Jackson Analogue And, Then Nothing

Jackson Analogue And, Then Nothing
Helping to repair the damage done to the area by Level 42, Jackson Analogue join the Bees to increase the number of good bands from the Isle of Wight by 100 percent. But those two bands couldn’t be any different, with the former favouring the kind of ’60s blues so beloved by Led Zeppelin and the Spencer Davis Group. And, Then Nothing is a ruthlessly efficient album that doesn’t waste a single note. The most obvious comparison is Kings of Leon, because of the stripped down rawness the bands share. So stripped down in fact that it is hard to believe that there are five members in Jackson Analogue, because of the tightness and clarity of the music. They do suffer from a little bit of an identity crisis along the way, with a couple of quieter songs that are the record’s weak point, but there is enough good stuff to make Jackson Analogue well worth a listen.
