We Have Ignition!,
This review is from: Once Like a Spark (Audio CD)
If only Amazon permitted the use of half stars, because boy this album is stuck right bang in the middle of a "very good" 4-star quota and the old 5-star "classic".
Recalling fellow mid-nineties Irish hopefuls "Kerbdog", Jetplane Landing prescribes very much to the "Loud-Soft-Loud" song structure. Superfly pop melodies firmly stuck down to crunching post nu-metal guitars. To illustrate such a point "Do It... Now!" hammers home a motown-esque snare stomp to a mid-pace rocker. Marvin Gaye would have been proud! Other winners include the hit single that never was "Brave Gravity" and...well...the whole godamn album!
If carefully constructed songs with biting guitars and swirling pop melodies that take you by surprise are you thing, then buy, else stick to Busted.
