Shine On

Shine On is the second album by Melbourne rock band Jet, released in early October 2006. The title of the album was revealed on the band's website homepage.

On 23 September 2006, Triple J premiered the album on its Music Specials show along with interviews with the band. On 24 September 2006, Nova 100 played the entire album on the radio as a preview.

The second single, "Bring It On Back", will be released on 20 November 2006.[6]


NME first reported in June 2006 that the tracks *"L'espirit D'escalier", "Holiday", "Hey Kids" (for the U.S. version only), "Shiny Magazine", "Eleanor", and "All You Have To Do" were set to appear on the album.[7]

On October 2nd, 2006, music reviewing website Pitchfork Media, known to be very critical of the band, released a review of the album. It did not contain the usual numerical album rating, nor was there a textual review, rather the page simply displayed a YouTube video of a chimpanzee urinating in its own mouth.

"Hey Kids" was released on the Elektra soundtrack but the band liked it so much, they revived it for this album.

An article in Australian newspaper The Herald Sun includes information on the following songs:[citation needed]

  • "All You Have To Do":
Shine On (album)
The album will open and close with a track currently titled "All You Have To Do". "It was a difficult song to finish because we were trying to find the answer to the question and everything sounded cheesy.

  • "Eleanor"

Eleanor sounds like it's from the '40s.

  • "King's Horses"
Shine On (album)
There's one track, King's Horses, which is this nursery rhyme which talks a bit about the bitterness we felt over the past two years.

  • "Shiny Magazines"

And there's Shiny Magazines which has the Phil Spector vibe.

  • "Shine On"
Shine On (album)
The song "Shine On" was written by Nic to comfort his family after his father's death." "It was inevitable I would write a song that dealt with all of that, but it was almost too big a subject for me to handle," Nic says. "Then I got a phone call from my mum saying everyone was fucked so I wrote the song through Dad's eyes, what he would say to help everyone through. We recorded it in one take, but it was fucking emotional, very heavy. We couldn't be happier with this album.
