Most like: The View. Most unlike: MIA.

  • “Decent riff – why him?” (4)

  • “Needs dictionary, fresh ideas” (5)

If you dislike Just Jack…

  • ….you are much more likely to prefer club nights to gigs.
  • ….you are much less likely to think of yourself as indie.

If you like Just Jack…

  • ….you are much less likely to usually know what the #1 single is.
  • ….you are more likely to think hip-hop is in a creative rut.

    ha ha ‘just jack’ is for people who hate pop and think hip-hop has gone rubbish i.e. mostly Old Carter USM fans. I can’t hear the difference.

    I think the iron laws of statistics have come good on this one tho – the View is a good spot.

    Yeah I woz trollin’. Although I think I only bought the Carter because your NME recommended it. I have tried to relisten to Carter but it doesn’t move me — was still tempted by that Academy gig though, mostly for old times’ sake (me and m*rk h*nderson at the astoria together!!)

    Just Jack = The View = so absolutely PROVEN BY SCIENCE = all science ever should be done by FT focus group.
