VI |You Me At Six
Most accessible You Me At Six album to dateAttention grabbing
4.0On repeat for a week.

You Me At Six are back again with their sixth studio album, appropriately titled VI. It should be well established at the start of this review that VI is to You Me At Six what That’s The Spirit is to Bring Me The Horizon. It is not heavy, it’s not angry, and is going to be divisive between fans of the band’s more recent work, and the fans of the first three albums. Because of this, VI will likely be severely underrated. What makes this even worse is that this album should be in the conversation for the band’s best, as it is a very complete, cohesive, and effective selection of songs that grabs you from the start and does not let loose its grip on your attention until it has shown everything it has to offer and comes to a close. You Me At Six has shown that rock, especially rock stemming from post-hardcore roots, does not need to be heavy to be good, and could be just as good (if not better) when just letting itself be a fun, accessible, more radio-friendly alternative presentation. 

That being said, VI is definitely on the more alternative, radio-rock end of music. Each song on the record sounds like a song that comes on the radio between songs by Twenty One Pilots and Imagine Dragons. This is not a bad thing whatsoever, it just solidifies and confirms the band’s change of sound.

 Between the catchy vocals, groovy bass lines, and an excellent trio of musicians at the guitars and drums, there’s not much bad to say about this release. Check it out. It isn’t the You Me At Six of old. It is, however, music that the band can be proud of, and rightfully so. 


Please wait...

A message from the Editor/Founder of Amped Sound, Danielle

Hello everyone! I have an announcement to make that pains me greatly. Amped Sound will be taking a hiatus.
