iTunes Editors’ Notes

From the Easybeats to AC/DC, Australian rock has held fast to a rowdy streak that ensures that musical mayhem is never far. You Am I is very much in this tradition, a band whose penchant for three-minutes-and-change bursts of catchy high energy has made the group bestsellers at home while relegating its overseas following to the small indie club circuit in the U.S. Convicts, its eighth album, finds You Am I making another stab at breaking America with barely updated ’70s-style kickers that recall early Who and Replacements. Tim Rogers’ sharply amusing, painful lyrics seal the deal, as he twists an old Cliff Richard hit into “It Ain’t Funny How We Don’t Talk Anymore” and breathes a relieved sigh: “Thank God I’ve Hit the Bottom.” Finally, the change-of-pace ballads don’t outdo the hardest of the rockers, but they do demonstrate that You Am I command more than one trick.

Customer Reviews

Sinfully Overlooked in the U.S.

Raw, straight-ahead rock would be the best way to describe You Am I's latest album. If you like The Who, T. Rex, The Kinks, The Replacements, you should check this out. Plus, if you ever have the opportunity to see them live...do it!

THANK YOU

That was for Andy kent who helped make vision valley with.... the best band ever, THE VINES

Sort of Moderny Classic

You Am I combines this fantastic classic rock sound with sort of a fresh twist. I found out about them by reading the booklet inside The Vines album Vision Valley because Andy Kent did some bass on that album. So i gave them a listen and i like what i hear.
