A review of "We Rock" by Jimmy Jang

The mob-driven "stomp-stomp-clap" track is ripped right from Queen. The tight little guitar lines make me think of the post-human cyborgian sounds of Daft Punk. And, to top it all off, the singer has an old time, mountain voice that sounds somewhat like Ralph Stanley, and is singing about humanity and environmentalism "in the name of Mother Earth." This begins to describe the absolutely bizarre fusion that is "We Rock," by Cambridge MA's Jimmy Jang. "Only love can heal...we rock" echoes the hook, after a short instrumental breakdown of backup vocals and guitar that strike a sharp contrast to the minimalism of the verses. It's as if a jaded old Cotton Picker in a dystopian future got up in front of a sports arena and sparked up the fire of revolution. Not quite sure what to make of this song, but I love it.
