Kerrang! Reviews 'Once Like A Spark' - KKKK

"Leaves you gasping for breath and rushing to join the cause. Brilliant"

As accolades go 'masterpiece' isn't one to be handed out lightly, but 'Zero For Conduct', Jetplane Landing's stunning debut album thoroughly deserved the superlatives and full five Ks dished out to it. The good news is that its follow-up is brimming with the same passionate, heartfelt intensity that made their first record so essential.

'Once Like A Spark' is a harder-edged, more caustic affair than its predecessor, but equally as thrilling. Opener "The Violence" sets the tone for the record: a powerful fusillade of angular guitars, tight rhythmic thrusts and anguished vocal attack, all propelled along with a sense of breathless urgency that leaves you gasping for breath and rushing to join the cause. Brilliant.
