Not taking Johnny’s side as we don’t really know what happened there, but honestly those series of tweets don’t really make me root for his side of the story.

The most telling thing is Jewel's own statement, which says he's proud of his work with "the project" — not even "the band," just another Johnny Jewel project. That kind of thing could grate on anyone. (Especially since it wasn't his band to start with.)

(Not blaming Jewel for that, tbh I think of Chromatics primarily as a Johnny Jewel project too. But that plus dicking around forever with releasing/not releasing an album, it's not hard to imagine frustrations)

i have no idea about the other albums but the rest of the band all have writing credits on various kill for love tracks, so i'd guess the creative process was probably somewhat more collaborative than jewel has often implied

JJ definitely took over once he and Adam hooked up. Those first two Chromatics albums are DRASTICALLY different.

Dear Tommy is now Chinese Democracy 2.0

Glass Candy's Body Work has been teased for more than 10 years now but I don't think Johnny Jewel has said anything about it since like 2013. Would be much more excited to hear that than Dear Tommy at this point

This Madonna covers compilation is both unnecessary and mostly enjoyable.
