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.

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 ›

On first hearing this album, my first reaction was one of disappointment, and I didn't play it again for a couple of weeks. Then it turned up in the car and I stuck it in the player. It was a lovely sunny day and the music just suited the mood.

My first impression was how unoriginal the album was, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. It's got mixtures of MGMT, Metric (a criminally underlooked band... check them out), Chemical Brothers, Massive Attack, Pink Floyd, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and a few others. The thing is they put their own spin on things and the result is very uplifting and that can't be a bad thing.

Some people are so different they seem like they're trying too hard to be quirky. Much as I love them, all of the aforementioned artists have fallen into this trap from time to time. Yet The Naked and Famous make it all seem effortless and most important... FUN!

It has a couple of 'duff' tracks, which just stops it getting 5 stars, but I highly recommend this album, especially if you're getting depressed at the thought of those autumn nights drawing in and want to retain a bit of Summer.

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!

This band has a very distinctive signature sound. I listen to it when I'm doing the washing up and I like it.

"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.
