After listening to the latest from Australian rock quartet Jet, it's evident that this band really likes the Beatles, the Stones, the Stooges and old-school wannabes Oasis. Unlike their contemporaries Oasis, though, Jet aren't merely trying to rewrite a bunch of older and mostly better songs. No siree, on Shine On, they continue pursuing their passion for straight-up rock, R&B and generally upbeat fun tunes and make a valiant attempt to imprint their own character on the whole thing. While occasionally generic, nothing on Shine On is as annoying as their breakthrough single, Are You Gonna Be My Girl, so hopefully the band will continue on the upswing. Jet crash the Guvernment Sunday (October 1).
