New AC/DC? Naw. BUT, these guys can play! I saw them on SNL and had to buy their album. I especially appreciate that they are simply plugging Les Pauls into Marhalls and turning them up to the obligatory 11. No pedals, no effects, and the recording doesn't sound terribly overproduced like a lot of Nu Metal (although I do like Nickleback and Puddle of Mudd).
What is amazing is that this band seems to be able to go from AC/DC-like rock stompin' to Beetles-esque balladry in a snap. The lead singer has a very good voice. I eagerly await a follow-up effort.
Try playing Jet's "Get Born" CD on your computer and see what you get. On my puter, it is unplayable, probably due to the fact that it has Macrovision protection on it. You can't play it using Windows Media Player or with Real Audio. This disc will only play using a specific program i.e. "CDexe". I'm not about to download some "spyware" program from the music industry just to listen to one disc. In the future, i may be avoiding any discs labeled "enhanced CD" in the future. Sean
Sean: I am running the jet cd in iTunes, and it runs okay. However, I have tried to rip it, and it's protected. Oh well. I still like to crank it in the car. I don't care if it sounds derived. Perhaps this means that rock as a genre has actually, finally, gone full circle and there there is nothing new that can possibly be said . . . I would argue that this has happened to jazz, which means that it is officially classical music . . . Yes. I'm saying that rock may be classical music . . . Uh-oh!
