“‘The War Is Over’ and ‘What I’m Becoming’ both have that sombre and smokey lounge act feel of The Last Shadow Puppets or Mini Mansions, but just revisit the more refined moments on ‘Melophobia’ and ‘Tell Me I’m Pretty’ and you’ll realise that it’s a guise that Cage The Elephant have carried within them all along,” wrote NME of ‘Social Cues‘.
““Seems like yesterday I was a child, just a ripple in the folds of time, I wish you well, I want to see you smile, it’s all right,” pines Shultz on the tender and intimate closer ‘Goodbye’ – another ode to the breakdown of his marriage. When all else fails, all you’re left with is yourself. This is the sound of Cage The Elephant exploring every corner of what they are.”
