The Jam “This is the Modern World”

This one is also from 1977– they were cranking them out. There is a really good back cover picture– the band playing live. And a good picture on the cover, them standing there, looking really young, but then again, older. The drummer has a cigarette between two fingers.

This one is a little more poppy than the first, and more arty– but pretty much the same– high energy, high intensity. Again, I like the poppy stuff more now than when I was younger. There is a good cover of “In the Midnight Hour.” It’s the standout song, for me.

I’m kind of unexcited about any of the songs upon listening to it, but I listen again and the last four songs just really connect with me: “Here Comes the Weekend,” “The Combine,” “Tonight at Noon,” and “Don’t Tell Them You’re Sane.” So I listen to it over several times. Very exciting– this is the most fun I’ve had listening to The Jam in SEVERAL DECADES!
