Get Born [Explicit Lyrics]

All Music Guide - Tim Sendra
Jet's Get Born is a seriously rocking album that comes off as a mix between the White Stripes' bluesy insouciance and AC/DC's cockeyed swagger. Toss in some New York Dolls strut, maybe some of Sweet's jailbait philosophizing, definitely some of Oasis' look-at-me attitude, some of the Verve's sense of grandeur, and you've got something to impress your friends as you blast it out of your car speakers on a Friday night. There are a lot of other bands traveling a similar path these days and it is hard to explain why this record works so well when so many others sound weak and studied. Maybe it is because they hail from the no-nonsense Australian rock tradition. Maybe it is the ...

Jet's Get Born is a seriously rocking album that comes off as a mix between the White Stripes' bluesy insouciance and AC/DC's cockeyed swagger. Toss in some New York Dolls strut, maybe some of Sweet's jailbait philosophizing, definitely some of Oasis' look-at-me attitude, some of the Verve's sense of grandeur, and you've got something to impress your friends as you blast it out of your car speakers on a Friday night. There are a lot of other bands traveling a similar path these days and it is hard to explain why this record works so well when so many others sound weak and studied. Maybe it is because they hail from the no-nonsense Australian rock tradition. Maybe it is the tough but clean production by Dave Sardy. Most likely it is the songs. They are catchy with singalong choruses, with lots of "hey"s and handclaps and glam stomp beats. "Rollover D.J.," "Get What You Need," and "Get Me Outta Here" are tight, raw, and flashy rockers. It is a sure sign that you are dealing with a band that has it all together when the ballads are as good as the rockers. "Look What You've Done" is a piano-based weeper that only needs some swelling strings to launch it into Guns N' Roses territory, "Move On" is an early-'70s Stones country ballad with some fine slide work. The only track that really falters is the silly and mean-spirited "Cold Hard Bitch," which takes an ill-advised trip down Nazareth lane and leaves the listener with a foul taste in their mouth. The placement of Get Born's sweetest ballad "Come Around Again" right after it is the only thing that saves the album. And it is an album worth saving. Get Born is a very promising debut by a band that steals from all the right places, rocks non-ironically -- even epically at times -- and sounds great blasting out of a car or on headphones.

    Off to a great start

    This first full length CD is definitely helping Jet get set (haha) in the right direction. They take pieces from other bands, but the end product is all them. To correct another reviewer, Nic Cester isn't the singer Cameron Muncey is.

    Groovy Retro!

    Gotta buy this CD if you like Mod!I love Nic Cesters voice SO much. My two most faveourite songs are,"Timothy" and "Cold Hard B*****". I don't know why I like "Timothy" so much,but that's the kind of person I am,I usually like what other people don't. The CD is right up my alley,but I don't know about my parents...

    Didn't like their fast songs, bought it because...

    I really loved "Look what you've done". The extremely potent Beatle flavor attracted me. I thought it would easily be my favorite song, but to my astonishment it was blown away by "Move On" and "Come Around Again". Its a solid cd, but the ballads are incredible.

    Jet are the new Beatles

    I love this album! The best thing about Jet is there new but very retro sound, that thay can have a very driven beat in songs like ''Are You Gonna Be My Girl?'' and ''Rollover DJ'' and yet be very soft in ballads like, ''Look What You've Done''. I highly recommend this album.

    Holy Friggin' Eargasm!

    Not a shiesty track to be found on the entire album. The first CD I have bought by a new artist since the dawn of mp.3 - so if you're debating buying it, do it!

    The best album to come out in a long time!

    Get Born is arguably the best cd to come out in a long while. It's up and down beat songs are all quite genious and loveable. This cd is definently a must have and should be in everyone's cd player!

    Brilliant Debut

    This album is a great debut from these aussie rockers. Here's what I thought of the songs: 1.Last Chance 3/5 Good song, but gets a little repetative. 2.Are You Gonna Be My Girl? 5/5 Jet's first single. It is a great fast song, and one of the best on the album. 3.Rollover DJ 5/5 Personally this is my favorite song on the album. "Hey! Rollover DJ! You're spinnin' away..." Those lyrics are always stuck in my head. 4.Look What You've Done 4/5 Great tune. If you are the kind of guy who only likes really fast paced songs you may not like this song and half of the rest of the album. 5. Get What You Need 4/5 Another scorcher. Has great beats that will keep you dancing. 6. Move On 3/5 Probably the slowest song on the album. It gets kind of boring 2 minutes into it. 7. Radio Song 4/5 Nice song. Good lyrics. 8. Get Me Outta Here 4/5 Another fast paced song with great beats. 9. Cold Hard B**** 4 and a half/5 Wonderful song. I would have given it a five if it hadn't been on the radio so much. 10. Come Around Again 4/5 Slow but interesting. It can be a very good song if you listen well. 11. Take It Or Leave It 4/5 This song shows that Jet are the current masters of fast-paced. 12.Lazy Gun 4/5 Kind of a dark song. It has good beats and interesting lyrics. 13. Timothy 3/5 Not a song to remember. Still worth listening to. 14. Sgt. Major (Only on UK version) 5/5 My 2nd favorite on the album. A brilliant dark song and a great album ender (for Britain.) Those are my thoughts on this album. It is a great disk, so I recommend that you should go and buy it sometime soon.

    Aussies can rock

    I really enjoyed the whole album, but I gotta say, Cold Hard B---- is a great rocking song for letting off Friday-night steam on a Tuesday afternoon.

    Best CD ever

    Jet is the best rock band around. My generation has seen a lot of bands come and go but Jet has true talent. Not that studio created junk. Long live Jet. - WhoSparks86

    Jet Is Here!!

    Perhaps it is unfair to simply label Jet as a garage rock band. After all, this album holds a lot more variety than say, The White Stripes' Elephant does, or either of the The Strokes' albums. But unlike the Stripes, who manage to make great blues based rock and roll, Jet just sounds like 15 bad cover bands rolled all into one gigantic csupergroup. Are You Gonna Be My Girl is the song that is currently garnering radio airplay, not to mention all sorts of critical acclaim. Cause I'll tell you, Are You Gonna Be My Girl is only the beginning of the greatness and the originality to be found on this disc. The only thing that is bearable on this entire album is Rollover D.J., which while as derivative as the rest of the album, at least has a big fun chorus attached to it, and some nice jangly guitar rhythms. Alas, other than this, its all downhill.

    Real Rock!

    With so many bands surfacing out there it is hard to find bands who really rock. Jet has entered the international music scene as being one of the best new bands this year, reminisent of the the beginning success of The Vines. There is a good sharing of fast and slow songs, but different from many bands, Jet's slow songs are at times more rock filled then some of the faster songs. Some of the best songs include: Rollover DJ, Get What You Need, Look What You've Done, Come Around Again, and Timothy.
