21st Studio Album On 180g Vinyl LP!

Fool is the 21st studio album from Joe Jackson, including two soundtracks - 1983's Mike's Murder and 1988's Tucker Soundtrack. Jackson has received 5 Grammy nominations throughout his career.

The Artist Joe Jackson is one of the most unique musicians in British pop history. Coming out of the punk musical revolution, he immediately got noticed for his skill in combining raw energy, great taste and dislike of stereotypes. Joe Jackson and his band appeared on the British music scene just after the punk revolution with iconic records like “Look Sharp!” (containing the hit “Is She Really Going Out With Him”) and “I’m The Man” (containing the hit “It’s Different For Girls”). Later on during his career, Jackson was not afraid to mix other influences like jazz, classic and Latin music to his original sound (in albums like “Body And Soul” or the masterpiece “Night and Day”). Never repeating himself, Joe Jackson has always pleased his devoted fans with albums where his intelligent lyrics were supported by great musical ideas, a coherence that made the five time Grammy nominee one of the most respected and admired artists of our time.

The "Fool" once again showcases Jackson’s incredible musical diversity and unique artistic vision. If the album had a theme, it would be Comedy and Tragedy and the way they’re intertwined in our lives. The album begins with the powerfully mysterious “Big Black Crowd”, which foreshadows an album that is impossible to describe in one word but undoubtedly musically and lyrically powerful and touchingly beautiful. The striking “Fabulously Absolute” shows a different side of the album with Jackson portraying an almost snarky attitude in his voice and the music showing a very melodic drive. Despite what the title may suggest, none of Joe Jackson’s remarkable songwriting, although multi-facetted, does in any way sound foolish. It is rather a sense of masterful craftsmanship and intent that defines “Fool”. The listener will find jazz, classic and – of course – pop influences that fuse to make an artistically valuable as well as entertaining experience. Joe Jackson celebrates 40 years of being a recording artist.

"Just like the jester in the hard-driving title tune, Fool suggests a world-weary tragicomedy of a singer / songwriter who, more than most of his post-punk and new wave peers, remains relevant. With his inimitable voice and indelible pop melodies, Jackson is still, at age 64, a pop music original." - Dan Oullette, The Absolute Sound, May/June 2019
