As Tall As Lions/Mutemath

October 2, 2009

as tall as lionsEarly reviews of the You Can’t Take With You have been overwhelmingly positive, RCRDLBL said, “….an intimate side to Long Island-bred As Tall As Lions that is as timeless as it is timely.” While Alternative Press gave the record 4 stars, saying “…dizzyingly brilliant, and evidence of how tall these Lions Have grown.”

The album comes in three formats, a standard version, a deluxe version, that comes with a DVD featuring a 30 minute documentary about the making of YCTWY (it took well over a year) as well as live songs from the band’s sold out 2007 NYC performance. The vinyl album also comes as a 2-disc gatefold, with 4 bonus tracks.

The third full-length album by New York’s As Tall as Lions, You Can’t Take It With You, is a thoughtful, textured tour de force of soundscapes, vocal harmonies, melodies and insightful lyrics about the modern world. The songs’ subject matter faces head-on the politics of God, love, war, and the human condition while examining everyday struggles such as anxiety, isolation, and money.” With You Can’t Take It With You, the band; vocalist-guitarist Dan Nigro, guitarist Saen Fitzgerald, bassist Julio Tavarez and drummer Cliff Sarcona, has made its smartest and most impressive album to date.
