Product Description

The Fine Art of Self-Destruction features 12 original songs written and sung by Malin (ex-D Generation). Ryan Adams (Whiskeytown) contributes guitar and vocals on almost every track and Melissa Auf der Maur (Hole, Smashing Pumpkins) contributes background vocals. The album was released on October 22 in the UK where is has already garnered critical acclaim in Q (4 *'s), NME, Mojo and Uncut (album of the month for November), among others. The London Saturday Times said, "(Ryan) has turned producer on a spectacular debut by his New York friend and neighbor, Jesse Malin. Adams reckons that Malin is a 'genius'. Adam Duritz of Counting Crows says that this is the best album he has heard all year. Believe the hype. Malin writes vivid songs with killer tunes and sings them with scary conviction. There is simply nothing more than you could demand from a great rock record. Buy it. 5 out of 5 *'s."

Jesse Malin segued from a decade as frontman for NYC's D Generation, a band whose glam-metal pose was as ironic as it was misunderstood, to this reincarnation as shrewd, stripped-down Gotham singer-songwriter. Comparisons to Bruce Springsteen have already been floated, but Malin's sensibilities here are as subtly shaded and introspective as the Boss's are broad and declamatory. Midwifed by producer/ex-Whiskeytown frontman Ryan Adams, Malin's affection for the likes of Bob Dylan, Neil Young, and Steve Earle is obvious, but filtered through a savory, pop-conscious mélange of musical textures that evoke everything from Motown to Tex-Mex. Malin's lyrical sense is no less evocative, with simple lines conjuring up worlds of possibilities. It's a debut whose heartfelt country-by-way-of-Delancey-Street songs may bolster notions that irony is indeed dead in the post-9/11 world, but also one whose honesty of voice and purpose ensures the wake will be brief. --Jerry McCulley
