Jul 3, 2014When you see Jungle live, it takes very little provocation for them to extend their songs into euphoric, funk-laden, instrumental prang-outs that mesmerise your mind’s eye. Unfortunately, the album lacks a little of that psychedelic deviation, and instead chooses to quite politely proffer 11 great and concise songs, with a whistling instrumental mid-point.
Jul 10, 2014Jungle is a polished debut, but there’s no sense that J and T (or whoever is actually singing here) feel any sort of commitment to their lyrics, their arrangements, or anything beyond producing neatly packaged songs that slide them into festival slots.

It's not exactly reinventing the wheel but Jungle has that ability to take you on a journey and not many groups do that these days. Especially on a debut album!
The album flows well, at times too well and if I was a cynic I'd say some of the tracks sound alike but......
Listening to Jungle is like chewing fudge that melts in your mouth. If your into your tunes and enquiring if Jungle are worth the investment then the simple answer is yes they are.
