    The dozen tracks crackle with the energy of post-millennial British rock and the hook-lined swoon of the late-'80s British post-wave. [Sep 2011, p.120]

    It looks like Bruce Springsteen finally has some help defending Jersey's street cred.

    The Static Jacks retain much of the energy of punk, and a bit of the attitude, but their sound has a more polished pop tone to it.

    Unfortunately, the latter half of the album tapers off as the band fails to find a suitable landing place and the tracks begin to blur together.

    As infectious and riotous as If You're Young might well be, the inescapable reality is that the mass middle isn't walking over hot coals to buy this sort of music at the moment.

    New Jersey's The Static Jacks haven't got the most ambitious creative palette.
