The 1975; I LIKE IT WHEN YOU SLEEP FOR YOU ARE SO BEAUTIFUL YET SO UNAWARE OF IT.
‘I Like it when you are So beautiful yet so unaware of it’ is the title of their new album which is currently at the top of the charts in the US and the UK.’Love Me’ the debut single has a ‘boy band feel’ and it reminds you of Duran Duran back in the day doing their thing. In this record you can tell that they are not trying to be a Rock band in the 1970’s but rather in the 1980’s and 1990’s. Another stand out track from the album is ‘I like it when you sleep which pays tribute to the 1980’s Rock and roll sound.
Other notable songs from this record are ‘ugh’,’The sound’,’somebody else’ and ‘A change of heart’.
Somewhat inevitably, The 1975 are better at some genres in the rock field than others. In as much as I’d want the album to be a crossover to the pop fans, there’s so much going on artistically in this record that it will predominantly appeal to the Rock fans only. If you are not a rock fan or a vast listener of alternative music,I fear you will not enjoy this album.
All together am proud of The 1975.kudos guys.
My Chemical Romance; Is one of the best bands for a 90’s kid. Their most popular album is ‘The Black Parade’ and still is a relevant and an influential punk Rock record. Their sound was refreshing and so was their concepts. Any rocker will tell you that their music legacy still lives on and am sure most of their fans are in denial that the band is no more. Their songwriting was more Emo-punk with theatrical vocals and a neo-Goth appearance. Tell me if this was not the coolest band to watch live. Gerard Way vocals are something you’ve not heard and are yet to.
Their signature songs are ‘Welcome to my black parade’, ‘Famous last words’, ‘I don’t love you’, ‘Mama’, ‘Teenagers’, and cancer all from The Black Parade album. ‘Nanana’ and ‘sing’ both from their last album ‘Danger Days; The True Lives of The Fabulous Killjoys’
My Chemical Romance still remains, as one of the most iconic rock bands to me and anyone willing to explore in this genre will Love them.
ALL THAT IS ANTI
Rihanna is back. Loud and unapologetic about it. A lot of rave reviews on her new material which I personally beg to differ. I think ANTI is a cool and different record. This is the most artistic and most personal album she has ever done. Say what you want to say but the record is already platinum as we speak. I know its not a typical riri album as producers incorporated dark,sparsely layered,minimalist song structures, as the lyrics dealt with complexities of romantic love and self assurance.
You will love some songs and if you are still stuck in the past of what Rihanna should sound like,You will not like most of this jams.
My favourite songs in the album are, Consideration, Higher,Love on the brain,desperado, Never Ending,close to you and needed me which is very deep lyrically.
Vocally,riri took this album to a whole new level and you can still hear her Barbados influence in some of the songs which makes it even more sexy and exciting to listen to.
