Today is shaping up to be chock full of free full album streams. Cold War Kids can now be added to the list of albums to listen to after excellent full lengths from Destroyer and Iron & Wine. You can stream Cold War Kid's Mine Is Yours below:
First listen impression: Cold War Kids lead singer Nathan Willett is still the best thing about this band — by a long shot — but the songs here sound rehashed, dated and unimaginative. Like the latest set from fellow indie-be-gone rockers, Kings of Leon, the album suffers when its only standout quality is an admittedly unique voice.
Recommendation: If you love the rest of the Cold War Kids' discography, you won't be disappointed by Mine Is Yours, especially with songs like "Finally Begin;" a true blue highlight. If recent albums from Band of Horses and Kings of Leon didn't quite strike your fancy, move along, this is more of the same.
