    Jale's utterly infectious So Wound is a manic pop thrill, a superb collection of sweet-and-sour songs laced with wit, intelligence and poignancy. Crisply produced by Brad Wood, the record's 14 tracks (13 listed, one bonus) are fresh and sassy, combining the sweet harmonies and gleaming songcraft of the girl-group era with post-punk attitude and edge; while each song is a gem, the chiming "All Ready," the buzzing "Ali" and the snotty "Over You" are standouts. ~ Jason Ankeny

  • Critic Reviews
    Entertainment Weekly (6/7/96, p.61) - "...The songs, addressed mostly to unworthy lovers, break no new ground, but jangly hooks and off-center harmonies are played with breezy charm and enthusiasm." - Rating: B+
    Option (9-10/96, p.114) - "...endlessly more assured than its predecessor. SO WOUND is a sweet--but never cloying--pop record that showcases Jale's bright harmonies and ability to effortlessly turn a phrase..."
    NME (Magazine) (6/15/96, p.49) - 7 (out of 10) - "...Jale display more than a passing knowledge of...Perfect Pop.....the hazy harmonies...are so...kissable..."
