5.0 out of 5 stars I love this album!! 23 Jan 2011
Format:Audio CD
So, I've been listening to 'Passive Me Aggressive You' for a couple of weeks now. In fact, since the CD arrived direct from the band's native New Zealand, I've barely played anything else.

The Naked And Famous have been compared to MGMT and Passion Pit. I have MGMT's albums and they're nowhere near as good as this. You find yourself listening to the first track saying 'This could be a single', then the next track starts and again you find yourself saying 'This could be a single'. Then the third track, then the fourth. They're all such high quality.

'Young Blood' was a big hit in New Zealand and it's easy to see why. 'Punching In A Dream', their first UK single is just as good. 'Young Blood' is seeing a release here in March 2010; If there's any justice, it will be a big hit here too. Judging by the fact that several dates on their forthcoming tour of small UK venues have already sold out months in advance, it looks like word's certainly got round.

It's fair to say that not too many people in the UK right now have heard of The Naked And Famous. Mind you, when I first started listening to Franz Ferdinand, nobody had heard of them either. However, by the end of 2011, I'm willing to wager that The Naked And Famous will be the name that's on everybody's lips.

By the way, check out the great video for 'Young Blood'. It's reassuring to see such a quality video matching a great song.

4.0 out of 5 stars Let's all calm down a bit. 3 Jun 2011
By Godfrey
Format:MP3 Download
Reading the reviews of this album on amazon ('beyond music!' 'the sound of 2011!') you'd be forgiven for thinking that The Naked & Famous were some combination of John Lennon, Dubstep and Jesus. Frankly though, I'm not concerned with the 'sound of 2011', only the sound of their music. This is a brilliant, solid, highly enjoyable album and they're already proving to be the biggest (and best) thing to come out of New Zealand for years (OK, that's not hard when the main competition is The Flight of the Conchords, but still). I listened to little else for days when I bought this album it's still more than decent six months later. Their sound, though not unique, is certainly distinctive and ideal for festivals (this album has 'Glasto' written all over it). It's not musically complex, or even ridiculously catchy, but the thumping bass and combination of distorted guitars and crystal clear keyboards just make you want to move. The stand out songs include the singles Young Blood and Punching in a Dream, but also the less well known (but fantastic) Girls Like You, which is bound to feature of several upset teenager boys' mix-tapes this summer (though that's not a criticism in this case). The Sun (an all too familiar story of hangover ridden post-coital shame) also has a sinister, haunting quality to it which is just so cool. If I had a complaint about it, it would only be that the promised crechendo isn't impressive enough, but I'm nitpicking really. No Way also has a brilliant breakdown at its end which makes one lament that the rest of it isn't as good. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars The Most Underated Album of The Year 6 Oct 2011
By Mennis
Format:Audio CD
In short this album is amazing, my most played album of the summer. It might not be ground breaking epic music but it is seriously good and a very satidfying album. I bought it on the baseis that Punching in a Dream is tune and there might be one or 2 other good tracks on there. Good news there are no bad tracks it rocks from start to finish. If you dont have it, you're missing out!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Indie Rock 7 Dec 2011
Format:Audio CD
"Passive Me, Aggressive You" by The Naked and Famous contains a clever blend of indie rock and electronic music. The vocals in each of the songs convey intense and organic emotion. My favorite song on this collection is "The Sun." "Passive Me, Aggressive You" is best for anyone that is curious to hear unique songs of the indie rock, alternative rock, and or electronica music genres.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great building album 5 Oct 2011
By Max
Format:Audio CD
An Amazing album. This whole album links together well and builds with each and every track. The singles Young Blood and Punching in a Dream are great tracks, Pop-y and alternative But my personal favorite is the first track All of This. Great album, great band. Buy if you like CSS, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Bombay Bicicle Club (people would commonly lump this band with The Temper Trap but I think they only do that as they are from NZ *shrugs*). Or if you enjoy good music... Treat yourself!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful 16 Sep 2011
Format:Audio CD
This album has to be one of my favourites of 2011. Their music is so uplifting and so representative of the direction music is going recently. I love love LOVE it - "Punching a Dream" is such a good song, but my favourite has to be "No Way". On most albums too, you expect there to be a few "filler" songs that aren't really that good, but all the tracks are really, really great.
If you get the chance, see them live too. I've seen them at two festivals and they were unbelievably good!

This is not what it says. It's described as a deluxe box set, when in fact it's a cheap and small cardboard with the main album plus the two EPs inside. Read more
