KJWANS LATEST ALBUM: 2StepMarv
« on: December 12, 2006, 10:26:32 PM »
Hello Everyone!

We just got our new album "2 Step Marv" out in stores last November 6! For those who have bought it please post your opinions here!

For those who aren't familiar with the band please check out our website http://kjwan.net where you can stream some of the new tracks and update your self with skeds, profile etc.



I would really appreciate it if "hate" posts would be constructive. (i.e. how do you think the band should improve musically, with the style etc. or like how you wish the band should have executed the new songs etc.)

Thats all! thanks everyone for the read and space! :)

i really dont know much about instruments and blah blah blah but i love the album. gustong gusto ko na talaga ang kjwan from the 1st album(at si Moronic MAKMAK from <s> pa) anyway, nung 1st album kasi may ibang kanta like slip na parang naiisip ko na pwede tong ipasok sa <s> album(kahit mejo OP cia dun, pwedeng ijustify), pero sa 2 step, may sariling solid tunog na kayo at esp Moronic MAKMAK, and i really dig ang bass lines ni KELLEYBOYH hahah :D anywho... i cant really go reviewing each song ngaun cause im lazy like that. :D heheh maybe bukas. pero kanina pinakinggan ko both albums and cant wait for the third.(my mom's making fun of the way makmak said lihim like leeeeeeee HEM... hahaha) :D


i <3 u too jorel haha and your monster egotrips sa 1st album haha.. sana iaccept mo na ang invite ko sa multiply heheh :D i <3 kjwan so mucho you knowo.  :mrgreen:


PS: you are so goooooood live, i dunno ha. i really cant tell bout the instruments, how clean each was excecuted blah blah kasi di ko namn talaga alam heheh. pero i like you(kjwan) like that. and my god, the intensity. i so love you. ima go rent you out on my debut yey!

I love your 2nd album! It's very eclectic, but still true to the band's identity.

Aside from "Pintura", another fave is "Can't do that". Sooo sexy...

Love the new album. A very versatile one.
One minute I'm hearing heavy crunching riffs then suddenly you'll be warped into an almost jazzy funk(ish) tune.
I hear a lot of different styles in here which is good, no..., rather great. The album doesn't bore you out.

Got to say I like better you're slow driving songs like Can't Do That, Shai and Focus.

great album! i personally liked the first album more but the good thing is, 2stepmarv is not a rehash of the previous one. it's a rocking record on its own. more power to your band, Jorel! :)
