Unsigned the Magazine – Kingdoms Review

Austin, TX based Jet’s Under Fire music has been described as Christian music, but I’d like to think it’s more universal than that. It’s inspirational but in a totally non-boring way. ‘Kingdoms’ has plenty of rock sensibility and some darned good guitar riffs. No lie. Jason Poe’s delivery is subdued power. His voice sits on your pulse points and their traitorous thumps have no choice but to do his bidding. I would have liked to hear more drums on the CD. While great, I think more drums (at least at a louder level) would have kicked everything up a notch.

Soundcheck Magazine – Kingdoms Album Review

If your music collection is mainly comprised of artists you discovered by watching Vh1 and episodes of One Tree Hill, then Jets Under Fire’s Kingdoms will fit nicely between Keane and The Fray in your CD case. If you don’t consider Coldplay one of the greatest bands in the world, though, Kingdoms’ piano-driven rock will seem lacking. While it is well crafted, it lacks the experimentation, emotion and sincerity that make innovative music so appealing in the first place. If you’re one of these listeners, this CD won’t do much but take up valuable space on your ipod.

This critique doesn’t negate a simple fact, though: Jets Under Fire will be huge if the WB ever get its hands on a copy.
