excellent Act on Impulse aside. This is in favour of a more varied approach, first single Medicine and epic closer Pear Tree encapsulating this range from chunky punk-pop melodicism to epic, while Sore Thumb and Human Error show their skill at writing a singalong chorus has been further developed. The only criticism is that the hights of excellence of the debut have not quite been maintained but clearly this is a development on the road to what is bound to be world domination for the boys before too long.
