- Originally issued in 2006, this Youth Group outing finally saw the light of day in the U.S. on the lauded Anti label in early '07, albeit with a slightly altered track listing.

While the ensemble, fronted by vocalist/guitarist Toby Martin, has garnered comparisons to Coldplay, the dynamic yet consistent CASINO proves that Youth Group can stand on its own merits.
