When I initially heard the songs of the band Cage the Elephant, what caught my attention was their fresh sound. Their music is new, very original, and fun to listen to. It is so much different from the usual mess of alternative rock bands, which inevitably all sound painfully analogous. For instance, their single, "Ain't No Rest for the Wicked" is catchy with a wonderfully quirky beat, whereas "Lotus" and "In One Ear" have powerfully political lyrics. Cage the Elephant is a young, southern rock band with a lot to say about modern society (they are not afraid to "stand up to the man" so to speak). They are not that cliche band which whines about lost love and trivial emotions, but a highly inspired group with intelligent, powerful - though sometimes frustrated - messages. To me, they are reminiscent of the Kinks, but more unrefined and "spunky". (This is especially true in their song "Free Love.") I would reccommend Cage the Elephant to anyone who enjoys saavy new rock. Even with that expected teenage angst, they offer a welcome change to the mainstream, uninspired and hardly intelligent modern rock band with a thought-provoking new twist.

I bought Cage the Elephant because I had heard one song and fell in love with the original beat. I wasn't disappointed. The entire cd from the first track to the last is original and worth playing. Each song has its own message with quite a few political and universal undertones, but they're done quite skillfully. Definitely try this cd out.
