Album Review

Jet's Get Born is a seriously rocking album that comes off as a mix between the White Stripes' bluesy insouciance and AC/DC's cockeyed swagger. Toss in some New York Dolls strut, maybe some of Sweet's jailbait philosophizing, definitely some of Oasis' look-at-me attitude, some of the Verve's sense of grandeur, and you've got something to impress your friends as you blast it out of your car speakers on a Friday night. There are a lot of other bands traveling a similar path these days and it is hard to explain why this record works so well when so many others sound weak and studied. Maybe it is because they hail from the no-nonsense Australian rock tradition. Maybe it is the tough but clean production by Dave Sardy. Most likely it is the songs. They are catchy with singalong choruses, with lots of "hey"s and handclaps and glam stomp beats. "Rollover D.J.," "Get What You Need," and "Get Me Outta Here" are tight, raw, and flashy rockers. It is a sure sign that you are dealing with a band that has it all together when the ballads are as good as the rockers. "Look What You've Done" is a piano-based weeper that only needs some swelling strings to launch it into Guns N' Roses territory, "Move On" is an early-'70s Stones country ballad with some fine slide work. The only track that really falters is the silly and mean-spirited "Cold Hard Bitch," which takes an ill-advised trip down Nazareth lane and leaves the listener with a foul taste in their mouth. The placement of Get Born's sweetest ballad ("Come Around Again" right after it is the only thing that saves the album. And it is an album worth saving. Get Born is a very promising debut by a band that steals from all the right places, rocks non-ironically — even epically at times — and sounds great blasting out of a car or on headphones.

What great rock used to be

This is pure rock n' roll. Hard guitar riffs, a nice grooving base line, slamming drums, and emphatic, emotional vocals with an edgy, garage band feel is what this band is all about. The entire CD is full of energy. There is a certain raw quality to the music and it is obvious that no producer has watered down the vibe to make it poppy and radio friendly. There is no whine and complain in the lyrics like many modern rock bands. Jet is bringing back the AC/DC era of rock to a whole new generation. I'm rockin' it on my ipod when I need a pick me up, or when I am in the mood to party.

It's Kinda Funny...

...that iTunes USED to have this album (I purchased it then), but for some reason, a few months after it was up, it was taken down. This is an incredible album by an incredible band. Every single song is a jewel. From the fast-paced rocking mood of Are You Gonna Be My Girl to the soft slow songs like Come Around Again, this album is amazing. Highlight Tracks: #8 - Get Me Outta Here - This song just makes ya wanna jump up and start dancing, ya know? Great song, and the various instruments blend great. #12 - Lazy Gun - The intro to this song just gets me hooked. It's just awesome. The rest of the song follows through and makes up an extraordinary song. #13 - Timothy - Timothy. On my list for the Top 5 songs of all time. The emotion in this song just blows me away. From beginning to end, this song makes me want to cry. It's almost as if you can feel Cameron Muncey's sadness (I know the song isn't sung by him, but it is about his brother). Timothy, simply put, blows me away. So no matter what you hear, I highly recommend buying this album. I mean, it's only $10 bucks, why not?

Awsome album

These guys are perfect...they are trying their own thing, it fits in with 2000's music, but it also fit in with 80's hard rock. They have tons of great songs on this album, that went on to become singles. This is one of the best debut albums ever! BUY ALBUM!!!!

Biography

Formed: 2001 in Melbourne, Australia

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s

Jet found international popularity during the early 2000s, a period in which the band's mix of Exile on Main St. swagger and brash, AC/DC-styled stomp dovetailed nicely with America's garage rock revival. Hailing from Melbourne and comprising guitarist Cameron Muncey, drummer Chris Cester, bassist Mark Wilson, and frontman Nic Cester, the foursome formed just as the new millennium was beginning. They quickly self-released 2002's Dirty Sweet, a vinyl-only EP that proved to be quite popular in Australia....
