iTunes Review

There were some obvious nods to Ben Folds in Jukebox the Ghost’s debut album, 2008's Live and Let Ghosts, and his influence also seeped into the Brooklyn trio’s 2010 sophomore outing, Everything Under the Sun. Jukebox the Ghost's third album, Safe Travels, finds the trio honing its own sound. The androgynously gorgeous “Somebody” opens with multilayered falsettos before Ben Thornewill, Tommy Siegel, and Jesse Kristin fall back on their natural tenors to confidently croon a sunny indie tune that has more in common with Foster the People than Folds. The unmistakable tone of wooden drumsticks on a metal rim keeps time in the following “Oh, Emily,” a quirky cut that recalls the intelligent college pop of bands like Too Much Joy and They Might Be Giants (especially with piano-playing frontman Thornewill singing in a more nasal twang on this one). The somewhat theatrical-sounding “Adulthood” echoes Freddy Mercury’s higher register before segueing to the rollicking Billy Joel–inspired romp “Everybody Knows,” a slice of piano-pop perfection. Thornewill, Siegel, and Kristin harmonize like a Southern church choir in the aptly titled closer, “The Spiritual.”

Regression

This album sounds much more like the first one. Their second album has been one of my favorites for a year now. I literally have two songs in the whole album i would give 3-3.5 stars to, and the rest is just not worth listening to over and over again. I'm very disappointed with this album, and miss the beatle-esque aspects of the previous one. JtG, if you're listening, you need help with your direction. You were headed in the right direction before, this is a bad choice.

amazing!!!

this album is awesome!! it's filled with variety, for lack of a better description. definitely buy this!!! it's a little different than "Everything Under the Sun" but it's still good!

Great
