Jack sit somewhere between Tindersticks, Divine Comedy, and My Life Story on the spice rack of pop. Since 1995 they have released a batch of fine albums as both Jack, and sometimes as Jacques when they have enlisted the likes of Kirk Lake and Momus to conttribute. When their first album was released they looked like they would follow the Tindersticks glowing reviews into the lower reaches of the charts but alas it was not to be. Personally, my favorite album is still the first, "Pioneer Soundtracks" along with their first few singles. The first song today "Biography Of A First Son" comes from that album and was also a single, while Lolita Elle was the first single release from their second album "The Jazz Age"
