U.S. pressing of the self titled debut album by this band, who hail from Kentucky. Cage the Elephant are a band of syncopated groove- oriented Rock 'N' Rollers whose goal is to convey power to their audience through their music without the interference of too much background information, preferring to let their music be their message. Their Mission Statement is: 'Frantic Volume -Laden Maximum Rock 'N' Roll!' 2009.

The vocals of Matt Schultz is definitely the most enticing part of the band as although it's not something I haven't heard before, he has a sort of reminiscent rebellious tone to his voice that I'm not sure why but remind me of the great punk bands the Ramones, The Clash and even the Sex Pistols. Cage The Elephant are nowhere near as controversial as these legendary bands, but they're certainly just as loud and abrupt and really make you want to get on your feet and go nuts when listening to their music.

The guitar and bass by Brad Shultz, Daniel Titchenor and Lincoln Parish definitely add to that old school feel and sometimes mimic the equally awesome guitar talents of Pistols guitarist Steve Jones.

My Top 5 are

1. Aint No Rest For The Wicked
2. In One Ear
3. Back Stabbin' Betty
4. James Brown
5. Free Love
