You Me At Six Continue Success With Fantastic Album!
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 17/03/2010 14:27:36
I am a huge fan of 'You Me At Six' and 'Hold Me Down' continues my admiration for them. A more mature sound that will gain them a lot of new fans. They are a band on the road to bigger and better things and 'Hold Me Down' should see them with a ticket to the 'Big Time'. Fantastic!

Just Musical Excellence
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 15/02/2010 11:55:12
You Me At Six are one of the best young Rock bands around and with Hold Me Down have created one of the best albums created in the last few years.
All the songs are very strong and powerful musical genius which has created a brilliant album.

YM@6 fans will all know how unbelievably brilliant 'Take Off Your Colours' was and i, personally, didnt think they would top it. Glad to be proven wrong, I have been listening to this album endlessly since i bought it and havnt grown tired off any of the songs. They well and trully proved how much they have grown. The music is tighter than ever and Josh's voice has progressed so much. Top songs; 'safer to hate her', 'liquid confidence' and 'accidental infidelity'.

Heads and Shoulders Above Take Off Your Colours!
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 16/01/2010 12:12:14
From the opening song to the last this album shows just how much this band have progressed. Admittedly i am a new youmeatsix fan, only bought their first album after going to see them when they supported Paramore. But they blew me away! For me the standout songs are Underdog, Playing the Blame Game, Liquid Confidence, Trophy Eyes and Stay With Me! But they are all fantastic, just play it from start to finish! Highly recommend! Amazing!

Great Follow Up
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 16/01/2010 09:13:48
Alot of bands release a debut album full of outstanding tracks but when they come to release a second album it either doesnt live up to the hype or it simply falls short when compared to the first album this is definatly not the case with You Me At Six's follow up album Hold Me Down every track is as good as the last with some very powerful tracks added to this album of which there was only really one on the previous album Always Atrract.
Underdog is a very catchy track but then I could say that about all 12 tracks.
My personal favourite track off the album would be Theres No Such Thing As Accidental Infidelity but thats just my opinion.
Either way if your a fan of YMAS then this is a must have and if your only just hearing this brilliant band then maybe you should also buy Take Off Your Colours aswell as this album..you wont be disappointed.

Outdone By Themselves
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 11/01/2010 19:52:31
i would like to say that the review below mine has a few songs mixed up ( for instance aled phillips from kids in glass houses actually performs in There's no such thing and accidental infidelity)
The Consequence- Been relased prior to the album and was a great taster for what was to come, it is a punchy almost violent song that shows they are still out to put on a good time. they also return to their roots of having massive ending to their songs and in this song they also call in the help of Blackout vocalist Sean Smith who lends some screams in the background paying homage to their roots once again ( their demos often contained screamo)
Underdog- Short sweet and punchy, a very catchy song that has a few similarities to Kiss And Tell and is a nice reminder of their skill
Playing The Blame Game-has and incredibly catchy chorus and would be an amazing expreience live. this is probably the first song on the album to take a definate move from their debut Take Off Your Colours. this song cleary shows how the band have grow and so has their music
Stay With Me- this song is very up beat and will definately hook previous fan and draw in new fans. very likely to be a radio hit. josh ( vocalist) flexes the diversity of his vocals giving you mellow quiet parts only to contrast with a loud and strong chorus
Safer To Hate Her- a more heavier songs, giving the other band members to strut their stuff and they do not disappoint, however the vocals a very similar to take off your colours and have nice spikes of their original pop punk style
Take Your Breath Away- This sounds like something that was forgotten for Take Off Your Colours, if you liked them before this you will appreciate this song. could be a gem live
Liquid Confidence- a well placed relaxing song to prepare you for the rest, stunning vocals accompanied by great background beats that are then consumed by a catchy chorus and to top it off they have another one of their trade mark finales
Hard To Swallow- a cheery upbeat song with a great level of diversity in the vocal department with nice guitar solos dotted around with a beat that is perfect to clap too ( nice tocuh for parties or live)
Contagious Chemistry- a very different approach, very stop start verses that they make work for themselves very nicely and show how they can perform very differently to the crowds only to be forgotten with a fast paced chorus that will impress new and old fans without a doubt
Theres No Such Thing As Accidental Infidelity- Another stop start beat verses with nice guitar strums giving a melodic tone with a very mellow and relaxing chorus. it has a very impressive mix of tempo and is a definate "new" song, Take Off Your Colours was forgotten when they were writing this song. This song also incorporates the voice of Aled Phillips ( Vocalist of Kids In Glass Houses) who can be cleary heard in the background near the ending adding an unexpected vocal diversity to the song
Trophy Eyes- a very drum lead song that is obviously upbeat yet seems a darker song with an opening similar to that of Weight Of The World By Young Guns which also continues often in the background. its makes for a very interesting song that is in now way a dissapointment and builds up beatifully to fireworks
Fireworks- In my opinion this is a perfect You Me At Six song, its vocals talk of a perfect storyline that many people will relate to contains some amazing lyrics great drums with realxing melodic guitars that all build up to the mother of finales that juts gives you goosebumps.
All in all a very impressive album in which YM@S easily Give an amazing treat for your eyes, new and old fans will be chuffed without a shadow of a doubt, 5 stars!

Not quite Take Off Your Colours
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 11/01/2010 11:02:06
Jordan2010, the reason you couldn't hear Aled from KIGH on Trophy Eyes is because he's not on it. He's on "There's No Such Thing As Accidental Infidelity" and Sean Smith from The Blackout is on The Consequence.
As for the album, it's decent but not as good as TOYC. I'm glad I got tickets for this album but I'm sure seeing them live for their last tour will have been better.

You Me At Number 1
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 09/01/2010 17:17:33
You Me At Six' debuet album was great, although all songs sounded the same, wasnt a bad thing. You Me At Six, have come along way since then, the new album is sure to please current fans and will also attract new fans of the genre. Leadman Josh Franchesci =, powers out his vocal ability and the distinctive voice he has works the album miracles.
The Consequence - A powery drum song, which follows the same quitar beat and drum as Kiss and Tell, the song gets goin with a chorus which is typical You Me At SIx, it shows there old stance. Although not one of the albums best songs it is sure to start mosh pits in their headlining tour this year.
Underdog - This song was a great choice for a single. You can hear it for years to come on the radio. The song has a HUGE chorus and each verse sounds similary differnt. The downside to this song, its too short it is meerley 2:30.
Playin' The Blame Game - This is one of the 2 songs in the album which takes a different approach with a 80's indie-feel guitar tune. The song doesnt really reach a climax, it wont be a single but fans will like this one.
Stay With Me - This shows their 'emo' side. This song is sure to be a hit amongst fans and will attract new fans. Can cee this become a single sounds radio-friendly.
Safer To Hate Her - This is the real gem of the album. Sure to be a single has a huge chorus chanting the fabulous lyrics "Safer to hater than love her and loose her" will get fans singing after the first listen.
Take Your Breath Away - Old you me at six at its best. Sounds like a song from Take OF Your Colours.
Liquid Confidence - Another potential single. Starts of slow acoustic performance before horsing into the drum beat of the chorus. "you got nothing to loose" the lyrics, well thats what You Me At Six have at the minute.
Hard To Swallow - Again should be a missing track of Take Of Your Colours, sounds similar to 'Finders Keepers' and the rest of the band dont get enough praise but on this song they showed why their a band to follow.
Contagious Chemistry - The second of the two differnt guitar stances. It sounds Indie mixed with punk. A surprise hit amongst fans, but wont become a single.
Theres No Such Thing As Accitental Infedelity - Another thunderous drum and bass during the verses before going in a punk chorus with the potential to be a huge hit amongst fans, just lacks a cutting edge. A song which will roar live.
Trophy Eyes - Possibly the worst sing on the album. When i say worst i dont mean terrible either. Featuring Aled from 'Kids In Glass Houses' the song is just average. Although i have listened plenty times and failed to hear Aled.
Fireworks - The clonclusion. You Me At Six never let us down when it comes to slow songs. This song starts slow with Josh showing his versatility on this. The song pleases fans for sure. Then to close the song out Josh belts out "i dont know who you are" which brings the song to live, a hidden gem in the album.
Songs To Download: ALL, specifically; Stay With Me, Safer To Hate Her, Liquid Conifdence, Fireworks.
4/5 sure to be a hit. 2010 may just be You Me At Six' year.
