This is wonderful, inventive music that is intelligent rock with some tasteful electronica touches. Shelter and Wind Up Dead are favorites, but I really like the whole album. Looking forward to a sophomore effort and hopefully seeing them at Lolla this year.
Give this a try... it'll stick with you, it's good music.
The songs themselves are hard to describe. They are all very different, but mesh nicely into one cohesive album. The album encompasses dream-like ambient songs, rockers and electro-blues songs, and mellow acoustic-y songs, and more.
I'm also very happy that the CD also contains the 4 bonus tracks, which have appeared on various other formats of the album at different times. We get People, Life Off, You Gotta Wait, and Jokes on You!
I highly recommend this album, as it is one that I have been listening to non-stop since last August. It's an album that is never boring, as each listen brings out something new. Buy it and enjoy!!!
It's surprising the degree to which Dhani has embraced and deploys the new digital musical technologies in a way that his father, who liked to record "real instruments" as he called them, did not. But then again, maybe not, as George liked his effects pedals too.
For me personally, it's also an interesting experience to listen to Dhani's voice purely as an instrument. I'm sure that Dhani, like other children of former Beatles like Julian and Sean Lennon, dislike vocal comparisons to their fathers for obvious and understandable reasons. Nevertheless, I must say that as a lifetime Beatles fan, who saw Dhani's father live 4 times and who enjoys singing himself, I found myself really impressed. George's voice was often described as being "thin" or "reedy". There is a similarity, yes - but Dhani's voice has a timbre and a soulfulness that is his alone. As an instrument it grabs your attention and draws you in.
There are some great individual songs on this recording - So Vain, Give You Love, Another John Doe, Yomp - but the whole album is impressive and bears repeated listenings. A lot of musical creativity, playfulness and ability is displayed.
Dhani's' his own man, following his own path, finding and exploring his own sounds with his friends. The result is in a word - beautiful.
It's always great to hear a new artist making beautiful music. After listening to You Are Here, I look forward to the future of thenewno2.

I was floored by the TNN2 song which ran on the credits of the Beautiful Creatures film. The chord changes and overall sound were top shelf. Read morePublished on March 13, 2014 by Adolph Buddha
Wow George would be very proud of what his son is doing these days with his music,it is nice to hear that he is'nt doing his fathers sound but doing his own thing.Published on March 13, 2014 by Michael Krampitz
Really GREAT!!!!No comparison to his father but just as good. Sorry for that but he has separated himself and is very creative and unique. Keep up the good work.Published on February 15, 2014 by TERRY E BROWER
Love the way George's son does his own thing. This is not a Beatles wannabe, Dhani has his own unique style though the 'Beatles' influence in experimentation and variety is... Read morePublished on August 31, 2013 by Fred
This band included George Harrison's son, Dhani, but is not a "sounds-like" situation at all. These guys have a very modern, edgy sound, rock but with some jazz influences. Read morePublished on June 2, 2013 by Avery Gordon
