So unlike the lyrical redundancy usually typifying rock songs, Jets to Brazil do something that Kurt Cobain, who once criticized the limitations of traditional rock songform: they offer something novel: tuneful vignettes set to highly melodic, almost early Beatlesque tracks.
But don't let the yellow album cover decieve you into thinking the songs are cute and sanguine. Much like the beautiful and articulate songcraft of the Poesies' Ken Stringfellow and John Auer, the Jets manage to write pretty songs about ugly things.
While in the Poesies case, about the failure of relationships and the subsequent loss of freedom in the airtight world of couplehood, the Jets's lyricist sings of love from a kind of solipcistic distance: love almost had but continually elusive. Self-love, too, appears absent in the Jets' reportoire of feeling, since frontman Blake repeats, a little too self-consciously, a fashionable self-mockery that other altrockers will no doubt identify as a distinguishing mark of Kurt Cobain's lyrical production and the whole Grunge movement, generally.
Recall "Dumb" and "On a Plain" et al. But though Kurt's self-parody was mostly in earnest vis a vis a commitment to the ethics of Punk , the Jets chic of self-depecation seems excessively self-styled: Orange-rhyming dictionary seems to have few psychological modalities but one: "Hate Thyself".
Still, the songs - esp. Afterall Kurt doesn't have a monopoly on self-downing, does he? That feeling seems to be as democratic as the majority vote. One thing you will notice, however, is the literary feel of the songs, in their proceeding in narrative way from one idea to the next, so that the song gets real denoument come suppertime. I've heard them and they fucking suck. Please don't call them punk cause they sure as fuck aren't punk. They're slow and sad, and their lyrics don't make any sense.
Just fucking stupid if you ask me. Go get a fucking Fear album, you fucking putz. I like Fear, but Jets to Brazil is way fuckin' better than Fear. They have more thought in one verse than Fear ever had in their lives.Shop Orange Rhyming Dictionary [LP] VINYL at Best Buy. Find low everyday prices and buy online for delivery or in-store pick-up.
