Review Summary: indie trash

Indie music is becoming a pile of dog *** lately. Fun set the world on fire, and because of it, indie music has taken a turn for the worse. Look no further than Imagine Dragon's craptastic debut album, Night Visions. It has no emotion whatsoever and also is bland and boring. Bland as *** and repetitive, it is crap.
Lead single Radioactive was the band's biggest hit, and it opens the album rather nicely. With a dubstep feel reminiscent of thrash metal and angry vocals, the angst highlights the penetrating anger and fury, which is what I look for. The more angrier an album is, the better. "I'M WAKING UP I FEEL IT IN MY BONES" like an orgasm haha

"Tiptoe" and its 80's-synth riff produces the only other highlight on the album. It's pretty ***ing catchy and has good vocals by Danny Rennolds. But that's where the fun ends. Because the rest of the album. is pure crap. "It's Time" has corny lyrics and some lyrics that don't mean bull***. "I'm never changing who I am" belongs in baby shows, while "Giving the academy a rain check" is meant for pretentious ***s.

"Demons" rips off Cold Play, an already *** band to begin with. It's slow, and inane as ***. Pussy rock at its finest. The chorus is anthemic and arena-meant for, yet comes up empty in the end. "On Top of the World" is practiclly the worst song on the album. It's confident, and I hate confidence. Music is meant to express depression, not happiness. I hate confident people, I want them to suffer, and I want the Imagine Dragons to do so too.

Rennolds' vocals aren't that good besides from Radiaoctive and Tiptoe. They are pretty bland, and on songs like Underdog or Rocks they end up falling short. THe backing band is alright, I gues. Does anyone agree with me? Because "Amsterdam" proves that the band has nothing left, ripping off "Tiptoe" on the same damn album.

The band doesnot deserve anyof their success. Cage the Elephant, Cold War Kids and The 1975 are pretty good indie bands that should have the top ten singles that Imagine Fagons take. It's pure *** that happens to strike a chord with Pitchfork kids and teen girls who want to be edgy but can't listen to actual metal or hard core. This and Mumford are some of the *** that brings indie down.

God awful review. Spend more time developing your diction and avoid the immature 12 year old rantings that words like "craptastic", and falling back on crutches like "pitchfork kids and teen girls" that make the reader think that you're just cut from the same cloth

"Music is meant to express depression, not happiness"

Excuse me? Don't get me wrong, I liked depression being expressed through music better than happiness but come the fuck on. Music is meant to express whatever emotion your feeling. Goddamn this whole review is just cancer. Neg'd so hard
