Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

On their second full-length recording, Australian retro-rockers Jet show they've got more tricks up their sleeve (they can, like, write songs and stuff!)--not to mention a bigger and better record collection--than most of their garage rock peers. Shine On displays swaggering but intelligent boogie rock à la Humble Pie, an ability to tear the roof off like their countrymen AC/DC, and Americana-thieving swagger rock that brings to mind the Rolling Stones. They do this rather unpretentiously; they are not pretending that anything they're doing is revolutionary or "new" in the slightest. The song titles themselves all have a ring of deja vu to them: "Bring It on Back," "Shine On, "Rip It Up," "Stand Up." Heard it all before? You bet. The thing is, every once in a while a rock band plugs into the Platonic ideal of rock & roll and actually gets it all totally right. Jet does this, and it makes them sound almost as original and exciting as the people they're stealing from. --Mike McGonigal

Product Description

Following up a debut album that has sold over 3.5 million copies worldwide (2003's 'Get Born') is no easy task. 'Get Born' produced three huge hits in 'Are You Gonna Be My Girl', 'Cold Hard Bitch' and 'Look What You've Done', and earned the band an MTV VMA for Best Rock Video. 'Shine On', Jet's long-anticipated second release not only fills a void for hungry rock fans but sets the bar for what today's rock bands can aspire to be. Already one of the most recognized and respected names in rock today, Jet flawlessly brings together classic rock influences with a modern rock edge. The band already has a reputation for being media favorites as well as luminaries at both radio and video. Produced by Dave Sardy (Oasis, Wolfmother), 'Shine On' is a stand out record, breathing new life into a genre that needs some shaking up.

Shine On, Jet's follow-up to its mega-successful Get Born, is a solid effort; an album full of straightforward, footstompers...if you like energetic, hard-driving rock 'n roll, you'll like this album, but more importantly, it's OK to say you like this record; don't be brow-beaten by the lambasting Jet has gotten from critics (especially SPIN Magazine -- who can't come to grips with liking any band that isn't pushing the "wierdo threshhold" to the limit) and wannabes like Craig Finn, the frontman from the over-hyped Hold Steady, which incidentally has not had a morsel of commercial success. The biggest complaint against Jet seems to be that they're "derivative" or "not original"...well, I've got a newsflash for the critics -- ALL ROCK MUSIC IS DERIVATIVE...so let's get on with life. Shine On is a great CD...dig it without guilt.

5.0 out of 5 stars Where Jet truly "Shines" October 23, 2006
By Jessica
Format:Audio CD
In 2004, you either loved Jet, or passionately hated them. I was actually in the middle. I enjoyed "Get Born", it was a fun album to rock out to, but hey, I already owned "Exile on Main Street" and "The White Album", so why did I need this? Then last week I heard "Shine On." My status then changed, I am now a fully fledged JET FAN.

"Shine On" is far and away more sophisticated than their first record. The songwriting is more complex, the sound more diverse, and lyrically, they have so much more to say. And on this record, they have finally developed their own unique sound. Yes, you still hear the influences... The Small Faces, The Stones and The Beatles lurk throughout, but Jet has now managed to take these influences and turn them into something of their own. On "Shiny Magazine" for instance, Jet sounds like no one but Jet. It's a spectacularly infectious song where the band really shines. The sexy, mid-tempo "Skin and Bones" is also a very defining moment for the album, and a good track to make out to. "Eleanor" is a beautiful and surprising number that goes places we've never heard Jet before.

This album absolutely has the all immediacy and punch of "Get Born." Tracks like "Rip It Up", "That's All Lies", and "Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is" are as ball-stomping, heart-thumping, and dance-ready as any of the party classics from the last album. And the ballads here definately beat out the slow tracks of "Get Born." Sure, "Look What You've Done" was pretty, but "King's Horses" and "Shine On" are so much more resonant.

So whether you were a Jet lover or Jet hater 2 years ago, you should get this record if you love rock n roll music. With 14 diverse tracks, not a single one being filler, there is something to offer everyone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad at all January 19, 2007
Format:Audio CD
If you're reading this, if you're considering buying this album, you probably already know that Jet produces some pretty hard rock, and you like that sound they have...you know, where they completely push it to the wall and are dying to blow your hair straight out behind you and maybe make your ears ring a little. I do like that sound sometimes, and I like how Jet does it. The amazing thing is that they can still pull off a soulful ballad and make you want to flick your lighter on. How can they do both of those things so well? I don't know, but I like it.

I have their last album, Get Born, and really enjoyed it. So when Shine On came out, I was pretty anxious to get it and give it a go. It's not quite as good as Get Born, I think; it's just a little *too* harsh in places. Over-the-top is good in moderation, but this goes Superman over-the-top in a couple of songs, leaping over that giant building in a single riff.

But there's no denying that their signature sound is here, and it's great to hear them rocking out; to hear those vocals we've come to appreciate, and the resonating instrumentation that shakes the car windows when you listen to it on your way somewhere. I don't so much like "Eleanor," kind of like I didn't like "Timothy" on Get Born. (Maybe we shouldn't name songs for people?) But "Hey Kids" was great, speaking to the kids of the '60s who thought they were going to make the world a better place through their activism and idealism, but are now the aged sell-outs they used to rail against. "Hey kids, you never changed the world at all." Terrific lyrical irony.

While this album isn't flawless (and really, what album is? every great album has a couple of clunkers), it's still great fun and I've listened to it several times since I opened it up, which is probably 10 times within a week and a half. If you like Jet's sound, you won't be sorry you bought this CD.

This is the first review I have ever written for any album, and I there have been some great ones I have listened to, including Jet's first release, Get Born. I have never felt the necessity to let others know the greatness of an album before I heard Shine On, which is just that, absolutely great.

There is such a perfect balance of hard rocking songs and ballads like I have rarely heard. In the lyrics department, Jet has gotten smarter, which is especially evident with the title trak "Shine On," which is really a great ballad, by far Jet's best so far, and better than many other bands have out now. Then again, Jet is still best at straight up rocking out, and they are still the kings of that today and widen the gap between them and the next closest band greatly here with tracks like Come on Come on, Stand up, Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is, and Rip it Up.

A second album is always critically a band's hardest because fans only have a few other songs to compare to, and are upset if it doesn't sound the same as the first. If you're looking for another Get Born, you won't find it here. However if you're looking for a better album, and an overall better band than was the one that made Get Born, you will find it in these 15 tracks.

Jet is now smarter, more talented, more diverse, but most importantly is rocking harder than they ever have.

These guys are fun. Nothing fancy as far as musical talent, but catchy tunes. They seem to be a bit AC/DC and maybe Black Crowes?? Great album
