Can't seem to stop listening to it.

"Having heard and read stories about Gun Club for years, I was somewhat disappointed the first time I actually went and listened to one of their albums, Fire of Love. They seemed so universally respected and yet enigmatic, that I'd expected great fireworks which never really appeared. Then one day I downloaded songs off the JLP solo album, Wildweed. A used copy of Mother Juno found its way into my hands soon after. By this point, something had clicked. I'm not sure what it is about Jeffrey Lee Pierce's songwriting that grabbed me, but all of a sudden I was hooked. Maybe its the way his personality seems to burst out of every song, I don't know. Mother Juno is probably the best example of this among all of the Gun Club material I've listened to to date. While the music never seems revolutionary or extraordinary, the singing and lyricism are first rate. My personal favorite track on the album is Breaking Hands, but I've grown to embrace the album as a whole now. It still mystifies me the way their songs have struck a chord in me, but I no longer wonder what all the fuss was about. Yay for Gun Club."
Masterpiece!

"The best Gun Club album ever! Listen to "Hearts" where Jeffrey Lee Pierce's lyrics will make you cry! A pity that such a musician died so young and so much ignored by the music system. One of the best albuns i have ever heard."
Oh Yellow Eyes..........................

"I remember being on college in the 80's and staying up till sunrise with my friends listening to "Yellow Eyes" over and over and over again. Mother Juno warants 5 stars based on that song alone, but you also get the rip roaring "Bill Bailey" and "Lupita Screams" among others. Truly trancendent rock & roll. I did not know that Jeffrey Lee Pierce had died until now. Circumstances seem strange, but I was not suprised. Sad but true that some of the greatest art is made by tortured souls who flame out like shooting stars, rather than ration their energy and stick it out for the long haul. Rock on Jeff....."
