    With their latest album SJDK give the people what they want, even if they didn’t know how much they wanted it.

    It’s Jones’ powerful, perfectly vibrato-laden voice that creates just the right of emotion for every break-up, hook-up, fed up and uplifting track on the barely 30-minute record.

    The best album of their career thus far.

    Give The People What They Want certainly lives up to its name, but it’s no rehash of the past--or a collection that panders.

    Their formula is a decade old but their soul is still all there. Actually, with this record they seem to have gone a little forward in their 1965-1970 time bubble. Its great feat is sounding so impressively sixties; but there are truly beautiful songs on this new record, one for all "Making Up and Breaking Up". Full Review »
