Jesus Jones 10/9/2001

Review

Four years since the unnoticed Already, Jesus Jones returned in fall 2001 with London. Stylistically, Jesus Jones delivers the same jaunty pop hooks that made them rock gods with "Real Real Real" and "Right Here, Right Now." Mike Edwards and his crew aren't necessarily concerned with making music for the masses, either. Songs such as "Message" and the catchy electronic twist of "Stranger" perfect Jesus Jones' signature acid house aesthetic over hearty guitar work. The artsy synth beats of "The Rocket Ships of La Jolla" showcase a space rock ambience, but it's the hazy aesthetic of "The A Team" that reflects Jesus Jones' desire for '70s glam rock appeal. A humorous and dazzling track reflecting on the '80s TV show, "The A Team" supersedes the band's fiery disposition on "Nowhere Slow." Perhaps that's their swan song? Nah, Jesus Jones has taken their sweet time in making new music. London is about them and the natural progression in perfecting the music they want to play out live. However, the loyalists who made them superstars nearly ten years prior to this release might have outgrown them. ~ MacKenzie Wilson
