Keep the faith.

Short answer: itís good. Show Your Bones capitalises on the colour and confidence of single, Gold Lion, baffling the law of diminishing returns. More than The Karen O Show, as integral are Brian Chaseís on-point drumming and Nick Zinnerís distorted guitar, lurching into frame like a zombie. As on Warrior, which builds from intimate confessional to triumphant, half-speed chorus. Follow-up albums are too easily lauded as the Second Coming. This isnít. But fans will find it less curateís egg than holy roller.

James Cowdery 23 March 06 rating of 4

This has to be the album of the year man. It's fab from start to finish. The Lion is definately gold.
