Where did this come from?
on September 16, 2011
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.
