JET Shine On (2006 Taiwanese edition 14-track CD album recorded with Get Born producer Dave Sardy and lovingly handcrafted at the legendary sound maestros Hillside Manor Studio in LA to create a vibrant mix of classic blues-rock riffs and boogie-woogie melodies including the single Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is' sealed picture sleeve with obi-strip)
The second album by Jet, Shine On finds the Australian band coming on leaps and bounds from their acclaimed debut, Get Born. Whereas that album showcased Jet as a garage band, Shine On demonstrates that Jet are heading for bigger things altogether. It's still very much a slice of retro-rock, and Jet still wear their influences proudly on their sleeves, but they're so blatant about it that it's somehow forgiveable. Plus, it helps that their songs outstrip anything their influences have done recently, as demonstrated on the anthemic "Bring It On Back" and the ballad "Shine On" - the two best Oasis songs for years, even if they were written and recorded by Jet. Meanwhile, guitar-led songs like "King's Horses" and "Skin and Bones" would not sound out of place on classic albums by the Rolling Stones or the Faces. Elsewhere, though, it's the rockier numbers where Jet really shine, such as the catchy first single "Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is", the stomping "Stand Up" and the aptly-named "Rip It Up". Any of the songs on Shine On could have been recorded in the past 40 years, and therein lies their charm. Jet have mined some of the best rock albums of the past, and in the process created an album that's destined to be a classic. --Ted Kord

It opens up with 'L'esprit d'Escalier', which is an intro to the next track, Holiday.
'Holiday' is a brilliant opener with a killer riff. Jet spark a 'two fingers to everyone' attitude here with the killer line 'Makes no difference what they say, we're going on holiday.' There is a raw, sometimes punky feel to it. Absolutely brilliant and a very likely release.
'Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is' could have been stolen from 'Get Born', in as far as the tone and riff goes. Brilliant first release and the album gets better. Superb track.
'Bring It On Back' is the 'Look What You've Done' off this album, except for the fact that it's even better. Sometimes you can hear a Beatles influence, but maybe more distinctly, a more Oasis sound all-around. That's not a bad thing. The song is separated into two parts. The opening part is slow and rather melancholy, but anthemic also. The second part is the best, the chorus and pre-chorus. Still anthemic, it adds a supreme air of confidence and a sign that this band are in complete control of what they're doing and doing it tremendously well.
'That's All Lies' is a fast-paced track, clocking in at under three minutes comfortably. Has a Kasabian feel to start maybe, is very catchy and instantly rememberable. Brilliant.
'King's Horses' is a slower, down-tempo track. Jet write ballads brilliantly. This is a classic example of their songwriting abilities at their finest and the music blends in stunningly.Read more ›
Like the first album, Jet make no attempt to cover up where they got their inspiration from, so while listening to this there are several riffs & melodies that leave you thinking "where have I heard that before?". This takes nothing away from the album, it in fact adds to the enjoyment.
Yes, it is slightly more mellow than their first effort (which is one of my favourite albums!), but the sheer all round talent from all corners of the band make this a very worthy follow up. Put the 2 together and you cover pretty much the whole of the Rock & Roll scale! Which is a hugely impressive effort in my book!
"Put Your Money Where You Mouth Is", "Bring It On Back", "Shine On", "Stand Up" really stick out, but "Skin & Bones", "Kings Horses" and "All You Have To Do" are also fantastic! In fact, all the tunes are just great, and many that will be awesome live, for which I cannot wait for!! They are gonna blow the roof off at Brixton!!
Jet definitely will Shine On!
I can't get enough of Come On Come On and the two tracks that follow it - Stand Up and Rip It Up. And they're just the best of many great tracks on this album. This album is very Beatlesque (and Oasis-esque as well, apparently) but also reaches way back into the 70s for inspiration.
Another good thing is that it takes a few listens to get into it. Once you do, you'll find the riffs and the great harmonies will keep you interested for many repeat listens. After a month, this album is still on regular rotation.
Give it a listen. You won't regret it.
So, I think Jet are an amazing band, and even though people have said there are more soft(er), mellow(er) songs on this album than on "Get Born" (and, to a certain extent I have to agree) those songs are still just as amazing as the fast-paced Rock'n'Roll songs on here, and trust me, there are plenty of those aswell.
I would best describe this album (and maybe this band) as: a faster-paced version of Oasis (with decent singing). Just kidding, Oasis aren't that bad...
