A Boost of Serotonin,
This review is from: Serotonin (Audio CD)
Before I listened to this album, I was worried that I wouldn't like it as I'd heard they'd moved away from what made their album Twenty One, and I loved Twenty One! But although this album does have a different feel and style, it's simply a more mature sound and it's wonderful. Mystery Jets really know how to use synths to their advantage.
The opening song is brilliant, and the beginning leads you into a song, and a album that you know will not disappoint.
Some the songs just put a smile on my face: Show Me The Light has be the most uplifting song on this album. Lady Gray and Serotonin are also fantastic in doing this.
Mystery Jets show they can do ballads too with It's Too Late To Talk, which I can tell is heartfelt and has meaningful lyrics.
And who can't love Flash A Hungry Smile with lyrics like 'Have you heard all the birds and bee have all got STDs?' Sounds odd, but it's another excellent song.
The bonus track, Loose Lips Sink Ships, shows Mystery Jets still can make music with a very alternative sound, and sounds quite different from the rest of the album. This track is also very good though too!
Basically the whole album is amazing!
