5.0 out of 5 stars Where did this come from? September 16, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I'm an avid amazon browser. In fact I spend probably a little too much time previewing music and books when I should be working, but that's another story. I owe amazon for my discoveries of such amazing artists as Ray LaMontagne and The Black Keys, and now I must add Young the Giant to that list. I usually don't take the time to write a review for anything, as it takes some kind of miraculous occurrence to compel me to shell out the 200 words or so. This band is truly amazing. I don't use that word lightly. I love everything about this album. It's so original, intricate, polished. To say it is better than 99% of today's music is an understatement. These guys really have something different. I'm really hoping that this is only the beginning for them, because talent like this deserves recognition. Don't fall into the "My Body" trap and just buy the mp3. That isn't even the best song on the album, albeit a good one. My favorite song from this album is "I Got." It is just so much fun! Great tunes, great instrumentation, great vocals. Do yourself a favor and get this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Love It! November 16, 2010
Format:MP3 Music
I heard Young the Giant's My Body once and immediately purchased the album. I'm so happy to say that it isn't the only great track on here. It's the kind of great soaring melodic rock that seems rare now a days. Sameer Gadhia's vocals are excellent, moving and evocative, and the music to go along with it matches him on every note. Definitely one of my favorite albums of the year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing and addictive! December 28, 2010
By eyeks
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
My daughter discovered them through a family friend a while back when they were called Jakes... We then trouped over to their SF concert at Bottom Of The Hill and I was hooked. It is very precious that I am able to enjoy music with my teenage daughter! Just Priceless! If you have not auditioned their sound - you owe it to yourself and to your kids to give them a serious listen! You'll find something to cherish! Bravo! Well done! Get it: Young The Giant

5.0 out of 5 stars My 2011 Summer Album June 18, 2011
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Sure, it's been out for several months already, but this is an album full of songs that get stuck in your head. It has become my 2011 Summer Pick. The comparisons to Coldplay in other reviews are a little overdone. Certainly, there are points in some songs that really sound like Coldplay, but YTG have their own sound. I love this album.

"My Body" is "the hit". I'm a big fan of "I Got" and several others. Overall, vocals are incredible and these guys consistently find a good groove with the music throughout the album. Thanks Amazon for the suggestion and the nice price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific album November 16, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I had to get this album after hearing them on Sirius a few times. Cough syrup and My body are both outstanding and highly addictive songs. I also love "I Got", I almost feel like I get lost in their music sometimes and that hasn't happened to me for years. Very refreshing sound, some of my friends complained they were a little "slow" for their taste but otherwise great sound. So far its my favorite album of the year! As an added bonus, my kids enjoy it as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars No filler here... January 7, 2012
By Lindsay
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I caught "My Body" on a television show and picked up the single, but when I saw the reduced price, I decided to pick up the entire album based on the strength of the one song. It's got some great hooks and so incredibly catchy, I had to call my husband at work to tell him to turn on his Cloud and check them out. He just came home and said he let it play on repeat all morning long - very upbeat, energetic, got him through a Saturday at work!

4.0 out of 5 stars Young The Giant March 2, 2012
By Stephen
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Apartment: (5/5) My favorite song on the album. The riffs are beautiful and the chorus is fantastic.
My Body: (5/5) This song is electrifying. The introspective verses gives way to a loud and in your face chorus.
I Got: (3/5) A smooth sailing song. The chorus sounds unoriginal to me, but it's nice to listen to.
Cough Syrup: (5/5) Their most popular song, understandably so. Amazing lyrics and melody, "Life's too short to even care at all".
God Made Man: (4/5) One of those songs that will go under the radar, but, nonetheless this song is good. It builds up to a heart-felt ending.
12 Fingers: (5/5) Their classic love song. Very nice to listen to. My second favorite chorus on the album.
Strings: (2/5) Another unoriginal sounding song. My least favorite on the album. C-side quality.
Your Side: (3/5) The melody is weak but the energetic chorus makes up for it.
Garands: (5/5) Their war tune. Not a good song to sing along to but it's a great listen. It tells an awesome story.
St. Walker: (3/5) This song is a song that usually will build on people. At first it sounds bland, but it's "okay".
Islands: (4/5) Their slowest and softest song. It's delicate and beautiful.
Guns Out: (4/5) A great way to end an album. The chorus is amazing.

(48/60) The score may "seem" low, but I have high standards. This album is a GREAT album. There is room for development and growth. This is their first album and they're gaining attention rather quickly. I will enjoy this one for awhile and look forward to their next.

5.0 out of 5 stars Big time January 13, 2012
By Ricardo
Format:MP3 Music
This is great music and I hope the guys will continue to do so for many years. I love particularly "Cough Syrup", but all the songs are very good. One of the best in 2011, and certainly, the best new band of the year. No excuses not to buy.
