When I was a kid, I would play my mom’s vinyl records and dance around in the basement. One of the records she had was Bruce Springsteen’s Born in the U.S.A. I think she liked the cover photo of his butt. My mom was the cool mom.
There’s something about Gang of Youths that reminds me of Bruce Springsteen and Kings of Leon. The Gang of Youths songs sound finished, unlike the Kings of Leon’s songs. (I’m always waiting for Kings of Leon’s songs to move forward after the climax and nothing happens. It’s like a terrible one night stand.)
Anyway, I don’t believe that Gang of Youths will leave anything unfinished. They’re not sloppy. There are 16 songs on this album so they might be more prolific than some bands.
I wish that I still had a basement dance area. I would totally play this album and dance.
