Album of the Day
Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, Jet brought '70s-styled classic rock crunch into the new millennium with their debut, GET BORN. While the quartet wears such influences as the Rolling Stones, AC/DC and Oasis proudly on their sleeve, brothers Nic and Chris Cester and guitarist Cameron Muncey came up with a baker's dozen originals that give those influences exciting new vitality. There's plenty of punch in “Rollover DJ,” “Cold Hard Bitch” and Top 40 hit “Are You Gonna Be My Girl” (an MTV Video Award winner on this day in 2004), but the Elektra collection also has plenty of variety - “Look What You've Done” is among the most affecting rock ballads in years. With more than 3 million copies sold worldwide, GET BORN launched Jet skyward, and the album remains irresistibly catchy.
