Album of the Day
Shine On (Deluxe)
Three years after a platinum debut catapulted them into the musical spotlight, Jet returned with SHINE ON. The 2006 Atlantic collection finds the Australian quartet a little older and a little wiser - lyrics address such topics as the price of sudden fame and, in the title track, the death of Nic & Chris Cester's father - while remaining “another joyfully old-fashioned rock 'n' roll album immersed in the classics,” as NME put it. With returning producer Dave Sardy behind the boards, the boys sound equally at ease with uptempo strutters (“Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is,” “Come on Come On”) and ballads (“Bring It On Back,” “Eleanor”). The Deluxe Edition of SHINE ON adds nine bonus tracks to the original album, including single B-sides and demos.
