Not nearly as bad as I was expecting from the teaser for "Letting Go," one of the worst songs on the album. I mean, it's still BT, and it's still beautifully produced, but at this point in the "EDM craze" all this stuff has kinda been done before, y'know?
I am genuinely disappointed by this album. And I'm the kind of guy who 4.5s and 5s A LOT of
things. You could say I rate on impulse. A Song Across Wires sounds like an LP solely
made to appeal to the so-called "EDM" masses and market. I truly feel a lack of inspiration
and vision on this one, because inspiration and vision are precisely what made Ima
one of the greatest dance albums ever. Some valuable melodies here and there (i.e. on
"Skylarking"), but otherwise - generic beats, generic vocals, uninteresting
sounds and nonexistent atmospheres. For me, biggest let down of the year so far. In
fact, rarely have I been so disappointed by an album - it must be because I freakin'
love Ima and I expected too much.
