Jet Shine On (Atlantic) There are a lot of people who will blow a fuse upon reading this, but it has to be said: AC/DC are, and always have been, nothing more than a rubbish pub band; limited in ability - especially in the vocals department - and lacking the irony necessary to appeal to anyone beyond their core audience of thick yobs. That said, however, fellow countrymen Jet's appropriation of AC/DC's two-chord bluster is actually quite entertaining. Maybe it's because they don't wear sweaty sleeveless T-shirts or because they don't have a demented midget patronising us in a schoolboy's uniform. Who knows? But these Melbourne rockers have managed a second disc that takes their world-beating debut and gives it a twist. If reports in the music press are to be believed, we're lucky it's here at all. Tension within the band that built up during the mammoth world tours promoting Get Born took their toll and nearly led to band leaders and brothers Nic and Chris Cester walking out on each other and their mates. Fortunately they got over that and two years later have a record that - aside from the dreadfully lumpen single Put Your Money Where You Mouth Is (which sounds like Aerosmith) - is a more inventive effort. Stand Up is a satisfying slice of bombast and the title track - they'll never forgive the comparison - even sounds like Oasis in their more maudlin moments. Here's hoping the flirtation with the Young brothers is over and Jet can get on with making the sort of noise this album suggests they're capable of.
