Editorial Reviews

2011 debut album from the Auckland five-piece. the band delivers exquisite dream pop, oscillating between a calculatedly energetic beat, glitch-y rhythms, and airy synths underneath the gorgeous dual vocals of Alisa Xayalith and Thom Powers. Features the smash singles "Young Blood" and "Punching In A Dream".

This album feels like a mix-tape of really good bands. One song has me comparing them to Passion Pit or Temper Trap, but then the next song has me thinking M83. Then another suggests Stars, and then another suggests Radiohead. In this case, I really like the range. High energy stuff. Fun album.

I rarely buy albums. I had heard about Naked and Famous through the "Related Videos" section on youtube after listening to songs by The Xx. I listened to "Young Blood" and was pretty impressed straight off the bat. I looked them up here on Amazon and saw what a good rating this CD had received, liked the music samples, and especially the $6 price for a full CD. I took the leap and decided to purchase my 2nd album of the year through Amazon. I am so happy I did. I have had this CD playing on repeat on my iPod since. Their music is very unique. As one reviewer put it earlier, one song seems like Radiohead, then the next like Passion Pit and so on. Its very hypnotizing stuff. Awesome CD, more than worthy of the 6 dollar price tag.

I've been looking for a new band for a while now and this is by far the best album I've bought in a long while. I would describe them as blend between Snow Patrol, Mates of the State, and Passion Pit. Very good album, songs are catchy, lyrics have depth and meaning but are not extraordinary. Energetic, fun, emotional.

Got this album for "Young Blood" which I heard on an episode of Chuck. Originally I was going to just buy the single, but I heard a few other tracks and was convinced to buy the album, which has turned out great.
This is well-written, melodic electronic music with no harshness or overwhelming bass line. The female vocalist has a pleasant voice, the lyrics are better than the throwaway trash in too much popular music, and the track assortment and arrangement for this album are quite nice. Punching In A Dream, The Sun, Eyes, No Way....the first half of the album is good fun, and quite energetic. The second half gets slightly more serious, but never so much so as to feel forced or out of place. I can see why this New Zealand band has won so many awards recently.
As previous posters said, if you like Passion Pit, Snow Patrol, Stars, M83, or anything with origins in synthpop or post-punk, you should get this album, and then keep an eye out for what's next for this band.

No, it isn't the perfect album and no every song isn't perfect. However, there a lot of good tracks on this cd like "young blood" and "girls like you", "all of this", "punching in a dream", and "bells." I liked some best coast stuff and enjoyed some of the tracks off of the "young" ep by summer camp. So if you enjoy those you might enjoy this.

I bought the album after hearing a couple singles, namely "Young Blood" "Passive me, Aggressive you" and "Punching in a Dream".

Those three songs are solid, catchy tunes. Great lyrics and tracks you can really sink your teeth into.

Unfortunately for me, the rest of the album is just too much noise. Too much distortion and electronic effect to have any real meaning or harmony. I never said to myself "Wow, another sick track!" while listening to the rest of the album. Kind of a bummer.

Back in the 90's I listened strictly to rock- alternative, punk, metal, anything as long as it was rock. I fell out of this the past decade or so, as the rock bands just aren't that great anymore. Lately I'd been listening to just about everything except rock.

This band gives me hope.

I say they're a rock band because 1. that's what they call themselves according to their interview; and 2. they actually list Nine Inch Nails as one of their big influences, and I actually can see that in their music--along with some other 80s/90s sounds like Souxie and the Banshees and Smashing Pumpkins. Although not as dark as NIN, they do have more of a traditional "band" sound than MGMT or some of the others they're being compared to. I may not have cared for all the synth as much 10 years ago, but maybe listening to more electronica and house/dance lately has turned me to it. In any case, if this is the direction of new alternative I like it.

I'm seeing them live in 2 weeks and I really hope they're as good in person; that will win them a fan for life. It's nice to come back to my favorite genre of music.

I massively underestimated this album.....probably because I am a kiwi. But in the US I just missed home a little - but seriously this album has elements of so many other great bands its actually very gritty.

Keep it up guys.
