Burning Your House Down is a sultry collection of sinful barebones rock numbers that will satiate Nick Cave followers or those looking for a sound similar to Jerry Lee Lewis on a bender. It's only fitting that Burning, the second album from London's Jim Jones Revue, was produced by Jim Sclavunos (Bad Seeds, Grinderman), a man who knows how to harness the power of a moody, howling frontman. On tape Jim Jones stomps and stammers as if the dark lord himself has possessed the wild-eyed singer, so one imagines that he'll be even more impassioned when you see the man in the flesh. In fact, I'd wager my soul on it.
