Garage rock kings, Cage the Elephant, are pretty highly respected in most circles. They've managed to break out, getting radio play on local rock stations as well as the top 40 stations. On Social Cues, the band stays in their comfort zone while providing several tunes worthy of air play alongside a solid mix of backup tracks.
The emotion here is telling of the personal troubles Matt Shultz was going through at the time, and there is a hint of darkness painted behind the scenes of every song on the album. You can dance to most of the album, or you can drink in the dark to it.
Either way, it's a pretty good release that is worth checking out regardless of how you choose to do so.
