A nice single, if you ask me.|
Live, Groep Jezus has its exciting moments as well as its average ones, but on this single they show they’re capable of making some really nice music- autumn music as they call it themselves.
All three tracks have certain qualities to them- and they don’t sound like any other band either. There’s no guitar involved (only a bass guitar), which means the sound is defined for the most part by the keyboards and sax. The tracks are pretty good, but I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again- I miss some tension!! It’s all fairly sober, ‘calculated’ if you will. I'd prefer to hear a more 'edgy' sound.
Then again, I suppose Groep Jezus simply play a style I’m just not too keen on. Eitherway, some reactions I heard and read were very harsh on them- which I don’t think they deserve. If everyone would take a look beyond their sometimes average live act, and listened to this single instead, they’d realise Groep Jezus has the potential to become great.
