In the small, remote town I live in, the only music you'll ever hear is on MTV. I never knew music could sound like this. I'd never heard anything indie at all, and nothing that wasn't on the radio.
I heard about Jets To Brazil though EVE6, who sing there praises constantly. I picked up "Orange Rhyming Dictionary" and instantly fell in love. The jet's second album is pure bliss.
This is the CD that sealed my fate as a musician. On some tracks, like Milk and Apples and Your x-rays it is impossible to sit still. little light is a song that will be stuck in your head until next may. This album is dark and catchy.
What's great is the Jets accessibility. You can sing along to this! The lyrics are thoughtful and emotional. The music is lush and full, incorporating cellos and keyboards among other sounds to round it out.
The first three songs are good but after that this album really picks up speed. It is not the same ole same ole. You'll be left in awe.

Orange Rhyming Dictionary is a great album, but Four Cornered Night is even better.. In my opinion, this album brings out the true personality of Jets to Brazil. Brian (the "new" addition)completed this band and brought to the second album the essential elements that the first one was lacking. Forget what disgruntled Jawbreaker fans have to say.. I am a loyal Jawbreaker fan.. but guess what, folks.. this is NOT JAWBREAKER.. they never will be, and that's not a bad thing. Get over it already. I strongly suggest you see this band live, they put on a great show, and seeing them live will bring a new perspective to the album that you can't get otherwise. Check out the Jade Tree website for tour information.. don't miss this show!!

This album was certainly surprising and the tone unexpected. At first I was very disappointed expecting something a little more like their first release, or like Jawbreaker's Dear You. After a few days of bitterness I gave it a chance and listened to it without my previous expectations, and realized just how amazing it is. The lyrics are powerful, clearly sprouting from a lost love, and the music, though softer, is far from a let down. The songs Mid-Day Anonymous and Orange Rhyming Dictionary are simply amazing. I strongly reccomend this cd.

If I'd written this review after the first time I listened to FOUR CORNERED NIGHT, I would have given it five stars with no problem. Which is why I usually wait a while before I write reviews here. It's not that FOUR CORNERED NIGHT is bad, because it's actually incredibly good. In fact, it's still one of my favorites from 2000. But the more I listened to it, the less impressed I was with it as a WHOLE.
First, what's good about it? No doubt about it, the lyrics, which are often surprisingly sad, but always very pointed, intelligent, and full of some fantastic imagery. Compared to other bands who labor under the "emo" label, JTB's songwriting is far more advanced. It's what sets JTB apart from the crowd and makes them a band you must hear. That songwriting ability can be attributed not only to leader Blake Schwarzenbach (the singer with the great, David Lowery-with-a-sore-throat voice) but also to what is essentially an all-star, veteran group of musicians, who have always known how to move a crowd. Now they're making us think a little bit, too. FOUR CORNERED NIGHT shows JTB is maturing musically as well, as the soft, melodramatic piano of "In The Summer's When You Really Know" proves. It's an especially nice, surprising touch. My other personal favorites include "You're Having The Time Of My Life," "Little Light," "Your X-Rays...," "Milk and Apples," "Mid-Day Anonymous," and "Orange Rhyming Dictionary."
So why did FOUR CORNERED NIGHT lose its touch with me in repeated listens? Well, in some ways, the album as a whole is kind of a downer and could have used a little more humor is brighten the corners a bit.

Like Blake sings in 'Little Light,' are the Jets drowning in melodrama? I understand that a fiercely poetic side is being shown more and more in Blake's songs, and perhaps it's the old Jawbreaker fan coming out in me, but I did not enjoy this album as much as their first. I think Blake must have been in love when he made this one; however, despite the serious and nascent mellowness that comes out in much more use of the keyboard, there are some wonderful songs--Orange Rhyming Dictionary, Your X-rays, Pale New Dawn, Mid-Day Anonymous, a few others. A new side to the Jets emerges with each song in this album, as there is no burning and raw edge like "Morning New Disease" on Four Cornered Night, but hey, I guess the pristine vision of the artist (Your X-rays) is always changing. A good album if you enjoy the great baritone of Blake, but for first timers, be warned--this may not be what you were expecting.

Ok, I will state this first: I am a huge fan of Blake's work in Jawbreaker. However, I realize this is not Jawbreaker and can't even be compared to Jawbreaker. Well maybe to "Dear You." I am making this disclaimer so some assclown doesn't criticize my review by saying "This is not Jawbreaker..get over it."
I loved Orange Rhyming Dictionary. I thought it was original, intelligent, and it rocked in some places, mellowed out in others. This CD, unfortunatly, stinks. It is uninspired, dull, and boring. There is not one track on this CD that doesn't start out like it could be great. "You're Having The Time Of My Life," "Little Light," "Milk And Apples," and "Air Traffic Control" all show promise early but soon fade into uninspired ... . I hope this is a case of "Sophomore Slump" and not a sign of things to come for this once promising band.
