While I appreciate the acoustic version of this song, Cester’s voice got under my fingernails. A past roommate of mine could wipe the floor with this guy’s voice (in this instance). Vocals aside, its a great melody. I’d get all the fly hunnies after the youth group dance if I were to play this (assuming I was still in middle school).

this author doesn’t seems to comment on their other albums. Shine On and Shaka Rock are excellent albums that, while may be too catchy for their own good, are amazing conduits for listeners to appreciate rock and roll music as it used to be and as interpreted by JET. I love their music and will continue to rock out.
BFC: Nic’s voice is awesome when he’s doing the rough n’ gruff thing, ala Brian Johnson. But I’m not sure he can really pull off the sweet n’ smooth he’s going for here. I doubt that hurts his chances with the fly hunnies, though.
rondawg: Fair point. Admittedly, I don’t know Shaka Rock as well as Get Born and Shine On (I think Shine On is more or less comparable to Get Born). Also, to clarify – I’m a big Jet fan, but am trying to be realistic about their strengths and weaknesses.
But that’s just me. What do the rest of you think? Are the guys from Jet brilliant musical interpreters, or are they petty thieves?

I think a key point you mentioned about his voice is that it is not McCartney-esque. But just as Nic may not be the best for songs like For No One or Let It Be, Sir Paul is not my first choice to tell me about a “cold hard bitch”. Nic is a rock singer, his voice should be aggressive, he’s not a Beatle. I think we should applaud Jet’s music even if they’re not the most original band out there today.
