Fall in Love with Britain's Just Jack
09/23/09 at 03:43 PM by Gregory Robson
One of my more pedestrian/mediocre reviews that I've contributed to this site was Just Jack's Overtones. Though I had mixed feelings about the album, I've come back to it a good few times in the past couple years.

Last month, he released his follow-up and it's done quite well in London. Apparently, he's one of the nation's biggest stars. Which brings me to the point, why is this guy not more well-liked in America?

I tried buying his new disc, but it's only available via import from Amazon.com for $30. I guess I could buy it on iTunes, but I dont know. I want the actual album art. For those that have no idea who this guy is, bypass my review of his last album (though it is worth picking up) and download his new single "The Day I Died." While the sentiment is quite maudlin, the lyrics are great, and it has one of the easiest, carefree vibes around. Oh, and that chorus, oh sweet Lord, that chorus. Infectious to the core.

Ever since I visited London in 2002, I've always considered moving there. I love the movies, I love their newspapers/magazines, their music, I love their writing, I like their commerce, I like their history. Listening to Just Jack makes me want to go back.
