Editorial Reviews

Cold War Kids, Loyalty to Loyalty

Customer Reviews

Cold War Kids released an excellent debut album in 2006 "Robbers & Cowards", which was greeted with great critical acclaim.
Paul Allaer
For the fans of the first album, this second album is not as good but it is still worth purchasing because it really contains some gems.
FrogRacing
Other than this song the whole record is kind of boring and I find myself quickly skipping through tracks and on to another CD.

Indie rock derived from the back roads of some of the best Americana music tradition is not a particularly new idea nowadays, as bands struggle to try to outdo each other with a sound that hasn't hit it big yet. The National, Band of Horses, Midlake, dozens of bands are lining up for a swing at that big `ole `70s bluesy sound. Luckily for Fullerton, CA band Cold War Kids, they've already made a name for themselves with 2006's critically acclaimed Robbers & Cowards, a vibrant piece of indie rock that incorporated the best of old-school blues and backwoods country rock. The Kids wade in even deeper on Loyalty to Loyalty, and while much of this sophomore effort captures the urgency of their debut, at times the Kids drag rather than kick things up.

Singer Nathan Willett is a big reason for the band's appeal, a divisive vocalist with a raw, less trained Jeff Buckley-ish set of pipes and a penchant for preaching. But just as he uplifts some of Loyalty's best songs with a raspy passion on the down `n dirty "Mexican Dogs" or with smart lyrics on the thumping drums and sexy rhythm of "I've Seen Enough," his voice can turn from interesting and fresh to grating and intolerable with just a few misplaced falsettos. Single "Something Is Not Right With Me," although musically spot-on, is derailed by Willett's ranting shouts, while the band's decision to lift Willett's vocals way above everything else on the much-too-slow "Avalanche B" and the otherwise catchy "I've Seen Enough" make one wish Willett took more lessons.

The rest of the band is as on top of their style as ever before, cranking out track after track of irrepressibly bluesy, bar band-esque rockers that roar along on menacing guitar ("Mexican Dogs") or lilting, jazzy piano melodies ("Every Valley Is Not A Lake").

Robbers and Cowards is an excellent album, full of energy and emotion. Loyalty has a different approach, yet maintains what made Robbers so strong. The lack of a single rhythm guitar through every song and their use of different instruments to drive songs forward is a nice change from the present mainstream song formula. The album starts strong with six unique songs, all different but with an energy running throughout, Something is Not Right With Me is poppy, but is not your typical teeny-pop sound or lyrics. I can't get into Avalanche in B or Every Man, but there are amazing counters like Dreams Old Men Dream and Golden Gate Jumpers that are easy to relate to with reflective lyrics.
It is not Robbers and it shouldn't be, but after a few listens through it is just as strong overall.

These guys are an incredible live show, most energetic live show I've seen in years-it is easy to see they love what they are doing.

Cold War Kids released an excellent debut album in 2006 "Robbers & Cowards", which was greeted with great critical acclaim. After relentless touring, the band finally came around with this, their second album.

"Loyalty to Loyalty" (13 tracks; 46 min.) is somewhat of a departure of the sound of the first album, with a much more bluesier sound. The album crashes in with a heavy "Against Privacy", setting the tome for the album. The songs are generally less-rocking than on the first album, but for some reason it doesn't bother me at all, as the album has a great overall groove to it. "Everyone Is Not Right With Me" reminds me of early White Stripes. "Golden Gate Jumpers" is as eerie as the title of the track suggests. "Every Man I Fall For" is as bluesy as the album gets, and it sounds great. "Relief" is about as mainstream rocking as anything on the album.

In all, I really like the album, although I can easily see why fans from the first album might be disappointed with this. I'm not. The band is evolving, you know? I saw the band when they toured in 2007 with the first album, and the show was nice. But I saw the band again just recently (opening for Death Cab), and they put on a truly mesmerizing 45 min. set, bringing a lot of the songs from this album, while throwing in a few nuggets from the first album. Truth be told, the songs from this album in concert rocked harder than anything you'll hear on the album Great, great show.

Many will hear this album and be confused with the product after listening to the single "Something is not right with me". The strange thing is that the single really doesn't belong on this album, as its the only track with a fast beat, high energy, rockesque feeling. The other twelve tracks are for me more conservative, mature, and with greater production value than their past works.

The music is spot on, and that's one thing I've always loved from this band. Less repetition and beats on loop and more of the same diversified throughout the track is how I would explain it. I would also call it a discontent allegory because as the lyrics can stand on its own, The lead singer can sometimes go on his own tangent which can destroy a track because both the music and the singer seem to be on opposite sides (track 7).

The problem I had with this album at the beginning was that I didn't know where it was taking me. As I had heard the Single before and the first two tracks the album seemed to work themselves towards songs the likes of the single. But they never came. My belief is that if you want to experience and understand the album as a whole start listening from track 10 - 13 and back to track 1 - 9. The tracks 10 - 13 being my favorite of mine :). In conclusion the album has really grown on me in the past 3 days I've been listening to it. It has again a more mature feeling to it than most juvenile, testoterone driven albums out there.
