Title - 'From Greens to Eternity' (3 Nutz)
Artist - The Voodoo Jets

The Voodoo Jets' new CD, 'From Greens to Eternity' is the sophomore release from this acclaimed pop trio - and by far, BY FAR, leaves their debut in the dust ... musically!

Kicking off with the generic rock/blues 'Cry,' it's the second, more restrained track 'Welcome to the Real World' that truly gets this album off to a great start. And sure, there's an essence of a sound gone by in their music ie: a restrained Axel (GN'R), but they've added their own twist to that sound. A progression of rock has arrived - and they know it.

'From Greens to Eternity' is bittersweet for the band, as after a lot of hard work, not only is it the second full-length release, but the first since the passing of drummer, John Fowler. Indeed, this CD features 6 tracks recorded with Fowler, who passed away in 2008.

Containing 13 tracks, not to mention a fantastic, inspired cover of Smokey Robinsonís 'The Tears of a Clown' and 2 live tracks, the new album does bear striking similarities to the mid-90's grunge scene - albeit the latter edge of that genre.

'Calm Before the Storm' ends with some guitar work that I know I know and yet cannot lay my mental finger on, but that aside, the Foo Fighters-influenced 'Let It Rain' is just great to crank up and work around the house/office to!

Francesco Perrouna's raspy vocals lend themselves perfectly to these tracks, one and all, even if he does sound like Steven Tyler on 'Hotel' at one point! 'Smile' is a great, Buckcherryish track, but it's 'Cartoon' that may well be the entire album's stand out track!
