Editorial Reviews

Cage The Elephant's eagerly anticipated third full-length album, Melophobia, will be released Oct. 8th on RCA Records. The new album was recorded in Nashville, TN and reunites the band with producer Jay Joyce who produced the group s prior two releases.

The new album is the follow up to 2011's acclaimed sophomore album Thank You Happy Birthday, which debuted at #2 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart and has over 250,000 copies to date. Rolling Stone, New York Times, LA Times, USA Today,and Entertainment Weekly praised the release as "one of the best rock albums of the year." The album also spawned the hit single "Shake Me Down" which spent six weeks at #1 at Alternative radio. Their acclaimed self-titled debut album was released in 2009 and has sold over 550,000 copies to date. The album remained on the Billboard 200 Chart for an astounding 73 consecutive weeks and produced three Top 5 singles at Alternative Radio, including the massive hit "Ain't No Rest For The Wicked."

This coming September Cage The Elephant will bring their raucous live show to arena audiences across the US for a run of dates with Muse. See below for a complete list of upcoming dates.

Cage The Elephant consists of singer Matt Shultz, guitarist Brad Shultz, bassist Daniel Tichenor, guitarist Lincoln Parish, and drummer Jared Champion.

First let me say Cage The Elephant is a great band and I really like the music on this album and their performance.

My problem with this album is the recording/mastering. It sounds terrible. Its so compressed or the levels are pushed so high that the entire album sounds distorted. I understand that most rock bands use distortion pedals on their guitars, that is not what I am referring to here. The entire recording, even the piano and vocals, has no depth and sounds awful. It is almost unlistenable.

I bought the CD and this compression is on both the CD and the amazon mp3s.

Again a wonderful band and a good album, except for the quality of the recording.
4 stars for the album, 1 star for the recording
These guys are one of the best live bands I have seen in the last couple years, highly recommended.

This album is incredibly ambitious and amazing in the way it fulfills those ambitions. I have been recommending it to everyone from the moment I heard opening track Spiderhead and the catchy first single Come A Little Closer. Some of the songs have horn sections (e.g. Black Widow) that will incite the most pensive wallflower to get up and dance, while other tracks are more introspective, including the standout track Telescope. My favorite song on the album is Halo which manages to sound radio-ready while remaining uncompromising as the singer reflects that "Every time I get away you find a way back under my skin" before reciting in the chorus "So I couldn't help myself, I lost my halo." There's a lot more goodness to it than that.. really, just BUY THIS ALBUM!

Different than their old stuff in a great way, garage rock with surf tones. Reminds me of the strokes, but it honestly has a sound of it's own. One of the beats albums of 2013 and my personal favorite, these guys are doing it right! Keep at em guys

I was a casual fan of Cage The Elephant with "Ain't No Rest For the Wicked" a few years back but picked up this album and it hasn't left my CD player in the car (yes, I still have one of those). EVERY song has something to offer. The ballad "Telescope" to the rockin' "Teeth" (yeah, I feel the beat in my teeth), and everything in between makes this one of the best albums of the year in my book. I usually don't write reviews of music but this was was so good I thought I'd pass on my thoughts and hopefully get someone else to pick this up and support these guys! I had been listening to a lot of hip-hop lately but this truly great rock album has brought me back a bit.

Pick this up if you haven't already!

I've heard it said before that a third album is the one by which to judge a band... Out of personal choice, I also choose not to judge an album until I've given three good listens. well, I've done my three listens of this, cte's third album, and here's the verdict...

cte has not once failed to produce a high quality album. they are some incredibly talented individuals, and this album has convinced me that they can use a guitar to produce any sound they want. my only problem is, none of the sounds they want to produce sound like their own, which is kind of a shame for a band oozing with so much talent.

I'll break it down like this: their first album, which is my last favorite sounds like a tribute to late 90's popular alternative. think ' birds in the shed' era red hot chili peppers having a baby with smashmouth. it's high quality work, but not terribly inspired. their second album, which would easily get a five star from me, was much more energetic. it had the illusion of being wholly original, though in hindsight it sounded like a Pixies tribute album (or an alternate take on in utero, had nirvana chosen a radio friendly approach to it)

now cte's gone from 90's alternative to 2000's post punk revival, which is still a form off now classic alternative. the lo-fi production values, and catch guitars, fun hooks, etc, all bring a sense of the stokes, yeah yeah yeah's, arctic monkeys, et al. ' teeth' even breaks up into sheer noise, set to spoken prose, which is a clear nod to sonic youth ( it really could've been written by Lee Renaldo), who inspired that movement to start off with... and it's incredible!

It's common you know, come from a town that ordinarily isn't known for mainstream radio rock, carve out a successful couple of albums, then fall flat on your faces writing 12 radio singles on your junior effort. Clearly this was NOT the fate of Cage the Elephant.

While the most enjoyable notion of listening to a new CTE album is not knowing when you'll hear brass inclusion or a punk blues break out, it's the success of their radio hits that have really allowed this band to maintain their integrity and creative juices.

From their closing acoustic "Cigarette Daydreams" to the deliciously tempo'ed but retro feel of "Come a Little Closer" through this album it seems there is no sound Cage the Elephant won't tackle.

As the case in their previous records, throughout Melophobia, there is no forced genre, only funky rock melodies often with unpredictable breaks. "Take it or Leave it" is perfect example of CTE's ability to go off their own radar, coming off sounding like a disco mix between Beck and perhaps The Pixies. Or perhaps track nine "Teeth," where the band wanders into early Kings of Leon blends.

From one track to the next, you simply don't know what to expect from the Bowling Green formation. "Halo," shows off their creative drum and even a synth contribution while the following track "Black Widow" is geared more towards the fans of Black Keys. "It's Just Forever" is more against the grain punk, featuring Alison Mosshart of The Kills and The Dead Weather.

Despite our inability to refrain from comparing this band to multiple other talents, without a doubt, Cage the Elephant has proven they drum to a beat of their own. Even with the departure of lead guitarist Lincoln Parrish, most importantly, Cage The Elephant has proved themselves responsible with the spirit of indie rock.
