SYNDICATE
Posted by: Dave on January 25, 2007 at 9:54 am

YouthGroupCasinoSound: Gorgeous, inspired and sentimental rock that manages to make vast-sounding arrangements feel intimate and warm.
Vocals: The clarity and strength of Toby Martin’s voice is what makes Youth Group truly special. He effortlessly slides around the scale as his carefully crafted words seep into your soul.
Note: Casino Twilight Dogs is the Australian band’s second U.S. full-length release. The album includes a cover of the 1984 international hit “Forever Young,” by German synth pop band Alphaville, which was a #1 hit for Youth Group in their homeland in March 2006 and regularly featured on The O.C. around the same time.
Heavy Rotation tracks: “Start Today Tomorrow”; “Catching & Killing”; “On A String”; “Sorry”
Medium Rotation tracks: The rest, except for “Christmas Windows”
Explicit Lyrics*: none
Recommended: If you’re a fan of the great Manchester, England band James, Youth Group should help fill the void left by their breakup at the beginning of this decade. Tim Booth (James) and Toby Martin (Youth Group) have two of the most powerful and beautiful voices in rock history.
Grade: A- (Top 20 Albums of 2007 Candidate)
