MYSTERY JETS: Making Dens (679 Recordings, 2006)

Nove nade britanske scene zovu se MYSTERY JETS. Bend čine četvorica mladaca i otac (da, otac!!!) pjevača, koji je ujedno i neki legendarni nešto…

Album otvara poskočica o računovođi Denisu, You Can't Fool Me Denis. To je jedna od onih s "catchy" refrenom i melodijom i već pri drugom slušanju znam riječi i pjevušim melodiju, ko da sam je čuo prije toga milion puta. Onda slijede Purple Prose i Soluble In Air, koje kao da su preuzeli od THE CORAL. Ali iz neke neinventivne i dosadne faze. Pa onda novi hit, The Boy Who Ran Away, pa opet dvije dosade.

Dolazim do ZooTime, koja je bila singl, ali bolje da nije. Kraj spašavaju inventivna Diamond in the Dark i jedan od starijih singlova Alas Agnes o transvestitu zvanom Agnes, a koja ima jedan od najupečatljivijih refrena ove godine. Za kraj je ostavljena naslovna pjesma, no ista je za nekih šestipol minuta preduga.

Na kraju, pitanje je dal bi se ovaj album isplatilo slušati ili pisati o njemu, da nema genijalnih You Can't Fool Me Denis, The Boy Who Ran Away i Alas Agnes, koje spašavaju dojam i kao da mole da im dam još jednu šansu.

Alas Agnes

Agnes it all ended up in tears

Well we were an odd couple you and I
In our strange and original attire
I thought, I thought it was love at first sight
My mother, my mother, she shivered with fright

Well I couldn't tell if you were boy or girl
My mind was in such a swirl
I couldn't tell if you were boy or girl
True love roams, it roams where it will

Alas, Oh Agnes
I still adore you, oh Agnes
Oh Agnes, Oh Agnes, Oh Agnes, Oh Agnes

Agnes it all ended up in tears
Mind, you still have your souvenirs
You've got scars from head to toe
It's getting hard to tell your friends from foe

Well, you picked me up at King's Cross station
After my backstreet operation
You broke me, you broke the painful news
You dumped me, you dumped me for a pretty young muse

Well my lessons they are there to learn
My scars are caused by cigarette burns
I have no memories and I spend all day
Balancing the porcelain

Alas, Oh Agnes
I still adore you, oh Agnes
Oh Agnes, Oh Agnes, Oh Agnes, Oh Agnes

Oh Agnes I adore you
Oh Agnes I adore you
Oh Agnes I adore you
Oh Agnes I still adore you

PS: Čak im i web stranica, kao i zadnja strana albuma previše liče na THE CORAL uratke...
