    Typical Sophmore album

    Posted

    This album was definitely change up from their self titled debut and if you are looking for the hard hitting sound you got from songs like In One Ear or Back Stabbin' Betty or even Ain't No Rest For The Wicked, then you won't find it in Thank You Happy Birthday. Like I said, it is a typical 2nd album, the band went in a different direction to try and find a new, unique sound. If you like Cage the Elephant then you don't need convincing, but if you're not sure then here's what I can tell you. The first single off of this album, Shake Me Down, pretty much sums up the mood for the entire record. It is mellow and sometimes melancholy, but never boring. Songs like Japanese Buffalo and Sell Yourself will get you shaking your head and possibly jumping out of your seat, while songs like Aberdeen and Right Before My Eyes will mostly just have you tapping your fingers. That being said, it is the songs like Aberdeen and Flow that got me on this album. The change of pace for Cage the Elephant was definitely a surprise, but it was one that grew on me and I came to enjoy it so much so that I couldn't put it away.

    An Amazing Album

    I absolutely love this CD. I'm not sure what the other reviewer was listening to because this is a great album. Go listen to a few tracks before you buy it if you don't believe me, but you won't be disappointed. Top tracks (in no particular order): Aberdeen Shake Me Down Sell Yourself *Around My Head* Sabertooth Tiger

    Cage the Elephant's cd, Thank You Happy Birthday is their best yet. It is high energy rock that everyone can relate to. The songs are deep without making you feel like you are thinking. To me it was like 70's folk meets 90's rock and roll. They have a sound that is unmatched. I have bought more than one of these cds; they make a great gift.

    Cage the Elephant - Why?

    Cage the Elephants first CD is one of my favorites. This new CD is nothing like the first. Not sure why the band went in this direction but I think it was a very bad decision. Listen to some sample tracks before you purchase. This CD is not bad. It just is not half as good as the first.

    It hurts me to say this, but this CD by Cage The Elephant was not their best work. It seems like they tried to hard, and it sounds horrible. There are only a couple of songs that I like, but the first CD was way better than this one.

    I love Cage the Elephant and this cd does not disappoint. It has fast dance songs and mellow ones too. Just wish it came with free concert tickets: they put on a great show every time.

    This is a great live band that's polished up nicely in the studio. Take a listen to the Cage and loose yourself in the melody and power of an amazing group.

    Cage the Elephant's first album does not disappoint. It's full of great tracks that really separate the band from others in the genre.
