mystery jets: twenty one

I was never really a big fan of Mystery Jets’ Making Dens. I only listened to it because I wanted to know what all the fuss was about... it was an alright album, but nothing special at all. Nonetheless, I have this philosophy that I should never shut down a band/artist even if I disliked their previous releases (I hated everything Arctic Monkeys when their first record came out, but I listened to Favourite Worst Nightmare and my opinion of them had completely changed!)

So yes, you guessed where this is going; I am recommending Mystery Jets’s sophomore album, Twenty One, in this post. I can’t explain why... maybe because I just finished school and finally get to relax, but I absolutely love the fact that Twenty One is such a pop driven record full of cheesy relationship songs. It just sounds so simple, care-free, and pleasant to me! This is probably the only time I would recommend a song ("Young Love") even with the lines: "Is that you on the bus? Is that you on the train? You wrote your number on my hand but it came off in the rain." With such a cheering vibe and 80s/XTC influenced sound, Mystery Jets' latest is the perfect album to listen to while talking a stroll in these gorgeous spring afternoons!
