Volume 4 (2003)

EW's GRADE
C

Details Release Date: Mar 11, 2003; Lead Performance: Joe Jackson Band

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the recording of his debut, Look Sharp!, the nonpunk who's spent a quarter century disowning his punk-era vehemence reunites his band and puts out...a clutch of impeccably played but barren pop songs. Included is a bonus six-song live CD that climaxes with this package's sole moment of unambivalent pleasure: his old punk homage ''I'm the Man.'' Some guys never learn their own strengths.
