That was actually my first thought. It’s too clean, but also sounds like a shaky record.
“Whether you love it, hate it, or simply don’t know what to make of it, Tyranny represents a fascinating new chapter for one of the most talented songwriters of his generation.”
It’s between love and hate, for me.
I’m on your side. All personalities/labels/etc etc aside, I’m still spinning Attack on Memory at least once a week, but I this album hasn’t hooked me for the last 2 weeks it’s been with me.
The songs don’t hit me as hard as AoM, and the turns from fast to slow feel a bit tactless. While I can’t get through AoM without hitting repeat for at least 2 songs, I’ve been taking breaks on this one, hoping my previous bias wouldn’t get to me. It hasn’t worked.
Then again, it took me like a year to realize how great AoM was, so maybe that’ll happen here too.
P.S. Is my “AoM” abbreviation annoying anybody?
This chemical does not exist. That is all.
Gotta agree with Ben on this one. I was just trying to hang out on the grass at Sasquatch last year, and Imagine Dragons had the main stage for ONE AND A HALF HOURS after Azealia Banks unsurprisingly cancelled.
I was also really impressed with how good their live sound was. They had all the big drums and a lot of good guitar work that you don’t hear on the record. Afterwards, I gave the record a chance, and I was really disappointed. Maybe they’ll bloom into a fantastic jam band, but my money’s on them going the way of shit generic “rock” pop.
Sarcasm is so hard via the internet.
You mean “message”, not “massage”.
That sir, is no xylophone. That is a gamelan.
…unless you were going for a pun, in which case, fantastico.
