After three independently released studio albums, this self-titled record is the major-label debut of German punk rock band Jupiter Jones. The quiet melancholy of its first single, "Still" (number ten in Germany, number four in Austria), is somewhat misleading, as the album features only one other ballad ("Berlin") -- the rest of the album is fast-paced indie rock, with a few synthesizers, strings, organ, and banjo added for some variety. The Wolfgang Stach-produced record peaked at number 14 in the German album charts.
