So another singing Hollywood star eh? Well not exactly, 30 Seconds to Mars is Jared Leto's band, but the point is: this is a real band not just some stupid spoiled Hollywood's brats ego trip.
Mr Leto has got a great voice and songs such as "Attack" and " Beautiful Lie" are well enough written and performed to be guaranteed radio hits. The production sounds like a million bucks. Musicianship is good and overall professional. The downside is this sounds like every other American alternative "rock" band these daysI
As for me, i just don't get it. This is really waaayyyy too emotionally slick and pretentious for me, and what's worst it has a Björk cover in it. Besides I really think that bands like Glorious Bankrobbers could make their next 6 albums just for the budget that went into this albums drum tracks and every one of them is gonna kick this albums ass. Anytime.
If you're into My Chemical
Romance, Hoobastank, Creed... etc, you'll probably gonna love this.
