  • Summary: 'Get Born' marks the debut of the Australian garage-rock quartet Jet.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 9 out of 15
  2. Negative: 1 out of 15
  1. Jet storm the new rock pack with the diverse appeal and catchy compositions. [Nov 2003, p.112]
  2. Jet has more fun with songs like "Cold Hard B****" than most bands do during their entire careers.
  3. The overall aesthetic is young, loud, and snotty. [17 Oct 2003, p.82]

    If this album had been released five years ago, it would've been a blast. Today, it's the same new same old. [Nov 2003, p.117]
  5. There's no denying the disc's unbridled energy, and those who pine for a return to the booze-fueled days of '70s rock must find immense pleasure in Get Born's finer moments.
  6. A quartet that lives, dies and drinks to Exile on Main Street.
  7. We sound like everyone's favorite old rock bands, we have insipid lyrics, we say 'Come On!' and 'Oh Yeah!' every five seconds, we have no discernable identity, and we're from Australia. What could people possibly dislike about us?

    I think this CD is one of the best that i've heard for a long time. Im happy that some bands are actually still upbeat and like to rock, instead of being so emo and punk. It's good to get back in touch with the old. Expand

    Finally, some good music comes out of the stagnant stream of others. They go through fast and slow songs, and rock the whole way through. With this album, Jet's future looks pretty promising. And it's only 9$, so what are you waiting for? Expand
