Review: Jesus Jones – Zeros and Ones (Industrial)

This review covers the industrial track Jesus Jones – Zeros and Ones.

This track was released in 1993 on the album Perverse.

The track starts with a synth. A secondary synth comes in. From there, a drumkit comes in. After that, the vocals come in for a first verse. A 303-like synth comes in towards the end of the track.

After that, the vocals take the track into the first main chorus. A subtle electric guitar comes in part way through.

From there, the vocals take the track into the next verse. There is a brief instrumental section before the vocals take the track into the next round in the main chorus.

In the next verse, the vocals are more emphasized. The subtle electric guitar makes a return in this section. After that, there is a short instrumental section.

From there, the vocals continue into the next verse. After that, the vocals take the track into the next round in the main chorus. At the end, the drum kit stops for a moment. After the drum kit makes a brief return, the synths then leads the track out.

The biggest strength in this track is the lyrics in my view. It basically predicts the dawn of the computer age which was already happening at the time, albeit in the early stages.

The vocals are also a pretty solid strength in this track. They continue that trademarked vocal style this band is known for, but expand it into a more gritty industrial track instead of the more pop style sound as heard in the previous track Right Here, Right Now. So, that is always nice to hear.

Meanwhile, the synths are alright. They aren’t the best synths I’ve heard, but they do get the job done in my view.

Overall, this is a pretty solid track. The lyrics are strong and the vocals here show their flexibility. The synths are OK, but nothing huge. So, an overall pretty solid track.
