Cage The Elephant – Melophobia ALBUM REVIEW

Listen: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8xtg-ntDZGk

Alternative rock outfit Cage the Elephant completely surprises me with a record of songs that have uniformly interesting production, energetic performances, memorable hooks, sharp melodies, and a pretty diverse array of instrumentation. Bravo!

What did you think of this album? Love it? Hate it? Why? What should I review next, eh?

MAN says:

He had a jacket over the red flannel to signify his expectations going in vs how much he liked it.

Ashton Lambert says:

Michael AK says:

Anthony can feel it in his Teeth, best in the game

BothBoat says:

Robert Daniels says:

I hate this dude

Mr Cruel World says:

Review Cage The Elephant Unpeeled!

Frechinator too says:

I felt that cage the elephant was in the brass band.

zer0 95 says:

my fav album from them, i kinda associate it with social isolation for some reason idk

Ella Exterkamp says:

i enjoy this album thoroughly

Stardust Samurai says:

Their first album is one of my favorite albums period, but I don’t really like anything after that. It’s not that they’re bad, but it’s just not my thing. I feel like it lacks their energy from their self-titled, which is what I loved about them.

Arlo KILpatrick says:

Ain’t no rest for the wicked is a total rip off of loser

stealthheartocarina z says:

…I agree that I love melophobia, but I’m shocked that I found someone who didn’t like Aberdeen, Right Before My Eyes, In One Ear, Back Against the Wall, and Ain’t No Rest since that’s pretty much the most popular songs from the past to albums
I’m also surprised that he wasn’t a fan of Matt’s vocals in the previous album, and yet he’s okay with Teeth XD

Lucid Memer says:

Free free

juan carlos pro says:

I just saw your Thank You Happy Birthday Review and didn’t agree at all with you. But this is a very mature review and complete. subscribed

Cole Van remortel says:

Thank you happy birthday was their best album tbh

portuguese knife fight says:

let cal out of his cage

Alex Scaffo says:

If you don’t like Melophobia or their new album you just won’t. Matt and friends just don’t give a fuck. They’re performers and completely in their own lane. They do drugs and play music.

Card Shark says:

fight me

Steve Douglas says:

I’d have to agree with your opinion.

Homegrowngoodie says:

cigarette daydreams is my shit

SebsVids says:

I can’t see how you liked “teeth”, I hated teeth, to me it was a copy of “tame” almost, and a shit one imo. Then again I liked “It’s just forever”. I love this album otherwise. I also didn’t like black widow. Everything else was great.

STRiZZY says:

Hypocrite is a classic.

winkiesandtwinkies says:

hes the drummer for cage the elephant

Tam Crose says:

I love all their albums. everything about them really.

christian gisborne says:

“So all the critics who despise us, go ahead and criticize us, it’s your tyranny that drives us, adds the fire to our flame”

Herculaso says:

Melonphobia.

Lewis Patterson Beard says:

I like the music but the cover actually scares me the physical cover art

Lil Penis says:

Saw them live a few days ago.

Jestifer Chalice says:

Listen to the band Women instead. Imagine if you flayed the indie character of this album, let him heal and squeal in a dungeon for a couple decades, then let him record an album- you’d get Public Strain
