Their lyrics are a little thin (their Swedish), but they give you some rockin' numbers, a little psychedelia here and there, plus a couple of pretty cool ballads thrown in for good measure.
I've never heard of them.........I'll check it out.
I think what I really like about Jet is the way the first few tracks seem to have been done in one session back to back, warts and all...now, of course I know studio trickery can make it seem like this was the case, but I'll take them at their word at the moment...it makes for some exciting listening, I'll say that much...just check out "Last Chance" and how it goes into the hit "Are You Gonna Be My Girl" that amp buzzes it's way into "Rollover D.J." and so on........it reminds me a bit of the Black Crowes "Southern Harmony And Musical Companion" CD in that respect.
