Cash Cash Overtime
There's a lot of diversity here in terms of instrumentation, even though it's all electronics anyhow. The composition elements are great, and the songs ooze catchiness and are wonderfully mastered. Cash Cash have really found their niche with this type of music, but the lack raw instrumentation does hurt the album slightly. It would've been nice to hear at least one track that utilized an actual piano, drum, guitar, or bass.
Falling in Reverse Just Like You
I actually really liked "Fashionably Late". The rapping did make me cringe at first, but after enough listens -
the album really began to grow on me. Now we're at "Just Like You", and this album attempts to differ in
songwriting style, but comes across as more of the same. In fact, a lot of these songs are what you'd expect to
come from Falling in Reverse. Sure, there are highlights like "Guillotine IV", "The Bitter End", and the
surprisingly mellow "Brother"...but it's not enough to push it past average. Oh, and "Wait and See" and "Get Me
Out" may be perhaps two of the worst songs the band has ever wri
Daft Punk Random Access Memories
Daft Punk deliver another fantastic album, this time incorporating live-instruments melded with electronics to deliver a sound that's almost standard nowadays, yet feels completely fresh thanks to the groove-throwbacks scattered throughout "Random Access Memories". The evolution of the record track-by-track is what makes it worth the experience, but listeners may feel unimpressed due to the songs each staying in the same key until a change happens in "Within". My personal favorite tracks: "Contact", "Touch", and "Giorgio by Moroder".
Alive Like Me Only Forever
I think there's one song that doesn't have the same tempo as all of the others on this record. Most of the songs kind-of blend together, as the album never takes time to breathe and just constantly hits the listener with fast, pulsing, catchy songs. At 32 minutes, it's a really fun listen; just don't expect anything groundbreaking.
Daft Punk Discovery
A masterpiece that was (and still almost is) ahead of its time.
Thirty Seconds to Mars Love Lust Faith + Dreams
The issue with the album is that for waiting 4 years for a new 30 Seconds to Mars album, this one feels really substantial. Including two instrumental tracks that lack inspiration, songs like "Birth"/"End of All Days"/"Debus de Debut" that feel strangely out of place, and lacking a decent length; much of this album gives off the 'phoned in' kind of vibe. However, there are tracks such as "Bright Lights" and "Do or Die" that feel like a step in a good direction for the band. As I still prefer the sound used on "A Beautiful Lie", I can't necessarily say I'd want them to take this direction - but it still enjoy the music.
Thirty Seconds to Mars A Beautiful Lie
It's a solid rock album. Every track has a decent length, and feels perfectly placed for the album. Tracks like "From Yesterday" and "Was It A Dream" and the title track all are fantastic highlights, but the whole album in general will sway the listener in different emotions. These are all great emotions though; as this album truly is a classic.
