    Really good album. Great follow-up to Fever To Tell. It amazes me how they've evolved as a band.

    Decent follow up to their debut Fever to Tell. There's not too much of a change but SYB is slightly less rocky and a little bit more melodic but has all the trademarks that would have attracted you to the band in the first place. The early and latter parts of the records do a good job of holding up a slightly lagging middle section.

  1. Short answer: it’s good.
  2. Much of the material on the quirky "Show Your Bones" is more intimate and, at times, tentative. [1 Apr 2006]
  3. Show Your Bones picks up where "Maps" left off, with the trio finding a middle ground between self-conscious primitivism and refined pop. [31 Mar 2006, p.60]
