Sound — 10
Well just to start do you imaginae that in these days you will hear a band that truely has his own sound? And realize that is not just another wannabe product? Well here is Cage The Elephant for us the ones who have lost faith in music! Like the buddy above me this is an amazing mixture beetween Beck, RHCP and a bit of Nirvana. The music its simple in almost every way but its really good its catchy and well it keeps in your mind for a lot you will love this record belive me and if you dond like it well... You're to headstrong.

Really good ones I mean normally we only hear about love/heartbreak pain/sex or no? Again Cage... Sings about everything that's going on in their life like beat your ass for money in "Ain't No Rest For The Wicked" and how hard could it be to face yourself "Back Againts The Wall" Matt Schultz put his heart and thoughts on every lyric he's going to be one of a kind.
Overall Impression — 10
We can't compare this to anything this is just Cage The Elephant saying "Listen!" and hell yeah I know that many people is listen them. Well the best songs in this album for me are: "In One Ear" was the first one I ever heard its catchy with lyrics that make you think that he is talking to you. And above every other song "Back Againts The Wall" just listen that song and belive you'll be in love with Cage The Elephant forever. If I lost this record I kill myself! Well, no, I buy it again.
