Biography

At the halfway point of Lisbon, the sixth studio album by esteemed rock band The Walkmen, front man Hamilton Leithauser sings, “Victory, right beside me / Victory, should be mine.” Arguably the album’s sonic climax, the chorus also serves as an appropriate mission statement for a band on the receiving end of so much admiration but so many false starts.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Walkmen do it again. Fantastic. 17 Sep 2008
Format:Audio CD
I've had this album only two days but it is very, very good . You can hear many subtle influences from Spagetti western , Niellson, Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Velvet Underground, Mexican, Crooning and David Lynch type scores but this is pure Walkmen sound. The lyrics are intelligent and placed beautifully. The instruments are used sparingly and creatively - these guys can really play and don't need to show off - Hamilton's vocals have never been better....there are some real stand out tracks all ready for me that have given me goose bumps.... but some times the slow burners can surprise you.....Buy it ...get in your car, drive and become part of your own movie with Walkmen score. Amazing, brilliant, multi-layered genius .

I love that feeling you get when music slowly unveils its charms and wins you over completely. This happened to me with The Walkmen and their album 'You & I'. The lead singer's passionate delivery and soaring voice is utterly convincing and the lyrics are punchy and concrete, abstract and literary. 'In the New Year' is a contender for my all-time favourite song, it's festive thrum and belting refrain makes my heart feel like it's leaping from its cavity, and 'I Lost You' is so direct in its searing emotion that it transcends sentimentality and becomes something genuinely moving. The instrumentation is considered and brass flourishes occasionally leap through the beautiful malaise. Such a memorable and gorgeous set of songs that I'm certain I will keep returning to throughout the coming years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best album I have heard for a long time. 21 Feb 2009
Format:Audio CD
I have been a fan of the Walkmen since Bows and Arrows but I was very very happily surprised by this album. A Hundred Miles Off wasn't a bad album but it wasn't good enough. After I heard it I wondered where they would go next. When I heard You & Me I very quickly realised that this was not only the best Walkmen album, but one of my favorite albums of all time.
In the New Year and I Lost You are my personal favorites (the first of which struck a chord with me after my dad took ill at the start of this year) but there isn't really a bad song on it.
Its much more mature sounding than their previous work - and you can really tell they have gotten to grips with what they want their music to sound like. The Walkmen have the best drummer, the best guitarist and the best singer around just now in their band which just gives the songs an amazing feel.
Another point to note is that the songs from this album have to be heard live. The band (especially Hamilton) really give it everything they've got.
In conclusion, this is the best album I've heard for a long time, and the Walkmen backed it up with the best live performance I have ever seen.

5.0 out of 5 stars You and Me Both 14 Oct 2008
Format:Audio CD
I can't really put it better than Betty Clarke's five star review from The Guardian. That a fourth album can be this good is astounding in these times of diminishing returns. Hamilton's vocals have never sounded better drenched as they are by the rest of the band's splashy and reverbed guitars and skittering drums and bass. Slower and more sure footed than previous efforts this moody magnificence continually made the hairs on the back my neck stand to attention. Scarily good.
