Album of the Day
THIS IS THE NODE AOD FULL TEMPLATE
Jesus Jones arrived on the U.K. music scene in the late 1980s, at an intersection point of alternative guitar rock and dance club techno; if less notorious than their Madchester comrades Happy Mondays, the Wiltshire quintet served up propulsive beats and brilliantly chosen samples that were equally irresistible. Jesus Jones' most famous album is DOUBT, thanks to such tracks as “Real, Real, Real” and fall-of-the-Berlin-Wall anthem “Right Here, Right Now,” which reached No. 2 on the U.S. singles chart on this day in 1991. But frontman Mike Edwards' dozen strong originals offer a lot beyond those familiar hits, from the punky “Trust Me” to the Modern Rock favorite “International Bright Young Thing” to the slightly psychedelic “Who Where Why.” Filled with hooks, energy and inventive spirit, DOUBT is unquestionably Jesus Jones' finest hour.
