Having played Cage The Elephants first album to death I was keen to hear their latest offering. On first listen I was not completely convinced, this is a difficult album that requires a little patience. There are some real contrasts between tracks and a slightly confused mix of styles. "Shake me Down" "Right Before my Eyes" and "Around My head" are great tracks that are easy to listen to and show a distinct style but they are contrasted with some raw frantic tracks that challenge the senses and open up a different side to the band, of the other tracks "Sabretooth Tiger" and "2024" stand out as my personal favourites but each track seems to grow on me the more I listen. Sometime the best albums need a little time and this is certainly one of those. I have plenty of albums that I rated better on first listen and never play... This album has been top of my playlists since I bought it and the rating gets higher on each listen. I saw the band live last week and the energy levels left me buzzing, if they can avoid burnout and give their creativity some space without losing the spark this band could be going places...

Cage The elephant return with "difficult" album number 2 "Thank You Happy Birthday" , it's obvious though they didn't read the script as this second album is every bit as good as their self titled debut album in fact it's probably better! This album was released in the U.s back in January and now finally get's it's European release.

With this second album it would have been easy to copy what they did on their first self titled debut which was a lot more indie and radio friendly, instead they have turned everything up to give their sound a much harder edge and it's a natural progression in their sound. The have also added a lot of melody to their sound as witnessed on the track "Around My Head" as well as the brilliant "Aberdeen". Yes we know the band(in particular front man Matthew Shultz) are big fans of The Pixies and it seems to have rubbed off on them. "Sell Yourself" is full of energy and at just over 2 minutes long leaves you wanting more. "Right Before My Eyes" is like an alternative track that U.S college radio would play to death in the nineties! The last trac on the album "Flow" contains a different version of "Right Before My Eyes". "2024" is a pure punk track, as in 70's punk not the pop punk stuff that we have to suffer these days!

With this second album Cage The Elephant are not resting on their laurels and have delivered a great album one that should see their fan base grow.

It's rare to find a second album that is bolder,edgier and more full of promise than a first, but this is one. While the first album is good it seems like an exercise in American rock. Thank You Happy Birthday is a gloriously assured burst of exuberance. Can't wait for the third!

Picks over the bones of the first album, sucks the marrow out, then proceeds to reinvent the wheel.
Most bands choose to consolidate on their second album, take a deep breath and repeat the formula.
Cage the Elephant are not most bands. They have chosen to push everything to it's natural conclusion and in the process have recorded an album we will be referring back to in a decade as a giant leap forward for guitar rock. This amount of imagination and sheer joy and enthusiasm for what they are doing deserves its reward, and I think Cage The Elephant's reward will be immortality for this brilliantly enriching slab of indie rock. Breathtaking.

This album has a completely different sound to their debut at times it sounds like The Pixies. My favourate tracks are 2024 and sabretooth tiger. After the first few listens I would say there first album was slightly better, the reason why I gave it 4 stars, but this may change the more I listen to it. If you appreciate top notch indie music you will probably like this album.
