iTunes Review

For their second full-length album, Young the Giant tapped producer Justin Meldal-Johnsen, a longtime Beck collaborator whose production credits include boundary-blurring rockers like Blood Orange, M83, and Neon Trees. Meldal-Johnsen’s subtle, densely textured aesthetic is ideal for the expansive, guitar-driven rock on Mind Over Matter. While the majority of the album is filled with hard-driving anthems and shout-along choruses (“Crystalized,” “Anagram,” “It’s About Time”), the band also incorporate textures of jazz, darkwave, and electropop to offer a riveting and unpredictable ride.

Reliably Incredible

I first discovered YTG on myspace back in 2010 and was instantly hooked on My Body. I was able to see them front row in Detroit in 2012 and already have my ticket for their show in NYC in 2014. By far the best performers I've seen with originality, style, density to their music & sound, and all around BA-ness. I met them too and they're such chill dudes. They will forever be my favorite band of all time

It’s About Time!!!
