“A Music Social Network Driven By The Fans, For Fans,” is how the Bowling Green based music website SoundLion.com is described by those running the website. Ranging from a media player to play music on to music reviews it’s a Cornucopia of music and if your a music lover you should enjoy it.
Here is a sampling of one of their reviews. It’s a review by Ricky Adams of SoundLion.com reviewing Bowling Green based Alt-Rock Band ‘Cage the Elephant.’
Up and Coming Kentucky rockers Cage the Elephant just released their second studio album under Relentless Records. The boys from Bowling Green have been hard at work touring the United States and Europe to climb the ranks of music, opening for bands as successful as The Stone Temple Pilots. The band’s new album, Thank You Happy Birthday, is proof their hard work is paying off. After the release of their first self-titled album, Cage was received with open arms into the UK’s rock n roll scene. Lesser known in the states, singles like “Aint no rest for the Wicked” and “Back Against the Wall” did bring the band some commercial success. It seems their stock will keep rising with fans when Thank You Happy Birthday hits their headphones. The opening track, “Always Something”, combines electronic beats with front man Matt Shultz’s chilling vocals and kicks the album off perfectly. Thank you Happy Birthday then begins to surprise the listener track after track as the band brings something new to the table with every song. For those who want to get loud (and let’s face it, who doesn’t) “Sabertooth Tiger” and “Indy Kidz” will more than satisfy even the most diehard head bangers out there. However, the band also shows their range by slowing it down in tracks like “Rubber Ball” and the album’s final track “Flow.” Thank You Happy Birthday‘s first single, and possibly the album’s best track, “Shake Me Down”, could be the song Cage the Elephant needs to take it over the top. The album as a whole is a positive step forward for the boys from Bowling Green and despite what their name may say about them, this band’s success cannot be caged in for much longer. 4/5.
