The Mystery Jets finally reach the projected heights
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 08/11/2010 15:02:47
The Mystery jets have never been a truly innovative band. Back in 2005 along with the likes of Razorlight and the Arctic Monkeys, the Mystery jets were heavily tipped to conquer Britain's Indie scene. Sadly they didn't quite take off (scuse the pun) Instead they settled in with the dozens of young (often generic) indie bands working today. Of course songs such as Two doors down and Young Love showed what they are capable of. But Serotonin has finally cemented them as one of Britain's brightest and best working today.
Listening through this album I noticed a more grown up sound. gone are the red and blue drainpipes and converse, and I found a much more appealing and memorable album. Alice Springs opens the album with a Radiohead quality to it. Flash a Hungry Smile and Serotonin has the same 80's catchy chorus which is what made Two doors Down so memorable, the beginning riffs had me hooked.
Songs such as Lady Grey has a more hardcore feel to it, and Girl is Gone has a contaigous dance like quality. Offering some variety and not boring us with the same indie guitar riff. There's the odd cliched lyric here and there but this feels much more heartfelt and purposeful.
It's still Indie. But it's it's top draw stuff. It won't reinvent the genre but this album is a definite stand out of the year. I found it very hard to listen to this album without a smile on my face. Undoubtedly the best Mystery Jets album to date, and a worthy Mercury prize nominee at that.
