  1. jj's full-length debut is as easy to enjoy as whatever the last CD was you brought home with a giant cannabis leaf on the cover. They're as naive as they are cynical-- or is it the other stupid way around?-- and they manage to be pretty, touching, funny, and motivating, in different ways, in all the right places, for nine songs lasting 28 minutes.
  2. This level of quality is ridiculously hard to challenge, which may be part of the reason jj n° 2 has remained on the hipster tip despite that it isn’t very hip.
  3. jj have crafted a truly fascinating album and one of the best hidden gems this year
  4. jj n° 2 proves itself to be inexplicable in its origins and quite possibly a rare summer thing that’ll survive the post-August comedown and re-emerge in heavy rotation in late fall, when its sunny disposition will try its damnedest to win my heart and maybe even succeed.

    I can't believe no one has reviewed this album.. It's a breezy, catchy pop album with nice melodies and the odd sample to keep things a little off-beat. I still find myself going back to the first 3-4 tracks. Nice! Expand
