Jesu songs Product Information
Jesu album for sale by Jesu was released Jan 25, 2005 on the Hydra Head label. Named after the last track on HYMNS, the final Godflesh album, Jesu is a literal extension of singer/guitarist Justin Broadrick's pioneering industrial-metal work. (In fact, Jesu's line-up often includes latter-day Godflesh drummer Ted Parsons, formerly of Swans and Prong. ) While the British act's 2005 self-titled full-length outing can hew closely to the crushingly heavy Godflesh sound (see the ominous, rumbling "Your Path to Divinity" and the pummeling "Man/Woman"), the record takes that dark, chilly aesthetic and gives it a surprising degree of emotion and warmth, particularly on the slow, pensive "Tired of Me" and the shimmering "Sun Day," hinting at the dreamy shoegaze approach that Broadrick would pursue on subsequent Jesu releases. ...See Full Description

This album is without a doubt a work of layered and bleak yet uprising genius... Maybe Swans and the like made the mould back in the eighties.. But here it is, here moist and now. A modern take on both the beauty and sadness felt by everyone and everything. Play it to a sunrise..play it to a sunset.. Whatever. Just Listen and absorb. Essential for life.

A masterpiece. The most musical stuff on this planet. Heavy as hell. Light as wind. Fantastic minimalistic texts. Thousands of different sounds. Every song is the best, but the 2nd one "Friends are Evil" is nothing less than a miracle. Thank you Justin, you're a genius.

This cd is amazing,all what I want in my music. This guys blends Shoegazer(like my bloody valentine,slowdive type stuff),Drone( Boris,Pelican ),Doom,some Industrial in their music. Is so artistic and beautiful,yet heavy.One of the best I've heard. If u love slow music that create a whole world in your head buy this!!!

If you think Sigur Ros is a bit too "ordinary", Jesu is what you have been waiting for. I completely disagree with the anonmymous german who rates this at one star and says we donīt need it. This is an album that takes this genere one step further, and comparing this to the Swans must only have to do with the fact that Ted Parssons (drums) played with the Swans for a while in the 80īs.

Justin is at his best with Jesu. I had to listen to this cd about a dozen times, because i couldn't believe musically what he was doing. Its not that is complex its the sound and feeling he was getting its extremely intense. Justin must have gone thru some serious stuff in his life to put somethimg like this out.
