Jet - OK (1998)Jet give us with "OK", their second full length album, a set (oooh rhyme!) of delicate, minimalist electro-house that is deceptively simple, but after several listenings you're bound to hear the depth of all the sounds. This is the kind of electronic music where a beat is never merely a beat: it's always made up of several layers of basses and pads. The same goes for most of the sounds on this album. They all have this plastic feel to them (xtc?), warm and lush and unusually melodic, sweet and soothing to your ears and your mind if you still have one. Great production value, this release, you can surely hear that! Some tracks are chilled out, others heavier and faster; in my opinion, this is superb party album and a late night chill out album. It's even nice for a rainy Sunday afternoon playing backgammon. Intelligent love music with a very positive vibe, highly suitable for low and high level playing, and as I just remembered, really nice for driving a car, too.
