Cold War Kids: Loyalty To Loyalty

Cold War Kids
Loyalty To Loyalty
Downtown Records [2008]

Fire Drills Review:
Cold War Kids sophomore outing Loyalty To Loyalty takes several spins to get into but once you allow it a chance the songs start to stick with you and their appeal kicks in. I think this extra caution comes from the record being more mature, conventional and a cleaner production than their debut. At the end of the day Cold War Kids have the potential to make a killer album and many avenues they travel down on Loyalty To Loyalty can get them there for album number three!

Key Track: "Mexican Dogs"

Band With Similar Fire: The Walkman
