If Immigrant was the perfect balance of the Aston twins' bizarre, yelping vocal stylings and their band's expertly delivered post-punk, then Discover was just a slightly glossier, more approachable brand of perfection. Flawless singles like "Heartache,"
"Desire" and "Sweetest Thing" are joined by almost-as-good gems like "Over the Rooftops," "Kick" and "Brand New Moon." The music has become almost stadium-sized by now, thanks in part to the addition of Mick Ronson-worshipping guitarist James Stevenson to the lineup, but the Jezebels still maintain their patented auras of dark mystery. Strange, sublime, and utterly unique pop music.
The reissue is well-worth it for fans! The disc of rarities is packed with long-lost artifacts of this inspired time.
