Maybe such an effort on his own behalf would truly be derivative of the Strokes, etc. Maybe his view is jaded by his own experience. Why isn't it possible that these guys are just being true to themselves and the ir music? Why can't this music be genuine and heart-felt? Maybe it is others who are preoccupied with image and marketing, not the Cold War Kids themselves.
That's what I choose to believe, anyway. I spent some time on their website reading their "journal". I was impressed with what I felt was sincere, genuine, and very humorous. As far as I'm concerned these guys created a fantastic album that is a representation of who and what they are rather than what they are "trying" to be.
I'm blessed to have experienced it. I encourage you to experience it for yourself. Regarding the Amazon reviewer, I suggest he is projecting his own pretentiousness onto the "Kids. I'd barely heard any tracks from the Cold War Kids before listening to this album.
I expected to like Hang Me Out to Dry but wasn't looking for much beyond that. Well, I'll admit I'm surprised that this is one of those albums where pretty much every song is great.
There are no duds. Plus there are a bunch of songs that are fabulous. I've listened to the album a bunch already and I'm still not tired of it. One person found this helpful. Thanks a lot, Jacquire King. You helped rape Modest Mouse in , you ruined Kings of Leon for us in after working with Ethan Johns on one of the best albums of the , "Aha Shake Heartbreak" , and then in you completed the burial of Cold War Kids.
The album sings of alcoholism and families, of church and homelessness, of clerk jobs and college boys, of hospital beds and wife-mother collusion.
Sometimes boppy almost hip-hop in delivery, the lyrics appropriately capture what it means to be a middle-aged, middle-income, or middle-brained American. Blues roots are obvious, the guitar riffs on songs like Rubidoux approach something akin to Albert Hammond, Jr.
The most popular song off the album, the much-aired Hang Me Up to Dry, might have the album's only drawback in that the obnoxious piano cacophony that hipsters pretended to enjoy disrupts an otherwise mind-pounding and fitting rhythm.
Still, Willett's haunting screeches sound to be restrained by the mind of a man who doesn't want to tell all, which is what makes the album that much more enjoyable - the anticipation of more. Unfortunately, we never got more. Loyalty to Loyalty didn't come close, and Cold War Kids finally lost their way artistically when Jacquire King begged the mainstream for platinum status that never came.
One of the best albums of all time. Unfortunately, imo, they lose the ramshackle jam session sound in future albums. This album is amazing! I haven't been able to take it out of my CD player since I got it! The music is creative and catchy. Upon my first or second listen, I wasn't sure if I liked it because of the singer's voice. I thought it might get annoying to listen to over and over. Once I realized that he uses his voice more like one of the instruments, I really started to enjoy it.
He sounds a bit like Robert Plant who I love. Some of the music, at times, reminds me of Zepplin or White Stripes, but with 50's surfer-type guitar riffs. Zulfiya [committed suicide] in the cell, unable to withstand the beatings. Gavrilova Tanya was almost killed. They handcuffed her to the grate and three of them, including the head of the colony, kicked her, struck her on the head, and her pelvis was broken. She became an invalid.
If a prisoner was working bad, the women-guards beat her up with sticks. While a woman-prisoner was sitting and sewing, the woman-guard was coming from behind and beat her on the head. After this when a column of prisoners is marching, everyone has bruises. One gray mass. The situation with pregnant arrested women in pretrial prisons and women-prisoners in labor colonies is especially tragic and inhuman.
In the spring of , in total there were 47, women-prisoners in Russia. Three quarters of them were between the ages of 20 and 35, that is, in the most suitable age for the bearing and giving birth to children.
Many of the arrested learn that they are pregnant while in prison. According to Russian law, a woman with a child under three years of age should not be separated from the child, but in practice [during the arrest of the mother] children are not taken into the prison.
The FSIN does not take into account the documents about pregnancy from outside medical institutions. This means that a woman with a big belly, visible to everyone, is placed in a cell with other women-prisoners. If you visit such a cell, you see a pregnant woman laying on the concrete floor.
On a thin mattress. There are no ladder to the second bunk, of course. The attitude to the pregnant prisoner will not change and no additional food will be given to her until the prison doctor registers her pregnancy. And the meeting with the doctor is sometimes delayed for months. Women-prisoners often tell us that the FSIN officers are trying to persuade them to have an abortion. In these hospitals, pregnant prisoners are handcuffed to their beds during labor, which can last several hours or all day, so the hospital employees do not need not to sit and watch the patient.
However, FSIN workers can always simply say that the pregnant woman-prisoner was inclined to escape. Two hours after the delivery, the woman-prisoner is taken back to her cell. Babies remain for a month in the hospital, and then they are brought to the mothers kept in their cells. Therefore, there is no breast feeding at all. Those women-prisoners who have already given birth, are forced to write a power of attorney to the cellmate, that she will take care of the baby while the mother is taken to the court session.
According to law, there should be beds for babies. But babies are sleeping with their mothers. In general, every child born in prison has a whole bunch of diseases which are not treated. If there is an inflammatory process or the temperature rises sharply, an ambulance is called in and the child is hospitalized. The mother, of course, remains in her cell. Streams Videos All Posts.

Track Listing - Disc 1. Hang Me Up to Dry. Cold War Kids. We Used to Vacation. Hospital Beds. I've Seen Enough. Louder Than Ever. Royal Blue.I wasn't a big fan of the Cold War Kids' full length album, but I definitely considered Hospital Beds to be one of the immediate stand-out tracks as well as my favorite song on the CD. This single evidently has a live version of Old St. John also, which was again among my top three favorites for its 5/5(1).
