5.0 out of 5 stars Unbeleivably underrated!, 21 July 2005
This review is from: Home Of The Free Indeed (Audio CD)
I'm not really into "undergound" music. I know there's got to be really great bands out there that I don't hear, but I don't have the time or the inclination to seek them out. I can't be bothered, to put it bluntly. If they're really as good as everyone says then they'll eventually hit the big time, right? Right?
Well I stumbled across this little-known band after my music-loving housemate accidentally left a copy of the album in the my playlist. I spotted it immediately as something I knew I didn't have, but imagine my surprise when I listened to it and found that I not only liked it, I LOVED it.
As far as I'm concerned JAN MAYEN are as good as any band going, and I'm not exaggerating. Listening to their album is like listening to the Strokes' album for the first time, it just clicks perfectly. But for some odd reason there's no hype surrounding these guys, I seem to be the only person I know who's ever heard of JAN MAYEN!
This is why I'm writing this review. If I can just one other person to listen to this excellent album, then it's worth it. People should be hearing their music on the radio alongside The Killers, Interpol and the White Stripes. I have no idea how music of equal calibre can be ignored when you should be getting sick of their music from over-play on the radio! Do yourself a favour and give this album a try.
If you like agressive indie rock, then I promise that you will find something here. I love this album, others should too!
