NME Reviews 'Once Like A Spark' - 7/10

"A convincingly crunchy bid for the title of Number One UK Extremo Heroes 2003"

Northern Irish four-piece Jetplane Landing record their own albums in their own garage, book their own tours, release all their music on their own label, and very possibly pulp the paper to make the CD booklet with their own blistered hands. This approach bears varied dividends: yes, they enjoy total creative freedom, but they also enjoy total penury, too. Still, not having some creatively bankrupt major label A&R telling them to write more songs that sound like The Darkness means that 'Once Like A Spark' can make a convincingly crunchy bid for the title of Number One UK Extremo Heroes 2003.

7/10
