The Jimmy Cake are a band from Dublin, Ireland. In 2003 they were set to be huge, taking up festival slots ahead of the likes of Snow Patrol, BellX1, Har-Mar Superstar and the Futureheads. And since then we havent heard a single thing from them. This was because they were not a band per-se. More an amalgamation of musicians from around the city who had one goal, to create a masterpiece! The band ended up consisting of 10 members but no singer. The album contained 8 tracks which all ran into each other like a single 40minute song. if your wondering what they sound like, think of Muse without any singing and with more variety.

The fact is that there is not a single word uttered on this album. It is just music, with no vocals to 'dilute' it.
Overall Impression — 10
This is an amzing album. It must have taken ages to record and produce it. Some of the stand-out tracks include 'Dead Fall Priest', 'Limestone Tiger', 'The Width Of The Black' and 'Wir Schlaffen Auf Dem Boden'. It's a pity that this was only a once off project because it was an amazing album. If you like Muse or The Mars Volta you should check this out.
