4. Mirror Master (2018)

“This album is phenomenal. I have been a long time fan and the lyrics and instruments hit all the right ‘notes.’ I honestly just laid in bed to enjoy it in its entirety. I highly recommend this band and commend them on a great album. High marks for them.”

3. Home Of The Strange (2016)

“‘Home of the Strange’, have been filled start to finish with great hits. There are probably only a handful of songs from the 3 albums combined that are not on my must-play list because they are slower ballads (which isn’t really my bag of tea), but they still are great songs in their own right. If you are a Young the Giant fan and haven’t heard this album, it is a must get. If you are foreign to the band in general, still a must get!”

2. Mind Over Matter (2014)

“Young the Giant isn’t exactly a band I’d credit heavily for their originality, and in fact the entire genre of indie rock seems lately to have been co-opted by radio-friendly, arena-rock bands that all sound alike. That said, I think the critical backlash against Young the Giant has been pretty over the top, given that this album is filled with solidly written, well-performed songs that don’t suffer as much from overproduction as many of the reviews would have you believe. Then again, maybe I just like the song “Teachers” because it’s a rare ode to my chosen profession, a refreshing antidote to the anti-education cynicism of Pink Floyd and other rock bands of my youth.”

1. Young The Giant (2010)

“Listening to them is like listening to an early version of Interpol. I feel they haven’t found their sound yet but their experimentation seeking it is beautiful. The music is at times sporadic and despondent. I love how they play their guitars off beat at times and how they can shift their songs to be quiet, loud and thematic, but also pensive when it needs to be. Sameer’s vocals are full of soul and really drive the music.”
