Product Description

Serotonin sees the band strip away much of the excess on their lovelorn, warmly-received 2008 album Twenty One, Serotonin sees the Mystery Jets mapping out entirely new musical territories: the synthesizer-fuelled perfect pop of Dreaming Of Another World; It’s Too Late, which begins as an aching soft-rock ballad before unexpectedly heading somewhere infinitely weirder; the dark, hallucinatory grind of Lorna Doone. You can hear echoes of ELO, 10CC, Fleetwood Mac and Supertramp rubbing up against the band’s own idiosyncratic, very British, occasionally rather creepy psychedelic sensibility.

,p>Serotonin sees the band team up with legendary producer Chris Thomas (responsible for Pulp’s Different Class, John Cale’s Paris 1919 and The Sex Pistols’ Never Mind The Bollocks).

HASH(0x9efebe94) out of 5 stars Everyone should have heard of the Mystery Jets Dec 11 2012
By sageinprogress - Published on Amazon.com
This band continues to evolve, and impresses in every incarnation. This album has a bit of southern flavor but is still written from this band's unique musical point of view. Blaine, the main vocalist, has a beautiful voice and imbues the songs with soul and honesty. There is another guy who sings lead vocals sometimes, usually on the less emotional and more poppy songs, which are also great listening. Standout tracks include "You Had Me at Hello," which is sexy and melancholy at the same time, "The Hale Bop," in which the boys temporarily transform into the Bee Gees, "The Nothing," simple and pensive and beautiful, and "Lost in Austin," the most cathartic song on the album. If you ever have the chance to hear this one belted out live, you'll be lucky indeed. This album casts a slow spell, and the more you listen, the more you'll find you don't want to stop listening. Check out their older work, too. It's different, but also very good.

...and they wear it on their lyrical sleeves. Their 4th album in about 8 years, they are growing musically, delineating from the early/mid 00s sound of England. Not as much dancey stuff, but the songs DO translate when seeing live. Always fun to see a foreign point-of-view of American life and how it wears-off on them. In this instance, they do their humble best to channel the slide guitar of days gone by, and while some tracks are stronger them others (obviously), as an overall work, its sharp. And it's at a cheap price, so buy it!
HASH(0x9c2f66e4) out of 5 stars Greatest Hits April 10 2013

Although I've found their previous albums very catchy and just as amazing, this one stands out with its western Americana theme that conjures a lazy but relaxed day out in the desert. "Take Me Where the Roses Grow" stands out the most for me with its lovely instrumentation. Overall, this was a great purchase since there aren't any stores around here that carry Mystery Jets on the shelves.

I love this cd. Has a good variety and love the interchange of some acoustic guitar with electric.if you want something you can play over and over where every song isnt the same this is a must!
There earlier stuff seems more pop, but the lyrics are profound. And imagine a british band with an americana/texas type vibe.

"Greatest Hits" is the only song that really stands out. I will remember this band based on the strength of this song alone. Some good song writing and lackluster production. This band has some clever videos, none of which really translate here on and album.
I also like "Sister Everett" and "The Nothing".
