Mystery Jets album Twenty One is wholesome straight good pop/rock. “Two Doors Down” is as straightforward and catchy as it gets but the vocals stay with you long after the song finishes. “Flakes” is something else – I just kept playing this song long after the album finished craving to hear it one more time which is extremely unusual for me.

I can’t explain why this album resonates so much with me, but whatever it is this has it.

For a bit of music trivia, this album was produced by electro powerhouse Erol Alkan. I have no idea how he came to produce this album as it doesn’t seem to fit with anything else that he has done, but he is a man who always looks for polish and finish and I hope that is his influence over this album.
