10 Songs, 33 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

By their own admission, You Me At Six’s 2017 album Night People was a miss after the 2014 hit Cavalier Youth. With their sixth album, aptly titled VI, the pop-rock band makes amends. They sound stronger and more energized on tracks like “Straight to My Head” and “Danger,” both combustible mixes of alt-rock swagger and melody. When they stir in moody synths and danceable rock, like on “3AM” and “Fast Forward,” it’s as if they’re channeling their inner Nine Inch Nails. Then there are fluid nods to hip-hop (“I.O.U.”) and R&B (“Back Again”). Tying it all together is frontman Josh Franceschi, showing a feral hunger that propels You Me At Six back on the front foot.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

Great songs but a few flaws

I love the album and how different it is but I felt like there was just several things missing and the tracks could have been longer on this album as it’s the 6th album

I stayed home from school for this album...

And was beyond not disappointed. This was a bop and I could not have asked for more from them.
