The Savage Heart is the third album from UK-based rockers, The Jim Jones Revue. The album was produced by Jim Sclavunos of Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds fame.
Jim Jones and his Revue appear, on first encounter, to be the kind of unreconstructed gang of gnarled rockers that might have been making their music at any time since “teenage music” first arrived in the 1950s to terrify parents everywhere.
This third studio album struts in on a crest of rollicking beats and wearing the kind of snarl that even in this new century is likely to delight fans of balls-out, raucous rock‘n’roll.
Jones, on vocals, is very much the gang leader, his voice a charismatic growl from first track It’s Gotta Be About Me onwards. The album is strewn with his exclamations and declamations, from the drawn-out stuttered emphasis on “l-l-l-l-l-liar” in the accusatory Where da Money Go?, to Catastrophe’s opening “Aowwwww”.
Jones’ Leader of the Pack status is reinforced by the repeated or call-and-response backing vocals provided by the rest of the band on 7 Times Around the Sun, and again on In and Out of Harm’s Way.
Musically, new band member Henri Herbert’s piano playing lifts what might otherwise be an overly oppressive feel. His bar-room boogie piano manages to be, variously, celebratory, roiling, turbulent, manic and even – on the doo-wop ballad Midnight Oceans & The Savage Heart, with which the album closes – delicate and moving.
Bar that final track, which seems to spotlight a gentler band, in thrall to Roy Orbison as well as to Jerry Lee Lewis (or even The Cramps), this is not nuanced or subtle music.
Drums and dramatic stop-start guitar chords are used with percussive emphasis, and lyrics are alpha male and aggression-tinged: “You don’t remember me / You’re not the one you pretend to be”; “I’ll be watching you”; “It’s gotta be about me”. Songs are simply and effectively structured.
In the grand tradition of this musical form, though, sometimes a growling, snarling blast of intransigent r‘n’r is the only thing that fits the bill. For times like these, there is The Jim Jones Revue.

Not only does in no dissapoint it is superb, more consistent than Burning Your House Down with in opinion, a better selection of songs and not a second wasted in its trim, but superb 36 minutes. The production is excellent too, remaining clear and focused and providing space for all the instruments and of course, those vocals.
If you're a JJR fan this will provide you with a hefty dose of what you're after. If you've heard of the JJR and curious just ask yourself if youre looking for a hellacious, rowdy, swaggering, spit n sawdust rock n roll then you've been looking for the Jim Jones Revue. Now you've found 'em, join the revolution brothers n sisters!
Jim Jones bangs out the lyrics in his usual unrestrained manner, working them with great support from the rest of the band.
Piano interludes from new member Henri Herbert blends well into the band style (if you can peg them into one!) and is a great addition to the set.
Gritty, snarling and raw rock - this third album is sure to please!
I'm not the best at describing music but felt that this is building on the first 2 albums and also harks back to some of Jim Jones' work with Black Moses on "Royal Stink" (a cracking album in itself and well worth investigating)
This is a band that are great on record but even better live so listen to this and then find them live. Thoroughly recommended.
Great work well done!!!!
