This album is great. I like complex albums, but sometimes simple is the best direction an album can take, and You Me at Six’s new album Night People is a prime example of that. It has hints of AFI in some of the tracks, bringing it some depth but the Kings Of Leon style pop rock on Heavy Soul and the calming ballad on take on the world is easy listening and very enjoyable, and is just one of those albums where it exists to enjoy, not to pick apart its musical qualities. I haven’t listened to any of You Me At Six’s previous albums, but given the enjoyment this album brought me, I will probably have a listen to their discography. Side A is full of suprises and Side B continues with the simplistic rock in the first three tracks.
