"J Xaverre finally gets around to releasing his debut album, These Acid Stars. And what an eye-opener it is. Having gained his reputation blending electronica with his songwriting instincts, J Xaverre -- (aka former Kenickie drummer/guitarist/producer/songwriter type Johnny X aka Pete Gofton) -- has made an album several notches up from his previous lo-fi explorations. Self produced in parts, mixed by Dave Trumfio of Wilco and My Morning Jacket fame in others ('Great All Great' and 'Saturday') and collaborating with King Of Woolworths in others ('Ex-Wonderboy'), These Acid Stars ditches any notion of JX being solely an arbiter of lo-fi introspection. These are pop melodies enough to give Damon Gough a seizure, and epic moments, which recall anything from Mercury Rev to Grandaddy and Sparklehorse."
