  • The second album by Fullerton, California, indie rockers Cold War Kids, LOYALTY TO LOYALTY, furthers the dark-toned Radio meets the Black Keys approach of their debut, ROBBERS AND COWARDS. Nathan Willets' vocals, which owe a debt to the likes of Nick Cave, Jack White, and the Gun Club's Jeffrey Lee Pierce, are even more striking in their pained tones, while the band's blend of chilly art pop and blues-influenced rock-&-roll bashing is more subtly and equitably distributed on tracks like "Every Valley is Not A Lake" and "Welcome To The Occupation." Though flashes of light occasionally surface on tunes like "Mexican Dogs" and "Dreams Old Men Dream," the despondent "Golden Gate Jumpers" is closer to the album's overall mood.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.72) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Cold War Kids attack their songs with unusual intensity, infusing even the most noirish, unsettling songs -- fractured narratives about hipster bohemia and suicide -- with a feeling of enchantment."

Entertainment Weekly (p.93) - "[S]tunning and haunted....What makes it all cohere so beautifully is the songwriting, which is as sharp as the sound is blurry..." -- Grade: A-

Paste (magazine) (p.61) - "'Against Privacy' opens the record with a sparse, slow-rolling statement of intent that nonchalantly revs to white with the furious ping and reverb of Jonathan Russell's guitar."

Clash (magazine) (p.115) - "The grit, grain and pastoral beauty of their debut is very much in effect here, with a lot more soul added for good measure, ensuring LOYALTY is a triumphant celebration of rustic elegance."

URB (Magazine) (p.85) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Song titles like 'Every Valley Is Not a Lake' and 'Something Is Not Right With Me' might sound like short stories, but the former is a bluesy jaunt through bar-hopping piano and the latter an inspiring burst of energy."
