Amoeba Review

01/20/2014

It’s been four years since the first Young the Giant album, and the Irvine-bred band has grown up somewhat in that time, as evidenced by their second album, Mind Over Matter. The band throws curveballs into what are on the surface catchy pop-rock songs, giving “Anagram” a 7/8 beat that pairs nicely with its soft-rock melody. Frontman Sameer Gadhia knows how to work a song into a shoutalong frenzy, making every moment of a song like “It’s About Time” count. Producer Justin Medal-Johnsen (M83, Neon Trees) adds just the right amount of sheen to the proceedings—really, these are songs that call for it, with the kind of arena bombast that was once reserved for bands like Heart—adding loving texture to songs like power-ballad “Crystallized.” With their sophomore album, Young the Giant prove they weren’t a one-album wonder. Frankly, they could be the new kings of the arena.
