Knights and his duo partner, Gale Paridjanian, have never been considered the greatest lyricists, and while the somewhat improved prose on Jackinabox won't change that, the arrangements are much tighter than ever and cover up whatever lyrical deficiencies the charismatic, freewheeling attitude of the band doesn't. When they offer upbeat, infectious, neo-hippie numbers like the funky "Asleep With the Fireflies" (Jamiroquai for the acoustic set) or "Over and Over" (a playful, nearly cabaret song), the album excels and fits summery afternoons like a glove.

JackInABox is Turin Brake's follow up to the 2003's 180k (UK) selling album Ether Song, and the third of a recording career which also produced the 225k (UK) selling and Mercury Prize-nominated debut the Optimist LP. After recording Ether Song in LA, the band went back to the self-produced ethos of their debut, writing and recording the entirety of JackInABox at their own studio in Brixton. The result is JackInABox, a sunny and direct album, full of characteristically robust pop melodies and spine-tingling harmonies.

Turin Brakes separated themselves from similarly delicate UK bands Athlete and Travis by avoiding unvarying, schmaltzy vocals- and on the first parts of Jackinabox that distinction holds true. With its campfire cooing and rugged chord changes, "Red Moon" is Elliott Smith on Zoloft, climaxing with the excusably optimistic chorus "If you try, you'll be alright. However this formula exhausts itself on forgettable numbers like "Forever" and "Above the Clouds", where humdrum acoustic strumming and stagnant melodies form a stale film over Knights'.
Jackinabox is the third studio album by the British band Turin Brakes. Recorded in their own recording studio in Brixton during 2004, the album includes the singles "Fishing For a Dream" and "Over and Over". It is the follow-up to Ether Song. The album reached no. 9 in the UK charts in the first week, despite the fact that first single, "Fishing For A Dream", did not sell well (charting at no. 35). The album was also released with a bonus DVD and on vinyl
