You Me At Six is back with a new album and while they claim to have matured, I’m still hearing mostly the same thing on “Sinners Never Sleep”. If you are looking for a UK counterpart of acts like All Time Low and Panic At The Disco, then You Me At Six will do just fine. They’re doing nothing wrong and it all sounds like it’s aimed for the big leagues thanks to the GGGarth Richardson production job, but the songs just don’t stick.
One thing they don’t lack is good intentions. But it’s all so damn formulaic, right down to the obligatory ballads and the cliché-riddled lyrics about girls! If you’re thinking you do need another cutesy album in your collection, then by all means… pick up a copy of “Sinners Never Sleep”. But to me it’s like the “Bite My Tongue” documentary that comes with the album… it tells the story of the band and how hard it is to be on the Warped Tour. Again, nicely done but I’ve heard the stories a hundred times before.
