Blood Visions, while not being my normal taste in music, showed me there was hope for pop music. Someone had finally "hit the nail on the head" as I put it in its review a few years back. Blood Visions,being such a perfect piece of music, made me nervous about picking up anything of Jay's after. There was no way to top BV in my mind.....I was wrong.

Watch me fall, along with the Matador collection '08, show Jay moving to even a more focused vision of his version garage punk. Talk about being a catchy! There isn't a single dud on this album. Comparable to Nevermind! The songs are very personal, sometimes soft and slow, but again as with BV still able to be undeniably edgy and punk. Focused and polished (in technique), not overproduced this album is a new classic.

Wish I would have followed Jay more closely. I am truly regretful that it took his death for me to start paying attention again and pick up this MONUMENTAL album. Even more so regretful that I missed that show because it was on a week night.
