Product Description

Product Description

Second studio album by the English alternative rock group. The album debuted at '19 in the UK Albums chart and features the singles 'Bones' and 'Learn My Lesson', which was named by BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe as his 'hottest record in the world' on 13th October 2011.

BBC Review

With the release this week of Van Halen’s surprisingly impressive comeback album, A Different Kind of Truth, many an ageing rock fan has been reflecting that rock stars are no longer made as once they were. And while the image of David Lee Roth springing around a stage with tongue in cheek and one leg 180 degrees above his head is tough to beat, older listeners are often too quick to damn and dismiss young bands who emerge in their own middle age.

Last year Young Guns performed their largest headline show to date, an evening at the 2,000-capacity Forum in London’s Kentish Town. It was the biggest night of their professional lives, and when the stage lights broke (and remained broken for the rest of the evening) so too did the headliners’ hearts. But faced with this calamity, frontman Gustav Wood led the band through an hour’s worth of music that could be heard even if the group could not be seen; with single-handedness and single-mindedness he saved the night. In doing so, and without knowing it, he marked out his group as ones to watch.

Bones is a fiery yet melodious modern rock album made by a band who may come to regret their name should they survive to become old hands. The quintet’s songs are built from the beat up – it’s not difficult to imagine their drummer attacking his kit like a monkey at a salad bar – but atop such emphasis sits many a strong chorus and a good deal of high production values.

This last quality is, though, both one of Bones’ strengths and one of its weaknesses. Young Guns find themselves in a meat market crowded with many similar groups, all of whom have a keen eye for a chorus and a strong sense of modern technology. Of those Auto-Tuned to the nines, not all from a class that includes You Me at Six, The Blackout, Deaf Havana and Kids in Glass Houses (to name only a few) will survive for even the medium, let alone the long haul.

Whether or not Young Guns have the stamina, talent and charisma to outlive the cull is not a question fully answered by the music made here.

After the recent spate of my favourite bands releasing slightly disappointing albums I was a little anxious that this album would be a disappointment as well.

I needn't have worried.

This whole album is filled with brilliant songs, even the interlude is a stand up track that I really enjoy listening to.
Starting with a powerful opening track "I Was Born, I Have Lived, I Will Surely Die" you find many fast-paced anthems and slower but equally powerful tracks.

Not only is this album excellent musically but the songs all have really good lyrics, (which I won't spoil for you here) which is something we really need in the dark days of Bieber-fever

Favourites;
I Was Born, I Have Lived, I Will Surely Die
Towers (On My Way)
You Are Not

This album definitely step up and presented Young Guns's talent as both songwriter and musician at their finest. There are many powerful, strong tracks with catchy choruses on the record such as "Bones", "Learn My Lesson", "Headlights". Even the slower tunes such "You Are Not", "Everything Ends", "Broadfields" are well written and favourable. If you like stadium rock and anthem vibes this album is for you, if you don't, it doesn't matter, you will still love it as well, it's massive.

Young Guns are so underrated, they are absolutely perfect. They are legendary.
This album is perfect, it has the most catchy tunes and perfect lyrics.
If you enjoyed "All Our Kings Are Dead", you'll DEFINITELY enjoy this.

I recommend this to anyone that loves rock music.

This is the first I've gotten into YG, but I'm impressed with the sound. Good stuff!
The CD itself arrived in impeccable condition. I was very satisfied.

Bones by Young Guns is by far and away the best Alternative and Rock Album or 2012, every song has variety and style of hard rock fun which keeps you enjoying the album. Gustav, Ben and the others are a bunch of great lads and their next album will probs be even better.
