10 Songs, 37 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Melophobia means “fear of music,” but there is nothing to be scared of on Cage the Elephant’s shimmering third album. The Kentucky garage rockers build this catchy collection on spiraling guitars (“Telescope”), splashy drums (“It’s Just Forever”), and sunshine melodies that could break the thickest cloud cover (see: the ‘60s garage homage “Hypocrite”). Melophobia blends decades of mind-melting sounds to create a psych-infused monster of a rock ‘n’ roll record, before wrapping with the unforgettable, lush pop gem “Cigarette Daydreams.”

They've finally done it.

I've always wanted to love this band for an entirety of an album. CTE and TY,HB were good but far from extraordinary. However, both albums had at least four amazing songs which made up for the album. Now with "Melophobia" they might not be getting those top charting songs and have the drive of songs like "Shake Me Down" or "Ain't No Rest" but rest assured the entirety of this record is quality and it's easily their best album for being an album and not a few songs. Now you may disagree with me on this but I have thought this out listening through each album and all of their albums are good but they just seemed weak with a couple of amazing racks where Melophobia is an amazing album missing the amazing tracks. It all makes up for itself since all their albums go hand-in-hand together very well so there's no loss by what it sounds like I'm saying. This is a superb record and I hope to listen to it more throughtout the coming months. 4.5/5
