4.0 out of 5 stars Demands to be listened to...., 26 Mar 2011
This review is from: Thank You Happy Birthday (Audio CD)
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...

Ive also heard Cage The Elephants new C.D. and I think its brilliant, so do the radio stations judging by the constant play its getting. Your review is pretty accurate, their is a mixture of heavy rock and more melodic tracks like Right before my eyes. Definately a must buy in my opinion.
