Homeless J

Three Seconds to Gaze
Artwork

This competent debut on the Nashville based Christian rock label Selectric, ably combines the modern hard rock crunch of Jane’s Addiction with the more commercial tendencies of U2. Dropped by MCA in 2003 as a result of financial difficulties within the imprint label, Indiana outfit Homeless J-The ‘J’ means Jesus-eventually found favour with Selectric who have basically resurrected the album. There’s a Bono style vocal on the hooky ‘Beauty Boy’, ‘To Uona’ whilst ‘B-Fly’ with its unusual “under water” chorus is more reminiscent of Simple Minds. Indeed vocalist Chad Vanmeter rarely escapes from this comfortable vocal style throughout the eleven tracks on offer, highlighting a plus point or a major Achilles heel depending on your viewpoint.
