    I agree, It is not good as "Skeleton Jar" (of course is not) but it has very good songs like "daisychains" and "forever young", it's worth to buy it.

    Skeleton Jar was surprising, Twilight Casino Dogs is... disappointing

    Say what you want, but I've been disappointed lately by the caliber of indie music that has been coming out in the past 12 months. For starters, it all sounds the same and the slow stuff just doesn't have that angst. But then a band like Youth Group comes along. Cross between Bright Eyes (last album), Album Leaf (atmospheric melodies), and 60's hippie pop (Simon & Say what you want, but I've been disappointed lately by the caliber of indie music that has been coming out in the past 12 months. For starters, it all sounds the same and the slow stuff just doesn't have that angst. But then a band like Youth Group comes along. Cross between Bright Eyes (last album), Album Leaf (atmospheric melodies), and 60's hippie pop (Simon & Garfunkel?). The music is transporting. I wasn't crazy about their previous album. I feel like they really spread their wings on this one. Expand

  1. It's all soaring, boring hooks, ringing guitars cribbed from the last two decades of sad bastard Britpop and wussy vocals polished to a sleek finish that makes them ideal fodder for Hollywood soundtrack supervisors.

    Despite plenty of subtle charm and wistfulness, the band's implicit pursuit of warmth occasionally veers off course to flirt with surprising sterility. [Feb 2007, p.115]
  3. This Youth Group record is a diluted version of already watered-down music; not only is it not as good as their first album, I’m not sure it’s as good as Keane’s first album.
