4 stars You Know What They Mean is an improvement from their previous release Land Animal, which did not do that much for me. It was an average album compared to the raw energy of the previous efforts. You Know What They Mean turns things back around by adding a little bit of Zappa's anything goes, along with the raw energy from the earlier albums. It is loaded with excellent songs, and Give Us the Gold may be one of the best Bent Knee tracks of all their albums. Courtney Swain sounds amazing as ever, and the band sounds even more experimental than usual. They really put effort into making this album crazy without sounding commercial or over-produced. Ben Levin and company created some memorable arrangements, and the band really turned out a gem.
