    Shine On is "new old rock" at its finest. [Nov 2006, p.136]
  2. Uncut
    80
    With Shine On, Jet manage to establish a common ground between Badfinger and AC/DC. [Nov 2006, p.110]
  3. If you get a kick out of glorious, ragged old rock'n'roll, then you'll consider it essential.
  4. Shine On is a good album that avoids the sophomore slump, but has enough moments of rote rocking to make the next record a worrisome prospect.
  5. Entertainment Weekly

    Mostly forgettable. [6 Oct 2006, p.68]

    This isn't as good as Get Born, but it's good. Very good. Jet is the modern day Beatles. Simple as that.
    The title track is good, and Rip it

    The title track is good, and Rip it up is a sleeper track.

    I liked these guys much better when they were called Iggy and The Stooges.

    I dig it. Simple, yes, but I did not expect a reinvention of the wheel purchasing a Jet album.
