"The Svelteness of Boogietude is Brother JT's debut on Thrill Jockey and Bryon Coley (from whom he aquired the Brother JT moniker) called it his 'most oustanding effort yet.' The album is a typical of JT's output in certain ways -- rockers mixed with ballads, all of them crafted with causal elegance -- but there are new elements here as well. In particular, there's an attention to the legacy of later-period T. Rex, which results in tunes that kick total ass. Again Byron Coley, having seen Bolan play during his Zinc Alloy/Zip Gun Boogie period, went so far as to claim that 'JT's approach to this stuff equals that of the master -- huge riff-based anthems that balance glam dynamics with mystical history on the head of a pin.'"
