No.5173

GAJOOB Review by Bryan Baker:

“Days of Spirit/Days of Spit comp.” by Jacques Limón is a sonic rollercoaster that keeps listeners on the edge of their seats. Released in 2019, this compilation album is a heady mix of heavy guitars, teetering metres, melodic dissonance and shouting vocals, making for an exhilarating auditory experience.

From the moment you press play, it’s evident that Jacques Limón has been influenced by bands like Red Hot Chili Peppers, Presidents of the United States of America, and Violent Femmes. The album carries the raw energy and distinctive sound of these groups, yet Jacques Limón manages to infuse his own unique spin into the mix.

The album opens with a bang, immediately drawing listeners in with its heavy guitar riffs and energetic rhythm. The teetering meters add a sense of unpredictability to the music, keeping you guessing as to where the songs will go next.

However, it’s the shouting vocals that truly set this album apart. They inject a raw, emotional intensity into the music, giving each track a palpable sense of urgency. It’s this unfiltered expression of emotion that makes the album so captivating.

Yet, despite its intense sound, “Days of Spirit/Days of Spit comp.” never feels overwhelming. Instead, the album maintains a balance between its high-energy moments and its more subdued ones, creating a dynamic listening experience.

Jacques Limón’s “Days of Spirit/Days of Spit comp.” is a bold and exciting album that showcases the artist’s ability to create music that is both raw and refined. It’s a must-listen for fans of alternative rock and anyone who appreciates music that isn’t afraid to push boundaries.
