Album Review

If Too Young to Fight It found Dan Keyes burning up the dancefloor, its successor relocates him to the rock club, where emo-pop anthems emanate from the stereo and new wave revivalism reigns supreme. Keyes has explored those genres before, both with Recover's unapologetically emotive work and Young Love's club-ready debut, but One of Us is the first to feature a synthesis of the two. The frontman dives headfirst into the mix, embracing everything from fat, gauzy synthesizers to R&B basslines, robotic samples, handclaps, and assorted '80s-era flourishes. This is party music, and Keyes makes no attempt to inflate it with lyrical prowess or songwriting depth, preferring instead to shine a spotlight on the glossy, spruced-up surface. "I got my black boots on, gonna show up late," he declares in "Black Boots," "but that's ok because we won't leave 'til dawn." It's a simple sentiment that reflects the world One of Us caters to: the world of late-night Manhattan bars and dancefloor affairs, a world in which footwear symbolizes the extent to which one is ready to party. Throughout it all, the emphasis remains on rock, with even the most danceable songs taking root in electric guitars and live percussion. "Black Boots" even shoots for stadium-sized grandeur, its singalong chorus aimed at the cheap seats, before dissolving into an Auto-tuned outro. The songs suffer whenever Keyes dials back the sonic spectacle, with tracks like "Down on Me" owing more to post-grunge balladry than contemporary dance-rock. Despite the album's surface-oriented appeal, however, the bulk of One of Us remains stronger than Young Love's previous release, as it wisely targets the feet instead of the head.

Customer Reviews

AMAZING album.

After hearing the full album on imeem, i can honestly say that this is one of the greatest techno/electronic/rock/whatever albums ever. Dan Keyes is amazingly talented, and this album definitely proves that. Black Boots is, of course, a great song, but all of the rest are excellent as well. I find this album more organized than the last one, but both of them are almost perfect.

i LOVE young love ....

Dan Keyes can sing anything he wants. Every song on this album is amazing, and I encourage EVERYONE to buy it.... you won't regret it!!!!

great album!

I love this CD! just bought it and I've already listened to it a few times through. It's such an enjoyable CD! I own the CD before this one and I actually enjoy this one more. Every track is so catchy. "The Picture" is my favorite track so far. You're missing out if you don't check this band out, the CD is fun, and they're even more fun live so I recommend checking them out live if you can too! :)


Formed: 2005 in New York, NY

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s

The dance-rock outfit Young Love is headed by Dan Keyes, who served as frontman for the post-grunge band Recover from 2001 to 2004. After releasing three albums with that Austin-based group, Keyes relocated from Texas to New York City in search of new environs and a change of pace. Within a year's time, he had amassed a wealth of new material that had more in common with Bloc Party and Action Action than the aggressive sounds of Recover. Young Love was born, and a record deal with Island Def Jam...
