Product Description

BBC Review

The Yeah You’s – London-based duo Mike Kintish and Nick Ingram – could be massive. That’s chart-topping, world-touring, first-dance-at-a-wedding massive. All they need to do is get their quality control filter sorted and bingo, dreams come true.

Looking Through You places its finest, sing-along-friendly moments at the start of its 11-track duration, and subsequently seems a lot less interesting when the comparative filler material surfaces. 15 Minutes and Getting Up With You are superb modern pop arrangements, taming the quirky exuberance of Mika and combining a seemingly natural flair with super-size vocal hooks that have The Feeling sounding like classic krautrockers Faust. 15 Minutes’ examination of fleeting fame, ironically the song that introduced the pair to the world, might possess little lyrical originality, but its soaring chorus is melt-in-the-mouth (ears?) succulent. Getting Up With You, meanwhile, could be a lost Keane track, one that fell behind the desk when the East Sussex trio were sequencing their Hopes & Fears debut. 

Dive In – track eight – is an example of The Yeah You’s operating at a level some distance below the height achieved by the aforementioned hits. Reggae-lite guitar work acts as the spine for a succession of dull couplets and primary school metaphors, and while the song’s sentiments – to keep fighting, against whatever it is that needs to be battled – may be pure, the end product is a faded black-and-white Xerox of its makers’ bets efforts. The ballads here – If Only I’d Said Hello and Carry Me Home – don’t particularly engage either. Imagine Gary Barlow and friends belting them out and they work, but The Yeah You’s seem more comfortable when they’re keeping things upbeat.

Which they do brilliantly on Ready to Love Again – think Queen covering Abba, as covered by a cheesy Eurodance group who, in turn, have had their take transformed by Muse after Matt Bellamy’s munched his way through several bags of Skittles. You don’t so much taste the rainbow, as have the rainbow gatecrash your house party with a load of spiked punch and force you to down pint glasses of the stuff. It’s a multi-faceted romp, and showcases an ambition that could see The Yeah You’s become the pop world’s version of the Flaming Lips.

There’s that word again: ‘could’. A little tweaking, some minor modifications, and album two could be something pretty special. The groundwork’s already laid. --Mike Diver

Just when it looked like British feel good music was going down the old Swannee again along come Nick and Mike - The Yeah Yous - to remind us of what great pop music can sound like. "15 minutes" wasn't a bad tune (even though I thought it was McFly first time I heard it!) but "Waking Up With You" is a much better representation of what these boys are capable of. Excellent harmonies,songs that go off in direction you just didn't see coming and an all round feel good factor that has you singing along in no time. Particular stand-outs are "Clifftop" and "It's Happening To Me" along with the two singles. Really encouraging to hear proper "pop" - I hope these guys are destined for great things!

First of all let's get the negative stuff out of the way. I'm a HUGE fan of this album but have to agree with the last reviewer about the electro-cheese in places, especially Ready to Love Again. Despite this, it's an outstanding first effort from the Yeah You's (does their name really need an apostrophe?). The melodies are consistently inventive, the textures inspired, and the harmonies on every chorus are simply majestic. The CD is now welded into my car's player and I never tire of playing it endlessly.
In short, a complete and polished gem amongst the pap that passes for music nowadays.

This is a fantastic album, it just gets better and better the more times you hear it. I've recommended it to everyone! It is the favourite album of all my family, even my husband demands the CD to listen to in his tractor! Well worth the purchase.

Having heard the first 2 singles from this album being pushed by Radio 2 in the run-up to its release, I took a chance and bought the album and have to say I am not in the slightest bit disappointed. It kicks off with the 2 commercial releases, 15 minutes and Getting Up With You, but these are just the start of what is to come.

It's the kind of album that you can put on and leave on, with no need to skip tracks. For me, the absoultely stunning 'Clifftop' is the out-and-out highlight of the album - just try and not be singing along with the catchy chorus after your 3rd or 4th listen.

It's simple, it's easy to listen to and it puts a smile on my face.

Buy it.

11 beatiful songs that I can listen over and over and over again, all nicely written and brilliantly played!
"15 minutes", "Won't Be Long", "If It All Runs Out" and "Carry Me Home" are definitely my favorites, but other seven are by no means worse, each of them is great and has its own mood and meaning. By the way, there is also equally good 12nd bonus track called "Life's Forgotten Soldier", which is not on this CD but can be found somewhere on the internet, I believe.

As a bonus, lyrics book inside the jewel case looks really stylish, so if you're into this genre, this thing must be on your bookshelf (or whereever you store your CD cases) ;)

I heard part of "15 Minutes" on American Idol last night, and once I did some research and found out who did the song, I was very dissapointed to find out it wasn't available on iTunes Canada. So I ordered it from Amazon.ca. After listening to the samples on Amazon.co.uk, and only the samples, I realized that they just might be my favourite band. And at 48, it's harder to find bands I like. I love the vocal harmonies mixed with the rock. Extrememly well done. Now I can't wait to get the cd.

The YeahYou's (apparently now called Madfox) are a band I stumbled upon by accident: I've never seen them featured on TV on those awful "...and it just so happens we have an album out today!" self-promotional 'interviews', and I can't even quite remember how I discovered their music. But I'm glad I did.

For a two-piece they produce a surprisingly full sound: I assume they play all the instruments themselves, and none of the parts lacks any noticeable skill. Their sound is poppy and upbeat, and undoubedly their trademark feature is their rich blend of harmonies - usually around a particularly high-pitched melody. Unfortunately, this unique feature is also the reason I've not given 5 stars: despite there being a fair amount of variety in their style of songs, their insistence on a super-tenor melody supported with copious choral backup starts to feel a little overused.
