Editorial Reviews

2011 release from the Southern California Alt-Rockers. Since their modest beginnings as four guys who drove around southern California with their gear in their cars, packing whatever they could steal a space, Cold War Kids have always exhibited two qualities in their music, intense passion and emotional truth. Lithe and percussive, roaring and tuneful, the soul-punk on the Long Beach quartet's first two albums Robbers & Cowards and Loyalty To Loyalty emerged like miniature Goth novels. Singer Nathan Willett channeled taut dramas of men on the edge, families in peril, and crises of faith. The musical literature of these four tight-knit friends-Willett, Jonnie Russell, Matt Maust and Matt Aveiro was a sound that augured something bigger, something more universal.

For what was once an indie rock group, Cold War Kids now has a very commercial sound. And that's understandable because the band currently records for one of the biggest companies around, Universal Music Group, as a part of their Interscope label. They've toured with Death Cab for Cutie and, on this CD, their third, worked with producer Jacquire King. King has helped to make successes of Modest Mouse and Kings of Leon, to whom the Kids bear more than a passing sonic resemblance.

Sounding slicker in the years since they released their first EPs is probably inevitable, but that's not necessarily a failing. There's always a market for well played, passionately sung, cleverly written songs with catchy melodic hooks. And these things "Mine Is Yours" has in spades. This music is less idiosyncratic and more mainstream than on previous releases, but it's an evolution rather than a complete change of pace. These are clearly the same fellows -- they've just matured and gotten more professional.

The title track sets the pace for the entire album. Like many of the songs on the CD, it's an anthemic blending of rock and Americana, starting quietly and building to a climax on the strength of insistent percussion, layers of guitars, and the ringing vocals of front man Nathan Willett.

The second track is the lead single, "Louder Than Ever," but it's the quirky third cut, "Royal Blue," that grabs me. It has an irresistible bass-driven beat and just as much radio-friendly potential as "Louder." The fourth song, "Finally Begin," is also enjoyable but more conventional, while the next two, "Out of the Wilderness" and "Skip the Charades," are among the strongest material on the album, adding emotional lyrics and haunting harmonies to the Kids' signature sound.

1.0 out of 5 stars What happened to Cold War Kids? October 13, 2011
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Wow, this album is shockingly bad. I don't know what they changed, but Cold War kids have lost everything that made them interesting and gone with a much more polished, dare I say easy-listening sound with this album. Has there been a major line-up change? New producer? Whatever it is, it's terrible and has destroyed the band's sound. Even if you're a fan of the band, I'd pass on this album.

3.0 out of 5 stars off the beaten path March 26, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
some real winners on this album, but a little bit too much of a change from their original stuff for me to be comfortable. I needed to listen to it 4 times over before I felt like I could say I liked it. A little too much electronic and felt sorta 80's to me ... still a fan though.

2.0 out of 5 stars Could have been decent. April 27, 2011
Format:Audio CD
The reason why this isn't a 4 or 5 star review is because it doesn't sound like cold war kids anymore. I have it on vinyl and cd and the problem I came to discover is that the guitars aren't present enough. All I hear are drums and vocals. Not that the vocals are bad but seriously. The guy who mixed this ought to be shot. It needs more guitar. I have never felt this way about an album being a vocal performance major its usually been vocals that either make or break an album for me. So if i am noticing it, it must be lacking. I love the lyrics tho. And I wish that the lead singer would bring back more of his style.

4.0 out of 5 stars More accessible but still sounds like CWK January 29, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Having read several music press reviews prior to purchasing this album, I expected to drop the metaphorical needle on this third full length release from the Cold War Kids and find myself subjected to yet another Kings of Leon release. Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, and several other reviewers compared these Southern California boys latest effort to those Tennessee boys last record, and while both bands can be accused of occasionally dipping into tired rock cliches (the latter more than the former), I am happy to say that while "Yours is Mine" may be the band's most accessible effort, it undoubtedly sounds like a Cold War Kids album.
Chiming guitars, propulsive piano, a rhythm section churning the band forward without unnecessary clutter, and Nathan Willet's instantly recognizeable vocals are all here. Yes, some songs, including the mellow opener, start off with riffs and/or slowly building intros that are reminsicent of the stadium rocking anthems that Kings of Leon have made millions off of, but in true Cold War Kids fashion, all such musical preludes are soon abandoned for minor key musings and herky-jerky melodies that have come to define the band. "Louder than Ever" follows the forgettable opener (which is really the only lackluster track) with a melodic hook reminscent of the last EP's "Audience of One". "Royal Blue" and "Finally Begin" follow in similar fashion, mixing a pop sensibilty with the odd musical quirks that give the band its definitive sound while undermining that same pop sensibility.
While the album has its share of hooks, and contains often smart lyrics that you may find yourself quoting or singing to yourself once the album is finished, the parts fail to create a sum greater than its parts.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bland October 12, 2011
By Derek
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
First off, I normally wouldn't bother to ever review an album, because I think reviews for music are largely worthless. I don't even read them normally for the same reason. I read the reviews for this album after I had bought it and listened to it for awhile because I was wondering if others felt like I did. Second, I'm not going to pretend that I'm some big Cold War Kids fan from way back when, because I'm not. I found them from an Amazon suggestion as a result of my browsing history. Normally these suggestions are hilariously terrible or something I already own, so I figured they would be horrible. The suggested album was for Robbers and Cowards, and I instantly liked what I heard. There was an interesting stop and go syncopation and it just was something NEW sounding. It was fun, lively music. So, when I saw mention of this album, I thought hey, I'll just buy it without listening, assuming there would be the same type of music, at least to some extent, that drew me in.
I'm all for evolution of sound, but this is bland. All of the things that made the other album new and fun to me have died on this one. The vocals have lost their distinctive perk and the rest of the music sounds like some bull$%*& adult contemporary garbage I'd hear at the grocery store. I normally pay a good deal of attention to lyrics, but this was so uninspiring I didn't bother; they may be good.

Buy this if you dig soft adult contemporary. It may be your cup of tea, but it certainly isn't mine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Album - can't stop listening
I loved Robbers and Cowards, then I kinda forgot about these guys for a while. Mine is Yours has a more mellow sound, but it's not boring. This album is full of great tracks.
