This is great. Simply put. It's mellow but passionate. The music couldn't be better, nor could the singing. I wish it had more than 6 songs, but then again, I'm glad they didn't try and overdue it -- I'd rather have 6 stellar songs than 10 mediocre. I would suggest this for anyone who likes ANY kind of music.

The talents of Kings of Leon's Jared Followill and Mona's Nick Brown come together to form Smoke & Jackal. Jared's deep and rolling basslines mixed with Nick's echoing voice produce a perfect late night feel to this EP. It's hard for me to pin a favorite track on this six-track EP but I guess I'd have to put it on the dark and mysterious "Save Face". Unfortunately, I haven't seen much of this band since this album. I'm afraid it was a side project while Kings of Leon were on break. Hopefully more to come one day

Some one once told me, "The thing about expectations, they often times leave you open for disappointment."

Never more true than the case of music supergroup's such as Smoke & Jackal. Consisting of Mona lead singer Nick Brown and Kings of Leon bassist Jared Followill, expectations are certainly high to say the least.

Songs like "Fall Around" lengthen a short six song EP in an atmospheric kind of way. Meanwhile, "Road Side" has an organic drum and bass to it where Brown shows uninhibited vocal energy and many ranges. "Save Face" sustains a moody blank stare but is enigmatic in the same breath.

Most memorable and stamping to your brain should be "You're Lost", where Brown's vocal belting takes on a tone that always imagined/hoped would pair with Explosions In The Sky. This song will stamp itself into your brain, leaving you with no choice but to click repeat several or more times.

Not only do you have an album full of expectations, you have as charasmatic a release as I've heard all year. If you're worth your weight in external terrabytes, you know effortless alt/rock with very little polishing is fairly rare these days.

I know I've said this before, but the only thing this formation has done wrong thusfar is tease us with just a taste of what they're capable of.
