Rated:A Kind of Magic
'Jinx' is the second album from this American band which for 3 years of distanc, between both releases, the band hasn't evolve much. With the band first album the comparisons with bands like My Bloody Valentine,Joy Division,Ministry and The Cure were swift but to update that Tame Impala's sound is more similar nowadays, so maybe Weekend was the original Tame Impala but just didn't got all the attention back in 2010.
Not revolutionary or really adventurous this album accomplish to be good and to be a nice follow up to it's predecessor. What this album has a lot more is rock-punk and drama and lyrics. The album has plenty of energy and has a dance vibe that comes from a beautiful blend of soft melodies and hard beats, although a bit melancholic.The sound goes decreasing but then it breaks in joy an power. At some point it could becamo boring because is the same formula for every song but not like to turn it off because it has a little charm that keeps you kind of enjoying.
