Chances are if you're reading this review is because you may have heard their most popular song "Animal" and that piqued your interest. Well just in case you are wondering, yes. It only get's better from there.
The first track on the list really get's the ball rolling with "Sins of My Youth" An awesome song about regretful optimism. This track is succeeded by "Love and Affection" which is a fun track, but really does a great job of shaping the overall build of the album for "Animal" After you've listened to animal, you're presented with a really fun tune known as "Your Surrender" which is almost as a verbal follow up to Animal, continuing trying to woo his lover at being "more than friends" the best part about "Your Surrender" is the Chorus that just makes you want to get up and dance.
Up next on the list of tracks is 1983. Which is a fun upbeat song that almost has a bit of a surf vibe. Makes a wonderful Driving song.
As we reach the last few songs here in the album it kicks it up a notch with a bit of a upbeat techno-ish piece called "Girls and Boys in School." After that is one of my favourite songs "In the Next room, a riff based Piano track that has almost a showy vaudeville feel to it. The Eighth and final track on the album is called "Our War" it has an etherial feel to it, then builds into a soft rock piece. Combine that with touching and motivating lyrics as well, and you've got yourself a pretty decent song. It lets you down easy and makes you think; like any good work of art should.
Great Job Neon Trees! 5/5
