“I Love You” album keeps it cool

Whilst we Northerners are still in a bit of confusion whether or not to grab a jacket in the morning, indie-rock group The Neighbourhood can feel free to sing to me about “Sweater Weather” even on the hottest of days.

The Los-Angeles based band released their 13-track newest album “I Love You” in April 2013 following up their album “I’m Sorry…” released in August 2012, “I Love You” features radio hit “Sweater Weather” which has over 6 million views and is on iTunes top 100 for featured songs.

Users on Metacritic.com gave “I Love You” a score of 6.9 out of 10 rating. Review complaints consisting mostly of amateur lyrics. Media critic magazine PopMatters gave the album a rating of 50 out of 100 saying the album was an “extremely flawed debut with good intentions.”

The NBHD has a consistent sound throughout the album, their hit song is not tweaked to appeal to their targeted demographic to draw them in to buying the album.

I Love You” is highly recommended for various levels of activity ranging from background study music, music to make-out to, and car singing.

Ultimately, I dig it.
