Review: Tell Me I'm Pretty

The fourth album included in Cage The Elephant’s resume has a lot to live up to. The group’s worldwide success, and catalogue of chart topping hits from previous albums left many impressive expectations to fulfill. How was the band supposed to live up to the success of Melophobia? What album could the Kentucky boys possibly create that would satisfy both the lovers of their heavier sounds, and the cherishers of slower paced masterpieces such as “Cigarette Daydreams” and still hold a voice of its own? Their answer to the hype was Tell Me I’m Pretty. An excellent edition in Cage The Elephant’s collection, whether in the form of a CD, vinyl or digital file, Tell Me I’m Pretty deserves to be listened to this holiday season. Tell Me I’m Pretty effortlessly flows from alternative rock and roll, to head bobbing slow jams, to riffs that resemble the days of hand jives and back again. Being a Cage The Elephant fan’s dream album, Tell Me I’m Pretty delivers mindlessly fun music that, when closely examined, contain themes of courage, determination and the importance of people to lean on.
