4.5 superbbluntedatbirth | January 16th 14

YTG expand their sound to include more synth, retro euro-pop elements and it works pretty splendidly. The singing has also improved a great deal. Teachers is the best song YTG have ever wrote. However, the album doesn't necessarily hold the youthful charm of the self-titled (understandably so -- these guys are growing up)

Call it charm, or the stars aligning. But Young The Giant's debut album was full of so much
youthful charm, it was an incredibly catchy and melodic album. For a band who had such a
by-the-book indie rock sound, It had a surprising staying power that was undeniable. Which,
probably made the hype for Mind Over Matter somewhat unfair. Subsequent listens
signal an obvious progression in their sound. But unfortunately they now sit a little bit
more in the general mold of popular indie pop/rock of the 2010 era's (featuring Justin
Meldal-Johnsen grand production of synth/stadium loving sound). However, Sameer's vocals
here are absolutely undeniable and have shown a clear improvement from the debut. Despite
the similarities to their peers, for YTG, this is a fitting progression that is still
enjoyable.
