Editorial Reviews

Product Description

jj create R&B and balearic dub from the ghosts of lost lovers; pop as delicate as a fawn's nose across blades of frosted grass. It is the soundtrack for friends packed into the town square's tiniest tavern, their moontanned, apple-cheeked faces glowing, their dilated pupils filled with all the meaning and meaninglessness of a magic 8-ball. Their music is both carefree without carelessness, and self-aware without being self-conscious. With it, they build an ice bridge arching from Gothenburg into the heart of middle America, and everywhere in between.

Review

It's a gorgeous ode to chemically-assisted euphoria, or an effective, shimmering simulation for those who keep their intoxications on the legal side. - BEST NEW MUSIC --Pitchfork

Format: Audio CD
This stuff is seared into my brain. I still like No. 2 better, but this album has an ethereal quality to the melodies that really hits the sweet spot and tends to fasten themselves to your immortal soul.

It begins with a piano-and-voice cover of Lil Wayne's chorus from The Game's "My Life." As with the previous record, lyrical themes are seemingly pretty standard club fare but attain a strange sort of depth, mystery, and honesty in the context of the recordings. Standouts are "Into the Light," "Light," "You Know," and "No Escapin' This."

While it sometimes seems that JJ aren't aiming for anything above laid-back summer drug music, they have a beguiling, blinding artistic streak to their stuff that becomes more and more obvious every time you hear it. They are somewhat similar to Cut Copy and the Tough Alliance in that regard. But that doesn't mean that it's not also great summer drug music. The paraphrase both the LP's last song and Aerosmith, this album is pure Permanent Vacation.

Love love love this album, and love love love JJ No 2. Love the Swedes, they just seem to have a knack for great pop/dance music. This album comes off a bit slower and different than the flavor of No 2, but after a few listens it's just as good if not better.

Good friend of mine just saw them in SF, wish they'd come to Detroit.

One of the many items that a buy during a year that I know little of nothing about before purchasing it. That helps avert pre-concieved hopes. When I bought it I was thinking it might be jj72 reincarnate. One listen dismissed that thought. While jj72 rocked, jj floats. Their soft electronica with a dollop of jazz is for those times when you want music on while reading or when you're stoned. For that genre it's worthy of purchase but to put it on in the car when heading down the highway - - -nope. Tastes are extremely personal but I'll listen to jj72 long before this ever hits the turntable again.

Seeing as how n° 2 was my best album of 2009 you would think it would be impossible for n° 3 to sneak up on me. Somehow it did. My first times through one or two of the songs would catch, but I started to feel that they were "parodying themselves" and diluting their previous work, plus I was annoyed that "5 minuter med jj" wasn't included. Then the all at once the album hit me in the core and I extended my contract to be their butler in spirit for another five years.
