British Rock Band, You Me At Six, storm to the top of the UK Album Chart with their fourth album ‘Cavalier Youth’. A week after it’s release, I’m reviewing the album to see if it deserves it’s top spot.
You Me At Six‘s music has progressed to another level and has grown leaps and bounds since their first album, ‘Take Off Your Colours’. Lead singer, Josh Franceschi’s voice has never been stronger and fits the sound of the album perfectly.
The rock band has produced a variety of different songs throughout the album. There are tracks which will have you jumping around your bedroom (Carpe Diem), numbers to relax you (Cold Night) and songs which will make you think (Be Who You Are).
The band released ‘Lived a Lie’ and ‘Fresh Start Fever’ ahead of the release which received great reception. The rest of the album’s track-list does not disappoint and lives up to the high standards.
Lyrically, the band have once again used incredible references within their songs. The track ‘Win Some, Lose Some’ refers to the popular ‘Hunger Games’ trilogy; “I’m in a different district, Hunger games.” ‘Hope For The Best’ sees the band possibly referencing lyrics from a previous song of theirs, ‘If I Were in Your Shoes’.
‘Cavalier Youth’ is a remarkable listen and the new album is bound to gain them even more fans as their music flourishes.
You Me At Six set off on tour at the end of the March and visit five countries around the UK.
‘Cavalier Youth’ is out now in stores and available to download on iTunes.
