Young the Giant write the sort of soaring, melodic rock 'n' roll that's bound for greatness. From the jolting percussion and anthemic chorus of 'My Body' to the lovesick fervor of 'Cough Syrup,' to the uptempo, sun-stained pop of 'I Got,' the California five-piece's stunning debut features an arresting collection of songs that announce the presence of a vital new band.

With any great find that I have ever stumbled upon in popular music, it has always been the case that I could hear many different artists styles reflected in these new works. And I did listen to this band with an open ear. Alongside the Burton Cummings style, I could also relate sounds and styles to The Cutting Crew, Sting, White Lies, and the Killers - all of whom are great representations of solid songwriting with strong melodic structure that is pleasing to the ear.
Certainly, with any new band's debut album there is a general lack of continuity and thematic adherence. It seems that every debut album is a somewhat eclectic collection of years of prior writings meant to showcase an artist's versatility - and Young the Giant certainly shows a solid amount of versatility compared to its current peers.
Being a child of the seventies and eighties, I am naturally resistant and extremely critical of most music released after 1989 - okay I AM a dinosaur of sorts. But honestly, I have not heard a lot of music since that meets up to the artistry and craft of those released way back when. Young the Giant is one of those rare bands that have burst through the radar to land into my very selective music collection. Young the Giant is a easy listen. There is a warm feeling behind the songs and a sense of melody and charm that is rarely seen in other bands of this new era of "ring-tone-ready" music production.
I most certainly believe this band will be around for quite some time. As far as Young the Giant's debut release goes... I wholeheartedly recommend purchasing this album - this is an introduction to a band that may very well represent a positive change in the industry!
On the flip side, the 2nd half of the album does lose a considerable amount of steam. After "Strings", the songs start melding together for me. Either way, I like the energy, I like Sameer Gadhia's voice, and I like how polished each track is. Definitely worth your time.
