I’ve loved YtG forever and they never disappoint me! Tightrope and Mirror Master are my jams!
Their last album had some absolute bangers, but Mirror Master is a complete snooze. Every song sounds like a generic mish-mash of basic melodies and chords we have heard thousands of times before from every “alternative” act in the last decade. Possibly one of the most disappointing albums of the year considering that their previous album suggested that Young the Giant had finally found their artistic footing with some incredibly catchy hooks, a distinctive sound, and a playful confidence that is sorely missing on this record. I pray that Young the Giant spend more time perfecting their sound, because they really were onto something with their last album, and now they are taking a huge step backwards.
Older stuff is better.
It’s not bad
They have changed so much since they were The Jakes. First two albums are awesome and some of the songs from the third are good as well but this isn’t anything special. Hopefully they will get back to their roots.
Lovely music; these guys never disappoint! Check out Tightrope and You + I.
My least favorite album of theirs but it’s still pretty good.
Young the giant is back

This whole album is revivifying. Funk and chill sounds all around. Glad to see them back in action!
Not what I was expecting
I am a huge YTG fan...but this album as a whole is not what I was expecting. I enjoyed the first two singles and a few songs on the album are pretty good, but overall I'm disappointed and was expecting more from them. I understand they were trying a different perspective from Home of the Strange, but I miss that orignal sound from their debut album, which is by far their best.
as beautiful as first and third album! maybe their best yet
