Debut CDs are not normally this good. Honest. They might have a few decent tracks, well at least one anyway. But this is, as antiques guru David Dickinson might say, is a real Bobby Dazzler. 'Popularity' rocks on every level. Make no mistake, this is not your average band. Although they hail from the American South, Jonzetta rock like the New Young Pony Club, Frank Ferdinand and the Killers. Songs like "Communicate" and "Man In A 3K Suit" are not your average CCM tunes. Neither is "Backstabber" or "Get Ready (Hot Machete)". Jonzetta have got passion, originality and most importantly, a musical voice of their own. This CD really is full of decent tunes and anyone who likes rock music should check these guys out as soon as humanly possible. If bands like Newsboys think they have the market sown up, they should think again. I've seen the future and it sounds like Jonzetta. For those about to wave their hands in the air and rock, they salute you.
