iTunes Review

Although they're reticent to call themselves a supergroup, JJAMZ are just that. The Los Angeles band comprises Jason Boesel (of Bright Eyes and Rilo Kiley), James Valentine (of Maroon 5), Alex Greenwald (of Phantom Planet), solo artist Michael Runion, and singer Z. Berg (of The Like). “Get What You Want” opens their 2012 debut album, Suicide Pact, with slick and sophisticated radio pop, hinged on Phantom Planet’s hook-laden pop and laced with The Like’s alluring vocals. The title track struts with Maroon 5–style lilting grooves, as Berg’s playful singing and catchy melodies round out the edges. “Heartbeat” and “Square One” reveal a love for “Heart of Glass”–era Blondie (especially the latter, with Berg’s deliberate Debbie Harry–styled singing). The Berlin-esque male-female call-and-response vocals in “Lax” beg for more duets. The infectious standout “Cleverly Disguised” bounces with a “Lust for Life” bravado, save for the heavily reverberated surf guitars. Conversely, “Poolside” finds Berg singing in a muted and demure timbre more reminiscent of Ivy's Dominique Durand. A gorgeous cover of Tyrone Davis’ “Change My Mind” closes.

SAFE FOR THE KIDS!!!

THANK YOU!! Thank you to JJAMZ for writing a song I don't mind putting on my young girl's iPods.
THANK YOU iTunes for making it free!

Probably not the most original song or tune, but what Pop music is?? It's a nice groove, I would have been head over heels for it as a teen, and it's good for the car when the kids are in it!

JJAMZ brilliant

Perfect for the Summer or a great drive around with friends love Z Bergs voice in this album. And the different version of square one nice touch guys.

THE summer album

I was so hyped up for this album to come out and I was pleasantly surprised. I personally love Cleverly Disguised, LAX and Suicide Pact. I also enjoyed the new version of Square One, adopted from Z's band, The Like. It was nice to see a favorite with a twist. Overall, a very groovy album full of many summer "jjamz" (if you excuse the pun). Definitely worth the money!
