Review #18: Cage The Elephant - Thank You Happy Birthday

Oooh, this is proper angry music. Properly angry now. Gets your blood boiling. I love it. Listening to it just makes you want to punch something. 'Indy Kidz' especially. Really, really.... wow.
I'm literally speechless. Compared to their debut, this is so much better, and 'Cage The Elephant' was a good album. It's not hardcore screaming or anything like that. It's the mixture of the mental vocals, that sound like he's take 40 paracetamol and his liver has just exploded, so he just shouts occasionally, and the awesome riffs lining every song.
However, you do get the occasional calm song like 'Shake Me Down' which is actually musically really quite clever.
So here we have an angry band with some musicality. They should be pleased with themselves. It's no wonder this got to No.2 in the American album charts. America is clearly an angry country.
