|This is not JJ's weakest album -- that would be
"The Hit List" (which is still worth giving a listen, actually) -- but it's
not that close to her best, either.
That said, getting backing from the Beach Boys on "Fun Fun Fun" was a stroke
of genius, another Jett version of "Roadrunner" is always welcome, "This
Means War" isn't bad...
And the title cut is Incredible! If "Good Music" was the only listenable
cut among a mass of repulsive garbage, this CD would still rate at least
Joan and the Blackhearts know the history of rock'n'roll, and they demonstrate
that fact here, with a quick musical tour of the genre that reaches a conclusion
that i reached some time ago -- "I'm a little messed up, but I could be all
right if I could hear a loud guitar all night!"
Long Live Good Music!
Long Live Joan Jett!
