I remember really liking their first album I reviewed, so I'm excited for another one. Plus, the first single was released on my 23rd birthday, so they automatically have a place in my heart.
Check out the Spotify listen link if you're interested in hearing it as I do.
We start off with "Future Starts Slow" and this sweet beat. I don't know how to pinpoint exactly what it is, but I'm really digging the background music used here. The voices, maybe not so much, but they're maybe blended a little too oddly, creating a ghost-like charm. But man, when that guitar comes back in to carry the beat back up, I'm entranced again. I'm not sure what a long-lasting love I'll ever have for it, but I like the track for now.
"Wild Charms" is lulling. No really, it's just so tiresome. The man's voice is doing nothing to help, even though it's the first real solo we've gotten from him side. I need to stop writing these between reading the A-Z humor column on PWTorch (wrestling site). I get to snarky.
She back for "DNA" but not in a very different way. It's still a bit dragging, though her dark voice gives a tone that's at least a bit interesting. I would be happy if they got rid of the "oh oh ohs" in their songs. Otherwise, this song actually eventually grows on me. It's a pretty dark look at life and conforming, I think. Or else that's just what my twisted mind is telling me.
Oh now I'm just getting hostile for no real reason towards y'all. Sorry. Rough/weird afternoon. Anywhos, we're picking the pace back up with "You Don't Own The Road." It's got that weird effect that makes it all grit and no pop. I'm not complaining - it's a cool sound and we're able to get our rock on a little more-so than before. I appreciate it as a track.
Added to My Playlist:
- "Heart Is A Beating Drum"
- "Baby Says"
- "You Don't Own The Road"
Commmeennnttttt. Come on, you know you want to rip me for the stupid jokes here. Hell, even I want to. Seriously though, what's on y'all's minds?
