Cage the Elephant – Cage the Elephant (2008)
     Cage The Elephant released their first, self titled album in 2008 with an almost instant success. 
     The album is mainly a mix of alternative rock, punk and garage rock, but is also influenced by classic rock, funk, blues and well… Pixies. It shows even more in their second album, but we will get back to that later.
     There is not much left to reinvent in the rock music genre nowadays, yet somehow they have managed to surprise our ears. And what a huge surprise it is!
     I remember the first time I listened to this album - just right when I started to think nothing great can be made nowadays - and I immediately fell in love with it. Tight and heavy drums, beautiful guitar melodies, powerful bass and last, but not least: Matt Schultz. The guy is a natural talent! No doubt about the music being great, but personally, I think the vocals and lyrics are what makes this band (and album) really special.
     Cage The Elephant surely is the second best thing that ever happened to Kentucky… Right, colonel?
The article in two lines: Cage the Elephant have succeeded in bringing a fresh sound to an already saturated genre. Well done!
Cumulative score: 86,375/100

A 50- something year old white woman arrived at her seat on a crowded flight and immediately didn’t want the seat. The seat was next to a black man. Disgusted, the woman immediately summoned the flight attendant and demanded a new seat. The woman said “I cannot sit here next to this black man.” The fight attendant said “Let me see if I can find another seat.” After checking, the flight attendant returned and stated “Ma’am, there are no more seats in economy, but I will check with the captain and see if there is something in first class.” About 10 minutes went by and the flight attendant returned and stated “The captain has confirmed that there are no more seats in economy, but there is one in first class. It is our company policy to never move a person from economy to first class, but being that it would be some sort of scandal to force a person to sit next to such a disgusting, unpleasant person, the captain has agreed to allow the switch to first class.” Before the woman could say anything, the attendant turned to the black man and said, “Therefore sir, if you would please retrieve your personal items, we would like to move you to the comfort of first class, as the captain would hate for you to have to sit next to such a disgusting person.”
Passengers in the seats nearby began to applause while some gave a standing ovation.
