WU LYF (an acronym of World Unite Lucifer Youth Foundation) have recorded one of the year's most highly anticipated debut records. The band ? a quartet from Manchester UK aged between 20 and 22 ? spent much of 2010 purposely avoiding the glare of the UK music industry. Instead they spent the year honing their live shows and perfecting the songs and story that would become Go Tell Fire To The Mountain. Fiercely independent, WU LYF decided to self-record, produce and release their debut album around the world on their own L Y F imprint.

Maybe I'm overreacting but I love everything about the album. The lead singer half sings, half screams and a lot of the lyrics I am not sure I comprehend, but I don't care. The energy and passion in every wailed note is pure rock 'n' roll (in a cathartic way), exalting the same powerful emotion whether loving you forever or spitting blood. The drums are huge, the guitars chime and then attack and then take off in solos, and then, when you least expect it, the piano takes over and the mood is nice and chill...for awhile.
It sounds raw, so be prepared. Organs battle for space with drums while the bass tries to hold it down underneath, and at times, everything seems to blend together into one cacophonous din. This is a good thing, however. This album is about spirit, energy, playing with emotion and letting the music take over and just happen.
Sorry if I made it sound too hippie. BUT I LOVE THIS ALBUM!
