Jeopardy is the debut studio album by English post-punk band the Sound, released on 1 November 1980 by record label Korova. The album fared poorly commercially, but received critical acclaim. One single, "Heyday", was released from the album. Following their 1979 EP Physical World, the band started work on a full-length album. Impressed by the rough mixes, Korova signed the group.

Jeopardy is the first studio album by the Sound. Warner Brothers’ imprint Korova picked up the post-punk band on the merit of the demo cuts for what would become this album. The band recorded it in a single week on a shoestring budget, and it feels like it in the best of ways-each song plays like a live show, with no over-slick studio polishing to interfere with the immediacy of the performance. Urgent, anxious vocals, frenetic guitar, and driving drumbeats push this album right off the bat from the first song, and don’t let up until the end. While the album and its.

Yes Jeopardy, the band’s first release does simmer with energy, though how a music critic such as Devon Powers can make the claim that Jeopard. ursts with fresh energy while also maintaining a startling maturity and skill. And to Mr. Powers I said right out loud Really, startling maturity? Maturity is developed over time, these people were mere kids finding their footing, you’re overselling what might otherwise be a nice album, and that overselling is going to do nothing but force the release to fall short. And with all of that being said, I say to everyone, including myself, who has a vinyl copy of the album Jeopardy neatly tucked away, it’s still rather reasonable to purchase, meaning it’s not a treasure, it just is what it is, fun to listen to, but not to be taken as a religious artifact.

Jeopardy 08. Night Versus Day 09. Resistance 1. The Sound - All Fall Down (2001). Slighter - Legacy (2009-2011) (2014). Blanket Of Secrecy - Ears Have Walls (2013).

Not being overly familiar with The Sound, it was an interesting experience for me. Bands such as Echo and the Bunnymen and The Cure come to mind when listening to this album. Mainly because it does not exactly sound like them, but there are some strong similarities. I must say this album was somewhat enjoyable for myself. It brought back the nostalgia of teenage youth within the lyrics. Resistance, for example is a good example of the rebellious spirit we have as youth.

Hardly coattail jockeying, the Sound were developing and growing alongside them. If you're thinking this sounds like someone's telling you that you need Jeopardy just as much as you need Kilimanjaro or Unknown Pleasures or Crocodiles, you're right again.
