England’s You Me at Six’s name must be a reference to the estimated target audience of the band because I cannot fathom anyone over that age being remotely interested in their brand of forgettable, radio-ready pop-rock. But even then I feel a bit guilty, like I’m underestimating six-year-olds. Somehow their predictable compositions and questionable subject matter landed them a deal with major label Virgin Records in their native England for their sophomore LP, after 2008/2009’s Epitaph-assisted debut Take Off Your Colours. Ultimately, on Hold Me Down the band sounds like they sat down for a few hours watching Taking Back Sunday and Matchbook Romance videos and decided they would make themselves a shilling or two by cranking out songs with a fraction of a talent of those bands.
