The Jealous Sound – A Gentle Reminder (2012)

The Jealous Sound is one of those bands from my High School days that upon listening brings back memories of setting off fireworks in the middle of the desert night and accidentally starting a brush fire that nearly consumed a small suburb. And driving around aimlessly, blasting albums of the time. I was lucky enough to see them play a short live set and have to mark it as one the best shows I’ve been privy enough to enjoy.

This latest album is a step above their past works in that it is more heavily produced. Bands today have access to Phil Specter-esque magical music machines. My main regret with the album is that I don’t have a high bit-rate loss-less format quality version at my disposal. The amount of  audio lost can only be guessed at. My last complaint is that the album starts is more Coldplay than not, meaning less rock and more in the way of roll.  The track “Equilibrium” is more on the rock mark. A Gentle Reminder is streamed fully here.

  1. I was rocking ‘Kill them with Kindness’ yesterday. It’s an album that does take me back.

      There is nothing like rocking to some Knapsack and old TJL. Did you listen to the Jealous Sound’s Got Friends EP? Enjoyable stuff.
