Heavy Harmonies Review|

|This 4-piece band from New Jersey has the right attitude! In-your-face, no-holds-barred rock and roll! This is Jester's 2nd effort, and while the freshman effort Tales From the Boogieman by no means a bad album, this album comes off sounding a bit more polished. For lack of a better term I'll classify them as bar rock, but they take it to the next level. There's nothing particularly innovative here musically, but lyrically there's some excellent songwriting (don't take that as a negative; what they do, they do extremely well, and they sound like they're having fun doing it). Throughout the album I am continually reminded of vintage Skid Row.|
Musically, this album is as solid as they come. The only place I can really find fault is with the production; it's a bit too "stripped back" in certain places. Rather than being a band that's put together a CD and is trying to carry it off live, I get the feeling this is a band that is used to playing live, and is now trying to carry the music into the studio. Then again, I could be all wet, and this is exactly the sound they're looking for; I'm biased, I tend to prefer a lusher sound (hey guys, add a fulltime keyboard player! . This is quite a good album, just needing a tad better production to make it a GREAT album. Considering that for all intents and purposes, Jester is not a national act (yet) nor has the backing (and funding) of a Sony, Epic, etc., they've done a mighty fine job!

|This is another ass kickin album from start to finish.Same hard, smash mouth melodic metal that has hook and groove,guitar riffs, pounding drums and that voice that could only come out of Jersey.This band is definately a must see if possible but if u can't see them you should definately buy the album,turn up the volume, and enjoy metal the way it should be--JESTER STYLE!!!!!

|Great, this is a must for the people who loves street sleaze hard rock. The style reminds me early Skid Row and Heaven's Edge. Believe me this cd kick ass. I bought this one together with their first cd "Tales from the boogieman".Two masterpieces at the price of one. I can't find my music anywhere, can't recognize my heroes with no hair. This is what Jester say about the situation of our favorite music. Keep the 80's alive like Jester do.

|Do these guys have another cd called It's Time?

|I believe that's a completely different band...

|Dan, what are they like?

|This is an album of heavy, modern and aggressive hard rock with lots of melodic harmonies that help make the album more accessible, rather than some releases that become too heavy or modern. Basically it's a nice balance that compares to a more modern rock version of Skid Row or other fellow American sleaze rock acts.

|I just can't get into this one as much as 'Tales'. I do like the lyrics to 'Enter You' a lot. 'Main Attraction' is pretty cool too. 6/10.

|A strong follow up to Tales from the boogieman but falls short. Still a very strong album but has maybe a few filler songs. Excellent axe work again and melodies. Standout track would be Radio, anything and everything, More than I know and rock in a hard place, have a listen to the hidden track really funny. Great band. Jay from Australia.

|The first song Digitalia is a horrible song and almost turned me off this cd. But the cd gets better from there if you liked Tales From The Boogieman you will like this cd. Radio is probabley the best fast song on the cd with Rock and a Hard Place a close second. Anything and Everything is a good ballet. Fans of glam metal and hard rock will enjoy this cd I give it a 8/10

|This one certainly didn't hit the mark as clearly as the debut for me, but in saying that it was still pretty damn close to that bullseye. Same style, and another great slab of hard rock. 'More than I know' and especially 'Give it back' are great ballads and 'Enter you' is a killer hard rocker. Overall, another pair of upraised thumbs for these guys.

|I like this one better than the first. Several songs stuck out (radio & rock and a hard place for 2) for me here while I can't remember any from the first release. Both cds are above average hard rock and worth picking up.

|Top melodick hard rock,maybe some poor arrangments sometimes but a great melodick impact indeed.Better also than the previous,9,5/10!

|Jester returns to show they weren't joking around when they released their stellar debut, following up with another smokin' slab of ballsy hard rock, this time backed with a slightly more modern production sound that in no way detracts from the band's melodic foundation; in fact, the extra beef 'n' balls actually lends this sophomore effort a tad more power than the debut, but that extra edginess sometimes comes at the cost of song accessibility (the debut was a little catchier). Still, these guys will rock your tails off.
