    I've been a YTG fan for a very long time. Mind over Matter and self-titled are absolutely stunning, with meaningful lyrics and a song you can headbang to in the car. Home of the Strange was a bit a different spin on their music, but it still had that Young the Giant shine. This album doesn't really hit the mark. Heat of the Summer, Glory, and Tightrope are probably the only songs that really emit that YTG feel. Almost the entire album is using the higher register of Sameer's voice, and while it's still impressive and powerful, it's nowhere near the bone-shaking power and rawness of his lower range. Also, the backing tracks, percussion, and riffs in the background are so overwhelming, especially while using the higher part of his vocal range. In the other three albums, the backing tracks were quieter, allowing for Sameer's voice to really break through. The songs all sound the exact same; all the melodies and percussion are identical. And the songs are all unoriginal. All in all, this is definitely not their best album. I hope their next songs come back to their roots.

    Kept their rich sound with bluesy soulful vocals and a dreamy new wave swagger that is so original to them. I love it!
  • Such an UNDERrated band :(

    This album has such a sweet mix of vibes to it. From (what I think) those times of blasting the music in a long car ride to just relaxing on a rainy drive. Either way, always great for car rides.

    I’ve been a huge fan since the beginning. I couldn’t get into the album before this. This one on the other hand I can’t stop listening to. Once again YTG has produced an album that is amazing from start to finish. Every song is great and as soon as the album is over, you can just listen to it all over again. This album is great.
  • Love it!

    Can’t stop listening to this album; it gets better every time to listen to it. I think my favorite is You + I.

    Wonderful album! Got some funk and groove and moved back to a more classic sound focusing on the music composition and lyrics. I’ve enjoyed all their music! But, this album really reminds me of a revitalized version of their earlier work. Love it!

    The percussion is terribly unsophisticated and really drives down the sound of pretty much every track. I don't really know why their sound is going in this direction. Drop the cheesy pop. Simplify is the most predictable single that I could have wanted...or not wanted.

    I agree with those saying it isn't quite on a 'Home of the Strange' level, but I still love the sound on this album, it is still vintage YTG, especially with 'Superposition' & 'Glory'. I'm a big fan.

    Just like Interpol, Young the Giant has disappointed me with their new album. There's basically no depth to any of the songs and there's a lot of the same. The only song I enjoy is Simplify. I think this is their worst album as they've removed most of their authenticity present in even their mainstream-leaning Home of the Strange.
  • Pretty good

    I’m reluctant to write a review now as I’m sure this album will grow on me more than it has now, as his is usually the case with anything I’m highly anticipating. For sure it is better than their last album, which I did not care for, but it’s certainly no mind over matter. I still listen to that album beginning to end to this day!
