|The Jam – All Mod Cons: 3.5 starsPrecon: Never heard of them. A Phish cover band?
Favorite Track: Billy Hunt (kickin’est) Mr. Clean (belongs in an 80’s movie) David Watts (good but a cover) Down in the Tube Station at Midnight (good story) To Be Someone (good chorus)
I have a feeling this is another one of those “you gotta see em live” bands. The album is decent to good for the most part but is also tame and generic at times. Diet punk is a good way to describe it. Maybe it didn’t sound that way 30+ years ago, and it doesn’t even have to be a bad thing, but I just spent most of the time wishing they would kick it up a notch.
