Dirty Sweet [EP] [Explicit Lyrics]

All Music Guide - MacKenzie Wilson
The Aussie garage rock outfit Jet takes a page out of the AC/DC book of cool on its debut EP, Dirty Sweet. The campy foursome delivers white-hot riffs with a Mick Jagger-like swagger while defying the posh N.Y.C. rock scene. Jet keeps it real with raw energy; there's nothing kitschy about it and that's what makes Dirty Sweet an impressive debut. The country-rock drawl of "Move On" highlights the band's Rolling Stones moment, while "Take It or Leave It" is far more spiky and nasty with its wild glam rock style. The fervor doesn't get much of a chance to stop, for the rowdy romp of Dirty Sweet is designed to intoxicate the listener. The sultry basslines of "Cold Hard ...

The sultry basslines of "Cold Hard Bitch" are just enough to do the job, but the EP is merely a sip of what's yet to come from this ambitious group.

    Jet Rocks!

    If you liked the old rock, you will love Jet. By the time the first song is over, you will be begging to hear more. Strong drum riffs and excellent guitarists rule this band. There are some softer songs, but overall, this CD is EXCELLENT!

    Rock is Back!

    Strong riffs, stomping bass lines and brilliant drumming, it’s such a relief that rock is back. Dirty Sweet is the best place to start if you are still unsure of Jet. Three of the tracks are absolutely rockin and give some credit to the rumours that Jet are rock’s new saviours. The fourth ‘Move On’ is a strong ballad that prove Jet aren’t a ‘one trick pony’.

    the next big thing is justified

    though i highly reccomend seeing the band live to get a real feel for their energy, talent and charisma, jet's first ep (a limited release of one-thousand in australia), dirty sweet, is a good taster. with the now infamous track "take it or leave it", and others including the pink floyd-esque "move on" and similarly '70s-influenced tracks "roll over dj" and "cold hard b tch," this ep is certainly worth the parting of cash. all of the tracks are classic garage rock, and these melbourne boys are going to keep churning it out. do yourself a favour and pick this up before their first album - get born - hits the shelves in september. then buy that!

    A taste of things to come...

    The Dirty Sweet E.P. is a rerelease of the debut 12" release from Australian rock outfit Jet. From the blistering guitar intro of "Take It Or Leave It" their distinct raw rock sound is easy to pick. Borrowing heavily from influences such as the Rolling Stones, but at the same time bringing a fresh new outlook on rock music, Jet are definitely a band to look out for in the next decade. This E.P. is a great precursor to their forthcoming album "Get Born" and I highly recommend it.

    Dirty Sweet EP

    An outstanding EP, that will most certainly blow you away. Within the first minute of listening I was hooked. Resembling early Beatles and the rolling stones, it's hard to say this band isn't going to be huge. They certainly have got 2003 covered, and I'm eagerly awaiting the album. I'd advise this EP to any rock 'n' roll fan gagging to get their paws on a band that really put the rock back in rock 'n' roll.

    Freshmint For Your Ears

    Are your bored with the common immitation rock'n'roll term that seems to get tossed about too much these days, are you sick of beeing non-sastified with boring riffs and dodgy sounds, then grab a copy of the Jet EP and be annoyed no-longer. Having never heard of these guys before in my life, I attended their set at the 2002 Homebake festival in Sydney and was pleased with what I saw/heard. My foot was tapping and my head was shaking, "these guys sound great" i remember thinking. So, a few days later I purchased the Dirty Sweep EP and had a listen. I was impressed further as I heard the great tune Cold Hard B*%ch (this site wont let me type b*%ch) which I couldn't help fall in love with the second I heard it. Vocals that scratch away whilst maintaing a raspy warmth, Guitars sounds that Angus Young would smile about, held together with the great rythm of bass & drums that manage to keep you in. Get this EP, you won't regret it.
