New wave pop revivalists the Adventures of Jet's debut album is filled with good but unrealized ideas. While their aesthetic - paranoid, new wave-influenced popsters with lots of insular lyrics - sounds great on the surface, most of the songs seem directionless and suffer from unrealized hooks.

Mixing the lighthearted keyboard work of new-wave pop with '90s style power pop, the Adventures of Jet create a style blending two vintages of pop. Sitting closer to power-pop with its heavy use of crunchy guitars, though exhibiting a strong sense of new wave roots, the band manages to find a fairly vacant niche to fill in the spectrum of pop.

And then along came the new album. From the very start, Insignificance comes across as yet another spit in the face, as O'Rourke's ever-steady voice intones the following: "Don't believe a word I say/ Never thought you would anyway/ I may be insincere/ But it's all downhill from here. Upon hearing this, I was furious. Which is a shame, because Insignificance sounds good. Sure, the arrangements are simpler and more rock-based than any of his previous efforts, bearing a resemblance to his production work with Smog, but not to any of his own material. Yet, again, O'Rourke proves himself to be an apt musical chameleon, every bit as adept at Elvis Costello-style rock songs as he is at more left-field arrangements.
This time from Germany. AGE OF INSIGNIFICANCE" contains 8 tracks, inspired by a hypocritical society in which the lie is heard more than the truth, a society where you will be put on the pranger if you stand for a different opinion, a society which is so fed up that they forgot where they come from.
