I was driving this evening. I had this CD, this one that I listened to sparingly once or twice before, before I found Burning Airlines (which I highly recommend, as well). What BA is to Jawbox, this is to Jawbreaker, but I'm sure most of you know that.
Anyway.
I was driving along. I listened to this album. I drove some more. Odd things happened. I smiled. I cried. I laughed. I danced in my seat. This CD totally rocked me out. From the beginning anthemish (if you could allow me the slack here) Crown of the Valley, to the beauiful Sweet Avenue, I was glued inside my car. I played I Typed for Miles three times straight. I couldn't even pull over to fill up my car with gas until every song was done. Twice.
Blake's songs move me. I'm still haunted by that masterpiece Bivouac, which I don't even own, but have heard blaring from a friend's stereo at a party. This album is no different.
This ain't your father's punk rock. It's something... new. Beautiful. Moving. Full of emotion.
I recommend this album highly. Listen to it. Don't expect full-on adrenaline (let Naked Raygun, reissued, btw, do that). It's mellow. It's wonderful.

I'd say "perfect" if I was more prone to hyperbole, but this album is by far one of the best of the last decade. Being a Jawbreaker fan, I was keen on hearing Jets to Brazil, and at first sadly disappointed. It was so different(evolved?) from Jawbreaker that I couldn't listen to it, and I gave the CD to a friend, who later copied one of the songs onto a mixed tape I listened to a few months later...the tape got stuck in my car tape deck and after a few (mandatory) listenings the music and lyrics of the song ("Morning New Disease") started to grow on me like a fungus. Eventually, I stole the CD (back) from this friend, and there hasn't been a day in the last year where I do not play something from it. While the music is less aggressive than Jawbreaker (the "Dear You" Geffen release is exempt from all references to Jawbreaker) it is actually more powerful on the merits of its really well articulated nuances. Also, Blake Swarzenbach's lyrical facility is at its peak- some lines are unforgettable. It would be interesting to see some of the fiction he left Jawbreaker to write...after seeing J2B play recently in Boston, I have to say many the songs from the NEXT CD (due out 8/15) are a little slower on average, and at times more influenced by the country ballad than anything else-but I'm sure the release will also be excellent. Also, its sounds as though Blake has borrowed some of his own earlier material in composing the new album (e.g. a couple of hooks, and even the line "Orange Rhyming Dictionary"- the title of release #1 for a chorus on the new release...the concept itself originally a la Tom Robbins). Enough typing, buy the CD.

This is probably one of my top ten favorite CDs of all time. The vocals, the guitars, the drums, just everything is incredibally well done. I have never seen them play live, so I have no comment on how good the CD is versus how good they are live, although I would love to see them live.
Anyway, my favorite songs are Lemon Yellow Black, track 5, and track 8. All the songs are really cool actually, but I'm not too fond of I Typed for Miles, although I don't really mind it.
If you want to buy a CD, buy this one!

Yes I know this album was not released in 96. Still this record is built on the solid foundation made in the golden age of "indie" rock. Smart fragmented lyrics delivered over solid punk flavored rock music. I hesitated in getting this because of the mixed reviews overall for this band's releases. I like that DC guitar rock sound (Juno, Jawbox, etc) but I was hesitant. Now I am unsure of what city this band calls home, but, they seem to be coming from that place musically. While there is 5% more classic rock than punk in the mix, I think this album slays large amounts of pop punk/emo out there. Why? The vocals are not manner so much as delivered in a natural style and the music is driving in a style unconcerned with obvious sign posts. Yeah yo get the feel they have influences but Jets always plays then close to their chest. Favorite tracks? "Resistance is Futile" is anthemic and driving in a very smart way. "I Type for Miles" somehow seems to channel both prime Nirvana and Jawbox. So who is this album is for? Those who like smart guitar pop and are not afraid of some punk moments will find this album very satisfying. Well worth it.

Okay, I know, everyone will always equate Blake with Jawbreaker, which is not a bad thing, by any means. Jawbreaker was able to soothe me with their music and message like no other band could do. Then, when I heard they were breaking up, I thought, what do I turn to now? Am I going to wear out my "Dear You" and "24 Hour..." cd's because there is nothing left? Enter-- Jets To Brazil. Not: part-Jawbreaker, part Texas Is The Reason, etc... Rather, they are the kind of band and music Blake's been dying to make. Granted, with his voice, and guitar playing, the comparisons are inevitable. But, there is something within these songs that leap beyond anything Jawbreaker ever put out. I'm not going to sit here and list every good song on the cd, and why I think they are so amazing. I mean, I could go on and on regarding the unbelievable horror and depression behind 'Conrad' "...warming her wrists in promising water... double edged and super blue, verticlly letting the light from you...", or the sincere, loving qualities of "Sweet Avenue", the acoustic ballad that closes the album... "now all these tastes improve through the view that comes with you... thank you for making me see there's a life in me, it was dying to get out..." Blake's lyrical proficiency is as evident as it's ever been. Rush out and purchase this album at once. If you ever loved Jawbreaker, not for how "punk" they were, but for how their songs made you feel, then "Orange Rhyming Dictionary" is a necessity.
